Donations to Charities and Non-Profit Organizations

At EthicalHost we believe in the importance of corporate social and environmental responsibility. One of the key ways we try to be a good corporate citizen is by donating 10% of our pre-tax profit back to the community.

We recognize there are so many important areas that warrant donations but we have chosen to focus on the following three areas which we care about deeply: 1) Economic/Social Justice in Canada, 2) Environment and Biodiversity, 3) World Poverty and Human Rights. We have limited it to three areas of focus to ensure that our 10% donation does not get divided too thinly. We compiled a list of three organizations per category based on our own knowledge of the important work they do and from the suggestions of our clients.

Please see below for more information about our selection process for corporate donations.  Corporate transparency is important to us at EthicalHost.

In addition to donating 10% of pre-tax profits, we further our commitment to corporate social and environmental responsibility by telecommuting, using public transit, supporting local and cooperative businesses, minimizing paper use and using 100% post-consumer products wherever possible.  We also offset our company’s energy usage with carbon offsets as well as purchasing green power direct from bullfrog power for our office.

Our mission is to maintain personal contact and financially assist women in South Africa who are caring for AIDS-orphaned grandchildren.

Boost For Kids:
Boost CYAC is committed to eliminating abuse and violence in the lives of children, youth, and their families. We believe that all children and youth have a right to grow up in a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment. We are dedicated to the prevention of child abuse and violence through education and awareness, and to collaborating with our community partners to provide services to children, youth, and their families.

AMMA Canada:
The inspiration behind Amma Canada, Amma is well known for her humanitarian works by world organizations such as the United Nations. Amma Canada was registered as a charitable organization in 2003. Prior to incorporation as a charity, volunteers from the Greater Toronto area used to collect clothing, non perishable food items and household appliances and donate them to established charities such as Covenant House, Jean Tweed Centre, St.Felix Centre, Interim Place, Red Door Shelter,..etc.

Environment and Biodiversity

Peninsula Streams Society received our donation for the 2016 tax year.

Ecosource is an Ontario-based environmental education non-profit serving youth, adults, and families. Our work began in Mississauga and has expanded throughout the Region of Peel and beyond. Their Mission is To inspire and empower the community to become more environmentally responsible through creative public education.

Best Friends:
The mission of Best Friends Animal Society is to bring about a time when there are No More Homeless Pets. We do this by helping end the killing in America's animal shelters through building community programs and partnerships all across the nation. We believe that by working together we can Save Them All.

Helps coordinate stream restoration and habitat conservation on the Saanich Peninsula. We provide our associated groups with the technical expertise and resources to help achieve their goals. Our goal is to achieve healthy aquatic habitat that supports self-sustaining populations of native species in both freshwater and marine environments.

World Poverty and Human Rights

Women's Earth Alliance has received our donation for the 2016 tax year.

ONGOING: see my profile here:

International Committee of the Red Cross:
The ICRC responds quickly and efficiently to help people affected by armed conflict. We also respond to disasters in conflict zones, because the effects of a disaster are compounded if a country is already at war. Emergencies are unpredictable, so our rapid deployment capability is hugely important.

Women's Earth Alliance:
Our mission is to equip women with the skills and tools they need to protect our earth and strengthen communities from the inside out. We work with local leaders who build up other leaders. One becomes two, two become four, four become eight, and millions.

Children are cared and provided with food, clothing, shelter and education, for a better future.

Past Results

Selection Process

Organizations that are chosen for each donation category are taken primarily from suggestions sent to us by our Customers. When more than one customer recommends the same organization, more weight is given to that suggestion. We then compile a list of those organizations, try and fit them into one of our categories as best as we can, and then we do a little research to try and choose ones with the lowest administrative overhead to put on the list for voting.

Each year the winning organization is removed from the list and replaced with a new one for the following years vote.

We welcome suggestions for charities/non-profits that can be added in upcoming years but ask that they meet the following criteria:
--Have a charitable registration number.
--Have a website where they outline their mandate.
--Fit into one of our three categories: Economic/Social Justice in Canada, Environment and Biodiversity, World Poverty & Human Rights.

We will monitor and evaluate our corporate donation selection process, and welcome any suggestions you may have for improvement. We will continue to be transparent about the process and any changes we incorporate. Any organization that consistently receives a small percentage of the vote each year may also be replaced with other groups at our discretion.
