Securities Donation

A donation of securities or mutual fund shares is the most efficient way to give charitably since the capital gains tax does not apply. Your security or mutual fund donation means a larger donation for the Humanitarian Coalition and a larger charitable donation receipt for you. All securities donations are processed through Canada Helps, who completes the sales and provides you with the donation receipt for the value of your donation.

Monthly Donor Program

All monthly donations are allocated to our Canadian Humanitarian Assistance Fund (CHAF), which allows us to quickly answer the call to help, regardless of whether that particular earthquake, flood or refugee surge makes the headline news. The reality is that the majority of disasters get little to no media attention, so people don't even have the chance to donate and help survivors. By donating to the CHAF, you can find out about these lesser known disasters and know you are already making a difference and helping survivors rebuild their communities.

And your donation can really add up over a year!

Shelter Icon

$12.50 a month x 12 = $150

You could provide shelter kits for 2 families

Food Icon

$25 a month x 12 = $300

You could provide food for 1 family for an entire year

Fresh Water Icon

$17 a month x 12 = $204

You could provide 2 families with fresh water for a full year

Milk bottle Icon

$50 a month x 12 = $600

Your Impact

$1 donated = $10 to help survivors

For every dollar donated to the CHAF, $10 go towards the project.

In 2017, we were able to quickly mobilize more than $3.2 million to reach 131,000 people through 11 vital projects around the world.
