Donate to the DCF

tcd_portrait2_low.jpgYour gift - be it large or small - will give momentum to Canadian social democracy for years to come. As Tommy Douglas famously said "Courage my friends, 'tis not too late to build a better world". 

Since 1971, with Tommy as its first president, the Douglas-Coldwell Foundation and its donors have been committed to promoting education and research in social democracy in Canada. November 2021 will mark the 50th Anniversary of the Douglas-Coldwell Foundation!

From the day we opened our doors until his passing in 1986, it would have been Tommy Douglas himself asking you to support the Foundation. Today as keepers of Tommy's Legacy, we are asking you to continue to help build a charity he poured his heart and soul into with a donation.

The Douglas-Coldwell Foundation is a Canadian registered charity - Membership fees and/or Donations will receive a charitable tax receipt and are 100% tax deductible.

Online donations including membership fees will receive a charitable tax receipt by email immediately for one time contributions and monthly PayPal contributions will receive one emailed tax receipt for all your contributions this year early in the new year. Donations received by mail in our office and monthly banking contributions will receive a receipt by mail early in the new year.
