You are making the difference!


Let me start by saying thank you, without you Canada Without Poverty would not be here.

You are what enables us to continue to create important and influential work like Dignity for All – the national anti-poverty plan, our submissions to the UN or our Economic and Social Rights Online Course.

You keep our doors open and lights on so that people in poverty can continue to have a stronger voice across the country.

We are here because of you, we don’t receive any government funding or support.

To show our appreciation, we are making it easier and safer for you to donate to CWP.

You can now donate to CWP without leaving the website. Simply visit and you can donate straight from the CWP website.

You can become a long term supporter by taking the Pledge to End Poverty and become a monthly donor. Poverty will not be solved in a day and working to make real systemic change takes time.

By becoming a monthly donor you are maximizing your impact on CWP. Your generosity enables us to better plan for the year ahead, it reduces costs and enables us to continue to grow and represent those living in poverty across Canada.

By becoming a monthly donor, you are joining hundreds of people across Canada in moving forward and committing to end poverty once and for all.

You can also now make gifts of securities donations.

Donating securities is an easy way to contribute to Canada Without Poverty’s important work across Canada. Securities donations include donations of stocks and mutual funds.

The Canada Revenue Agency does not apply capital gains tax on donations of publicly traded securities. Capitals gains are the increase in the value of your securities over the price you paid at purchase.

Any gift, no matter the size, is appreciated by everyone here at CWP. Your support is what keeps CWP going.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me anytime. You can reach me via email at james[at]

Thank you for being such a vital member of our team!
