At TELUS, we understand that each unique community has unique needs. That’s why we put community funding in the hands of local leaders who know our communities best.
TELUS Community Action Grants
Community Action teams provide grants of up to $5,000 to Canadian registered charities and non-profit organizations in smaller communities where TELUS does not have Community Boards. They contribute thousands of dollars to hundreds of youth focused programs in our communities.
Giving where we live
In 2018, the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation launched as an independent charitable organization founded to address the social and economic challenges facing Canada’s disadvantaged youth.
Made possible with an unprecedented $120 million donation from TELUS, the Foundation provides financial grants to charities across Canada working to help vulnerable youth thrive in our digital society through better access to health and educational opportunities, enabled by technology.
Building on the achievements of our 13 TELUS Community Boards across Canada, the TELUS Future Friendly Foundation will help vulnerable Canadians, especially youth, succeed for decades.
Together with the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation, we have:
Supported 6,689 projects
Contributed $78 M to grassroots organizations
See how we are making a difference in communities across Canada and around the world.
Currently active in five countries, TELUS International Community Boards support grassroots projects, charities and organizations.
