Eighty-seven percent of Canadians are likely to be diagnosed with a major illness such as cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, arthritis or diabetes in their lifetime. That comes with a heavy price: $90 billion in treatment and lost productivity every year. Aligning with HealthPartners and our 16 charities sends a meaningful message to your employees and clients about your commitment to improving the health of Canadians. Find out how your workplace donations can make a difference in the lives of those suffering from chronic illness and disease.
Here’s Living Proof™ of your HealthPartners donations at work.
Your dollars can transform the lives of Canadians. A bi-weekly pledge to HealthPartners, via the Government of Canada Workplace Giving Campaign (GCWCC) or a private sector employee giving campaign, can make a real difference over the course of a year.
