When Palliative Manitoba joined the Great Canadian Giving Challenge at the beginning of June, they set a goal of $2,500. By the third week of June, they were still pushing to reach that goal and like the calm before the storm on Thursday Terracon Development extended their pledge from $1,000 to $5,000 and openly challenged others. Today, Qualico matched the $5,000 pledge – pushing Palliative Manitoba well beyond their fundraising goal!!
“We are truly humbled and grateful for the donations made by both Terracon Development and Qualico,” says Kelly Kluger, acting executive director, “All donations big and small have helped us go way beyond what we were hoping for with this national challenge”.
The Great Canadian Giving Challenge is an initiative from GIV3 and CanadaHelps, the organizers of Giving Tuesday Canada. This challenge runs from June 1 to June 30, 2016. Every dollar donated to Palliative Manitoba online by any individual or organization in June will help them get a chance to win $10,000 to support program and services.
