Description

Results is a grassroots advocacy nonprofit that believes in mobilizing everyday people (our volunteers) to generate the political will to end extreme poverty in low-and middle-income countries. Our volunteer network advocates so the Government of Canada is aware of options to end extreme poverty, helping people living in poverty with the health, education and opportunity they need to thrive.
With the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty coming up in October 2023, we are planning a big fundraising campaign! We operate free of government funding, which means we rely on grants and donors to operate. Donations help us better support our volunteers who advocate by writing letters to the editor (LTEs), using social media or engaging with parliamentarians directly.

If you’re ready to learn about advocacy, extreme poverty and Canada’s part to play in the world, join us! No previous fundraising experience necessary.
What you get as a fundraiser:
• receive fundraising training and support
• learn about global health, the causes and consequences of extreme poverty, and the solutions to address it
• certificate of recognition after completing five fundraising actions and raising funds
Commitment
If you’re only interested in gaining fundraising experience, you can volunteer with us only for the month of October. That said, we sincerely hope you will stay with us in the long run to try your hand at advocacy as well!
