The Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign (GCWCC) is a charitable giving option developed exclusively for federal employees and federal retirees. The annual campaign takes place in federal government workplaces across the country during the fall period (September to December).

Through the GCWCC, federal employees and retirees as well as current and former members of Canadian Armed Forces and the RCMP can support United Ways/Centraides, HealthPartners or any of the other registered Canadian charities of their choosing.

How you can Give

The Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign (GCWCC) is truly a donor’s choice campaign. Not only can the employee choose which charities they give to, they can also choose the form of payment.

An employee can choose from the following payment options:

  • Payroll deduction: allows you to spread your donation evenly over the entire year. Your deductions commence on the first pay in January. Your donation will appear on your T4 slip, the following year, so you don’t have to keep track of multiple receipts.
  • Credit Card: you can choose to give a one-time credit card donation, or spread out your donation with twelve, equal, monthly donations (charged on the 15 of each month commencing January).
  • Cheque: you can pay by cheque, or a series of post-dated cheques. Cheques are made payable to “United Way – GCWCC”
  • Cash: one time cash donation for the amount of your total gift.
