We Need Your Help

We invite our community to support us so we can continue to make a difference by providing these much needed and important services. Your donations will directly impact the lives of those working hard to access jobs and achieve an economically and socially stable life in Canada. 

 

 

Make Your Donation Go Further

To make your donation go even further, see if you can get it matched! Many employers offer matching gift programs that will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. This means the company will donate funds equal to your contribution to JobStart, which effectively doubles or even triples your gift!

 

Here’s how to get your donation matched:

  • Find out if your company has a matching gift program

  • Even if your company does not, they may be willing to start one. Contact your Human Resources department to find out more.

  • If you company agrees to match your donation, remember to provide your employer with JobStart’s charitable registration number, which is 106881139RR0001.
