The Community Impact Grant is our signature Canadian giving program

Our various grant offerings are designed to help organizations and programs that make a positive and sustained impact in their communities.

These grants are administered under the auspices of our charitable trust owner, Benefact Trust.

This national grant program includes four streams of giving:

Community Impact Grant

Funding to support important community programs being developed by selected charities.

Impact Grant

Our largest single donation awarded to a Canadian charity.


Movement for Good

Smaller grants awarded to charities who are making an impact in their communities.

Give for Good

Grants are distributed to charities across Canada as nominated by our employees.

These grant programs are open to registered Canadian charities whose mission align with Ecclesiastical’s deep-rooted commitment to helping youth, marginalized and underrepresented people and making a measurable impact on our communities.

2023 Impact Grant

Giving back is a foundational element of Ecclesiastical’s values. We continuously strive to demonstrate a lasting commitment to helping communities in need.

Each year we offer an Impact Grant to a Canadian charity who makes a positive and sustained difference in their community. The 2023 recipient of this grant is Covenant House.

Covenant House serves ‘youth who are homeless, trafficked or at risk’. They offer more than just shelter and a hot meal; they provide life-changing care with unconditional love and respect. For over 40 years, they have supported more than 100,000 young people, and our Impact Grant will help save the lives of more youth in our communities.

We are proud to award this grant in support of the Covenant Houses in Toronto, Ontario and Vancouver, British Columbia.
