All the ways TELUS gives back.

Giving with our hands and hearts.

Writing a cheque to help your community is great. Rolling up your sleeves is even better. From coast to coast to coast, we’re helping to make communities better and stronger.

Making an impact locally.

Making an impact locally.

Our innovative community boards—steered by local community leaders—are the people who make our funding decisions. The boards offer grants to grassroots initiatives that support local youth, with preference given to projects that demonstrate tangible technological or social innovation. Since 2005, TELUS Community Boards have distributed more than $58.5 million to 4,800 projects in our communities worldwide. Since then we have positively impacted the lives of more than two million youth and their families.

Together we’re making a difference in communities across Canada.
