We want to hear from you!
Service organizations, like Kin Canada, are a great way for individuals to get involved in their local community, make new friends, and develop new skills, yet many Canadians don’t know that service clubs exist!
Service clubs help make communities better places to live, work, and play, and we want to make community-focused volunteerism opportunities more accessible and attractive in Canada.
Please take our short survey to share which community needs you think Canadian service clubs should focus on, as well as what you personally would want out of your local volunteer experiences.
Take our short survey to tell us what you think!
As a thank you for your time and feedback, you will have an opportunity to opt-in to a draw. A minimum of 8 winners will be drawn. Winners will choose a registered Canadian charity to receive a $250 donation in their name.
All individuals who complete the survey by November 15, 2023 are eligible to opt-into the draw.
Thank you for helping shape the future of Kin Canada and volunteerism across the country!
