Charities Called. Canadians Answered. The Great Canadian Giving Challenge was a Success!
After 30 days of generous giving from Canadians across the country, the results of the Great Canadian Giving Challenge are in – and it’s safe to say the first annual event was a sweeping success!
Over $6.3 million in eligible donations, 41,000 Canadians participated, over 7,500 eligible charities, and over 50,900 donations.
On July 1st, 2015 the Baptist General Conference of Canada (BGCC) was randomly selected as the lucky winner of the first annual Great Canadian Giving Challenge. The winning charity was elated to learn that they will receive the $10,000 donation from the GIV3 Foundation.
Thanks to everyone who generously responded to our plea. Though we missed the $10,000 prize, you enabled us to raise over $1,600 which will go a long way to furthering our vision of building affordable seniors housing in Bowser. At present, funds are being accumulated for upcoming development costs, such as road access construction costs, which are precursors to the construction phase.
We could not have achieved nearly so much without the support of our community and those beyond our borders, of which you are an important part.
Once again, we thank you for your support and belief in our vision.
