Project selection process
Every spring, charities can submit a specific project to be featured in the calendar. Organizations can apply through an online process. Application Process
First stage of selection
Based on the online applications, we determine which organizations meet the prescribed quality standards and criteria to be considered as suitable partners. Requirements include registration as Registered Canadian Charities, transparency and the sustainability of their objectives. Requirements for partner organizations
Second stage of selection
Suitable applicants are then invited to produce a detailed project outline. Based on a defined set of criteria, we verify the idea and the specific impact of the good deed. Criteria for evaluating the good deed
In this stage, 32 organizations will be short-listed. After personal phone interviews with each of them, 24 projects are selected for presentation to our advisory board.
Assessment by experts
During this stage, projects are assessed once more by an independent advisory board consisting of experts from the relevant fields (environment, education, healthcare and nutrition/infrastructure). Advisory board members can inquire about and clarify any concerns and can ultimately advise against supporting a given project
A contract is signed with each organization. This formalizes the relationship between 24 GOOD DEEDS and the organization and commits the organization to thoroughly track the project process through supporting documentation such as reports, receipts and pictures.
