Acts of Giving programs

TELUS Days of Giving

Every year TELUS Days of Giving, our global volunteer movement, brings together team members, retirees, family and friends, customers and fellow citizens to give back and make positive impacts in our local communities.

Community Ambassadors

Our network of 23 TELUS Community Ambassadors volunteer clubs comprises over 5,000 current and retired team members from across Canada who spend their time and resources to support our local communities year round.

Volunteer Rewards

We reward our team members and retirees with a $1 donation toward their charity of choice for every volunteer hour they record in a calendar year.

TELUS Match

We help our team members and retirees double their impact by matching their donations to eligible Canadian registered charities, to a maximum of $2,500 per person, per year.
