GivingTuesday encourages all Canadians to join in by celebrating the spirit of community leaders who are #raisingahand for causes they care about. SSE Ontario invites its community to cheer on the extraordinary people who make our neighbourhoods and workplaces better places to live.

How can you participate?

1) Today only, November 29, 2016 participate in SSE’s “Double Your Dollars” Matching Program. Thanks to a generous anonymous donor, gifts to SSE Ontario made between now and midnight PST on Giving Tuesday will be matched dollar for dollar up to $5,000 total.

This means, for example, that your $50 contribution will be matched with an additional $50, thus making a total of $100 available to SSE Ontario, a project on Tides Canada’s shared platform. Double impact giving will help us keep our doors open to community leaders from all walks of life.

Donations to SSE Ontario are tax-deductible. Tides Canada Initiatives Society is a Canadian charity registered with Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), BN: 130560188 RR0001.
