More Ways to Give


Empower your employees to give back in way that hits close to home. In addition to financial and in-kind donations, we welcome your talented team to lend their skills and expertise in the form of mentorship and volunteering. Find out how your organization can help:

Charity of Choice

Are you hosting a fundraiser? We'd love to be your charity of choice! Get in touch and we'd be thrilled to explore ways we can support your event whether that's a letter from our Chair, a video message from an award recipient or something else. 

Leadership Giving

If you're looking for the perfect philanthropic opportunity to create a strategic and lasting impact, we'd love to hear from you. We're happy to create bespoke giving opportunities to align with the positive impact you want to make. 

Adopt a School


If you want to support a school that is important to you and your community the Merit Adopt-a-School program is unique. It is a partnership with inidviduals, community businesses and associations in the greater Toronto area.

Sponsor an Event


Connect with our recipients and get involved with key events like our June Awards ceremony or our August networking event. Or get involved throughout the year with fundraisers like our annual matching campaign,  Bowling for Bursaries, and Wine Raffle. 

Growth Vision 

We have an "Above and Beyond Plan" for  growth. We are growing the depth and breadth of the program - adding more schools, more students, and more school boards in Toronto, Peel, Durham, York, Halton and Hamilton.

Help us get there.

90% of All Funding Goes Straight to Bursaries.

Merit has been an instrumental part of my life. I attribute so much of my personal and career development to the family I have built as my time as a recipient and a volunteer.
