This June, the Society to End Homeless has once again taken on the Great Canadian Giving Challenge!

Charities across Canada are facing fundraising shortfalls and a number of operational challenges due to COVID-19 and the associated social distancing – many charities are in danger of closing their doors. To help charities like us survive and continue to offer our valuable services, CanadaHelps has launched the sixth annual Great Canadian Giving Challenge with an increased grand prize.

What is The Great Canadian Giving Challenge? It is a National public contest to benefit any registered Canadian charity. Every $1 donated to a registered charity in June via or, automatically enters the charity to win an additional $20,000 donation. The grand prize draw will take place on July 1st, Canada Day, and one lucky charity will receive this new grand prize of $20,000. CanadaHelps knows that the charitable sector has been hit hard by COVID-19, and has doubled the prize this year! 

This year we’re asking donors to support our campaign to End Homelessness in Burnaby while also entering us for a chance to win the $20,000 grand prize!

Thank you all for your support!
