Help us make the future friendly

Join us during #FutureFriendlyDays and help give back. Here are six ways you can participate.


Donate the Change

Round up your monthly TELUS bill and donate 100% of the difference to the TELUS Friendly Future FoundationTM to help at-risk youth have a brighter future.


Donate your pre-loved devices

Donate your pre-loved phones or tablets at a TELUS store and we’ll give them to help someone in need.


Donate online

Your donation will help over 2 million youth and other vulnerable populations annually in communities across Canada through the support of local charities.


Donate when you purchase

Give back to local kids and communities in need at your nearest TELUS store - at the till or by purchasing a Friendly Future tagged product. All donations raised in-store will be donated to the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation in support of your local BGC (formerly Boys and Girls Club of Canada) chapter.


Donate your time

It’s easy to give back to our communities year-round. Through safe and virtual giving activities, we can all do our part to make a friendlier future for all. Here are some ideas to inspire you.


Donate your TELUS Rewards
