What is All Charities?
The All Charities
Campaign is registered as a Private Foundation under the Canada
Revenue Agency and categorized as an Employees' Charity Trust.
All Charities is a workplace campaign that enables employees to
donate to charities of their choice through the convenience of
payroll deduction or a one-time gift by cash or cheque. The All Charities
Campaign is volunteer driven by employees of the Manitoba
Government and its affiliates. The decision of how much to
give and to which charities is left entirely up to each
individual donor. Since its inception in 1966, the All
Charities Campaign has raised more than $39 million for thousands
of charities within Manitoba and across Canada.
All Charities is
quite unique in that it truly is what the name implies ... "All
Charities" are eligible to receive donations ... any one of the
85,000+ registered in Canada! One of the biggest features
of this campaign is that 100% of every donation collected
is paid to the charities - not one penny is used for
administration purposes or processing fees. And, in
fact, every charity named during a campaign receives 100% plus!
How does that work? Well, each year we have employees that
donate, but they do not designate the funds to a particular
agency. These unallocated donations are pooled until the
end of the year. Once all the donations collected have been
verified and totalled, each charity will receive a pro-rated
share of the unallocated donations. For example, if a
charity received 2% of the total donations collected, they would
receive 2% of the unallocated donations ... very fair and simple
In the fall of
2014, the campaign exceeded the $2.0 million mark again - $2,035,274 was pledged to hundreds of
charitable organizations (see Results & Reports)! We congratulate and thank the
dedicated volunteers who make this campaign a success each year.
Special thanks to the donors for their generosity!
