United Way, Employee Giving and Centre For inquiry Canada

Every year United Way agencies across the country operate annual fundraising campaigns with local events, publicity and partnerships with local employers.  Did you know that you can direct your contribution to CFI Canada?
The process is simple.  When you receive a contribution request form, simply provide CFI Canada’s registered charitable number:
CFIC’s Charitable Number: 83364 2614 RR0001

The United Way will process your donation and issue you a charitable receipt.  They will also forward your designated gift to CFI Canada.  Currently, CFI Canada receives gifts from generous supporters like you in Toronto, Vancouver and Ottawa via United Way Campaigns.

CFI Canada is the leading Canadian charitable organization dedicated to secularism, skepticism, science and free thought…. we need your support!

If your employer provides a United Way employee-giving campaign, or manages one directly (such as the Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign mentioned below), you can support CFI Canada by designating our charitable number.

Ask your Employee Campaign Coordinator or team about directing your donation to a charity of your choice, or ask your United Way agency about their Designated Gift Policy.  Here are a couple of examples to help you inquire about your local designation options:

UBC Campaign in BC says:

United Way of the Lower Mainland’s annual campaign presents donors with several giving options. One option allows donors to directly designate gifts to any registered Canadian charity.

 

According to CharityIntelligence.ca

United Way of Ottawa supports and invests in over 100 agency programs and services….touched all of the 107 neighborhoods across Ottawa. UWO co-manages the Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign (GCWCC) run in all 101 government departments and agencies. This results in a high level of donor-designated donations that UWO collects and disburses to the charities of the donor’s choice.

Why not help your local Branch of CFI Canada by directing your United Way Contribution to CFI Canada?
