Altruvest Charitable Services is a registered Canadian charity founded in 1994 by a group of business leaders. Its mission is to foster more effective charities and stronger Canadian communities by enhancing the governance skills of charitable sector boards and senior leaders, and by expanding the availability of prospective board members.


This grant is to support the national roll-out of Altruvests BoardMatch program. BoardMatch matches prospective board candidates, as a member of the board of directors. The program also provides training for volunteers and charities concerning the critical issues of board governance.

Altruvest is working in partnership with Community Leadership Programs in Calgary and Thunder Bay to offer BoardMatch in their communities. The local Community Leadership Program is a complementary funding under the grant.
