Giving

Your gift to Centraide is combined with thousands of other donations along with investment from social partners and the work of thousands of committed volunteers to create a true lever for change. Centraide invests your donation in a network of community agencies where needs are greatest so that it has the biggest impact in the fight against poverty and social exclusion. In Greater Montreal, one out of seven people receives help from a Centraide-supported agency.
