The Canadian government is matching donations made by individual Canadians from January 12 to February 12, 2010. MCC is eligible for these matching funds which essentially double the value of a donation.
How it works
- An individual donates to MCC’s Haiti earthquake response.
- MCC informs the federal government of the amount received from Canadian individuals and explains in detail how the money will be spent.
- The government matches the funds for approved projects dollar for dollar. The funds can be used for humanitarian, early recovery and reconstruction assistance in Haiti.
This follows procedures from previous disasters in China and Burma in 2008 when MCC received a total of $1.9 million in matching funds.
