Donation Request Process

Eligibility

We seek out partnership opportunities with local institutions and continue to build on our existing activities that support education, active living, entrepreneurship and the environment. However, any organization working to advance any of these focus areas can submit requests for funding. Disaster relief funding will be determined by Gildan on a case-by-case basis.

Eligible projects must:

  • Demonstrate that their project aligns with Gildan’s community investment policy and focus areas;
  • Be located in regions where Gildan has operations;
  • Be registered and provide a valid charitable registration number; 
  • Be financially sound (provide a copy of their most recent financial statements/balance sheet).

Gildan is not able to support every request it receives. Projects and organizations that are not eligible include:

  • Projects which fall outside regions where Gildan has operations
  • Individuals or charitable appeals for individuals
  • Religious, discriminatory, non-secular, advocacy and/or political organizations
  • Sports organizations, service organizations, social clubs, or private schools
  • Expeditions or overseas travels
  • Third party fundraising organizations
  • Parties or celebration events

How to apply

We accept requests for funds throughout the year. While Gildan wishes to provide aid to all eligible organizations, due to resource constraints, we may not have the ability to partner with all organizations that meet our eligibility criteria.

Proposals should include a description of the organization, its mission statement, area and population served, clear details of the project for which the organization seeks funding, amount requested, project budget and description of funding sources. Some other conditions may apply. Organizations are responsible for ensuring that requests are submitted well in advance of the event or project start date, or approximately 6 to 8 weeks ahead of their deadline.
        
Organizations seeking financial or in-kind donations from Gildan must submit their request in writing.

Proposals should be forwarded to:
