We are now accepting applications from Quebec-based organizations wishing to receive support this holiday season. Two charities will be selected - one serving the greater Montreal area and one serving a community anywhere in Quebec (outside of Montreal). 

The charities will collaborate with CBC Quebec in November and December to showcase stories of people in our community who are making a difference.

Deadline to apply is Friday, October 16 (midnight). Please complete the below form in its entirety.

Criteria 

Charities must be:

  • Based in Quebec.

  • Actively serving Quebec's English-speaking community (in part or in whole).

  • A registered charity and comply with all required regulations.

  • Able to collect online donations.

  • Nonpartisan and not be affiliated with a political party.

  • Prepared to put forward 'real people' and stories – ie. clients who will talk on camera/radio.

Last year's selected charity was the Montreal Children's Library, an organization that brings learning and literacy opportunities to children and their families in areas of the city not served by municipal libraries.

"For the Montreal Children's Library, being selected as CBC's 2019 charity was a dream come true", says Amanda Fritz, board member for the library. "Through their partnership, we succeeded in raising awareness about our small but mighty cause. Thanks to our work together, 2019 was a huge success for the Library and we are committed to leveraging all exposure they gave us in the years to come."
