Growing with Care, Helping with Heart

The Small Change Fund is about people: helpful experts whose experience, knowledge, and connections make campaigns and programs soar. We assist community leaders achieve solutions to important environmental and Indigenous issues.

We are different than most charities. We don’t just raise money for ourselves, we raise money for our partners. We don’t just run our own programs, we collaborate with diverse partners to seek ambitious results across the country. And we deliberately share our knowledge and experiences with Canada’s change-makers.

The last two years have seen some big changes for us. We brought on veteran leaders Burkhard Mausberg and Franz Hartmann. They have transformed our organization by bringing in new programs and partners, and expanding the services we offer to our partners.

We now help Canadians with community engagement, communications, strategy and funding to set the table for successful campaigns. And we still use our award-winning crowdfunding platform to raise the funds needed to achieve real tangible impacts, from cleanups and tree-planting, to protecting rivers and improving public transit.

Using the power of storytelling, we help our partners share their stories to engage a wide audience of supporters. Currently we have some 30 active partners and campaigns.

The Small Change Fund provides a platform to promote ideas that may not get any attention otherwise. It also gives credibility and accountability to your campaign.

The Lake Winnipeg Foundation

The Small Change Fund has been wonderful to work with! It’s been so easy to collaborate, share resources, and raise funding for our project. This partnership has opened doors for us and made us much more confident in the success of our project.

A Greener Future

Another change is that we now run our own programs – campaigns, research and communications. We express our leadership on areas important to Canadians and ‘walk-the-walk’ to advance a progressive agenda for the country. From tackling flooding with natural infrastructure and greening the film and TV industry, to the carbon tax and the Green Future Fund, we accomplish change with targeted programs.

That happened only because Small Change Fund believes in people. We believe people know how to fix the problems in their communities, their cities, and their country. We believe people can make change without access to long studies, thick reports, and big money.

People helping each other by crowdsourcing big change.

Let’s us show you how.
