Community Grants

At TELUS, we’re building a better future for all Canadians, by giving back to our communities. By focusing on socially innovative local, grassroots initiatives, we fund community projects that are helping to make the world a better place.

Team member giving

Each year, TELUS volunteers collectively donate over 1.3 million hours to help the communities where we live, work and serve.

All Connected for Good

Our Connecting for Good programs are making a difference, ensuring that the most vulnerable among us – including at risk youth, seniors, families and people with disabilities – have access to the technology and connectivity they need.
