Equitas > How to Donate? > Partner Fundraising Initiatives
Why not donate a portion of the proceeds of an organized activity or a line to Equitas? Whether it’s contributing a portion of the profits of a line of clothing, or of a ticketed event, each dollar you raise will support human rights education in Canada and around the world.
As Canada’s most active and recognized human rights education organization, Equitas is looking forward to working with companies or individuals that share the same values as us and that are committed to building more inclusive and more equitable communities.
Globally and in Canada, Equitas works to advance equality, social justice and human dignity through transformative human rights education programs. We are a passionate team of human rights defenders working on many issues such as gender equality, racism, rights of LGBTQ2I communities, youth rights, and so many more.
Our team can help you refine your project with suggestions, visuals, and content to make your project meaningful and impactful to human rights education. We also review your project to make sure that the fundraising activity complements Equitas’ mission and to ensure we can enhance the visibility of your project.
We’ll ask you a few simple questions on your project so that we can agree on a few points, like if and how to use our logo and which social pages to tag – and the same for you!
We love win-win partnerships: we can share your page and promote your project with our followers too.
Thank them for contributing to human rights education and donating yours proceeds to Equitas to be a part of creating real and last change.
