When you make a transformational gift to WE Charity, you empower a generation with the opportunity to create a better future. Your investment will help ensure long-term financial security for our programs at home or around the world, creating truly sustainable impact. We invite you to join us in further discussion about how you or your company can make a transformative investment in a project or cause that matters to you.
WE Villages empowers communities to lift themselves out of poverty through holistic and sustainable solutions that are tailored to each community’s needs. It’s not a handout or a single solution, but a combination of key interventions that enable a community to help themselves. Our local staff work with rural villages and regional governments to support, teach, and empower people within five Pillars of Impact: Education, Water, Health, Food and Opportunity.
Support a specific international project or community.
We’ll work with you to help you fund a project or initiative where your support is needed most. Whether you’re matched with a community to support a new classroom to give children access to education, or you help fund a clean water system for a specific community, your support will give children and families the opportunity to create a bright future for themselves and the next generation.
Provide substantial sustainable development and growth.
This gift helps us sustain our WE Villages programs for years to come. We will connect you with our country team to ascertain which projects would directly benefit from this substantial gift. Your impact will fundamentally transform the future of our partner communities, helping them achieve what they never dreamed possible.
Through our domestic programs like WE Schools, we develop and implement service-learning programs that empower students to be change-makers for life. As we move toward our 25th anniversary, together with your support we can bring new programs and resources to life, such as WE Well-being and WE Social Entrepreneurs.
Support a domestic program or event
As a valued supporter of WE Day events or the WE Schools program, your investment will help provide educational resources, tools and action campaign ideas to empower young people and families to make a difference in their communities and around the world. If you choose to become a patron family of WE Day, your gift will help provide students the opportunity to be part of a powerful experience that brings together world-renowned speakers and performers with tens of thousands of young people to celebrate their commitment to making a difference.
Become a founding partner in empowering young leaders of tomorrow
WE is proud to be launching the WE Social Entrepreneurs (WE SE). A proud partnership with the Government of Canada, this will be Canada's first program dedicated to building social entrepreneurship skills, supporting nationwide scaling of social enterprises for young people under the age of 35. Your support will help bring to life business solutions that apply to society's greatest social challenges, making way for a new generation of social entrepreneurs.
We are grateful to Thor Richardson for his landmark gift to launch WE Social Entrepreneurs. Innovative, dedicated and socially conscious—Thor is a young professional with a mind for business and a heart for global change. He’s co-creator of the vision behind the new WE SE, an idea that first started taking shape on a walk in Kenya’s Maasai Mara with WE co-founder Craig Kielburger back in 2017. The vision was born out of a belief that young people are the business builders of the future and that together we can empower youth in Canada to use entrepreneurship for good.
“Social entrepreneurship is the future. The line between business and nonprofit is coming closer and closer together. I think we’ll be really amazed at what young people can do if you just give them the tools to do so and be in the driver’s seat to solve problems, giving them that mindset to take action.”
