Join our School Fundraising program to unlock exciting learning materials and activities!

Since 2004, Gifts of Hope has reached millions around the world with life-changing gifts that give back. These gifts are made possible by the generosity of people like you!
Gifts of Hope cannot be wrapped like regular gifts you buy at the store, but they do unwrap huge possibilities for those who receive them – from goats, school supplies, clean water access and essential health equipment, to entrepreneurial ventures for women and girls, and vitally-needed supplies in times of emergency.
With Plan International Canada, as part of one of the world’s oldest and largest international development organizations, your donation goes directly to the gift you choose – helping children, families and communities in need, just as described.
You can feel good about giving Gifts of Hope to the person in your life who has everything because your gift will work double duty to both delights, and support today’s most important causes
