The Great Canadian Giving Challenge — Donate Now
Together, we can change lives!
Oshawa Public Libraries enriches the lives and potential of the people of Oshawa by connecting them to the world of information and each other, and you can help!
Could you imagine not having access to the internet?
The COVID pandemic has clearly shown us that having access to the internet is not a luxury or convenience but a service essential to the quality of our lives. As the internet continues to replace many of the more traditional aspects of our everyday lives, like virtual learning for kids, accessing government or essential health services, or staying connected with loved ones, people who cannot afford internet access are disadvantaged. Access to the internet shouldn’t be a privilege.
Each Wi-Fi device costs $150.00 to purchase, and the monthly subscription for unlimited connectivity costs $50.00 per device. You can help those who can’t afford the internet and bridge the digital divide by supporting our Wi-Fi hotspot lending program with a donation today.
How it Works
This June, every $1 you donate to Oshawa Public Libraries automatically gives us a chance to win a $20,000 donation through the Great Canadian Giving Challenge!
A random grand prize draw will be held on July 1 to determine the winning charity.
The Great Canadian Giving Challenge runs from June 1, 2021, to June 30, 2021.
