Text Size: A A

In celebration of its 125th anniversary, iA Financial Group is launching a Canada-wide philanthropic contest with the purpose of helping a charitable organization realize a project that will help it grow and shine. Recognized charities from across the country have until September 30th to submit a community project that is close to their hearts and enter for a chance to win a boost of $125,000. To be eligible for the contest, charities and their projects must meet certain criteria*. They must:

  • Be registered with the Canada Revenue Agency
  • Aim to improve the quality of life of Canadians
  • Operate in the health, education or social services sectors
  • Provide assistance to individuals – we are not looking for organizations that help other organizations
  • Propose a project to be launched in 2018

All projects submitted, big or small, will be reviewed. At the end of the submission period, in the fall, ten projects will be selected by the jury and presented to the public, who will then be invited to vote for the charity that has submitted the most inspiring project. The winning charity will receive a donation of $125,000 and the nine remaining finalists will each receive a donation of $12,500. The winning project will be announced on December 11th.
