Beyond membership - Donations are important

Investing in Community-based Research  

Did you know that we are a charitable organization that receives no ongoing funding from any level of government?  Membership, donations and research contracts sustain CSPC year round, enabling us to advance efforts in changing outdated systems, thinking and policy. You, we, us - we make it happen.  

The Council's voice - and your voice - is made stronger by bringing people together and working towards more just systems, re-balancing the equity equation, lifting people out of poverty, educating citizens about the enormous costs of childcare, and other important life isses. Our role as a social research and planning council is to gether evidence on matters affecting our residents, including newcomers, seniors, youth and famlies. We work with a diverse group of partners, including government, non profit agencies, individuals, coalitions and donors, to move the agenda forward on income, equality for all, resiliency, diversity and other important life issues.   

Donate today - and feel great. Your gift will help improve the quaity of life for everyone in the region.  

When paying through PayPal, you will automatically get a charitable receipt.  

Please also know that you can help fund important research projects through a larger gift, and of course, the very best way to support the Council is through a recurring monthly gift. A  gift of $40 per month will increase our capacity to tackle more issues, resulting in an improved quality of life for everyone.
