DESA’s fundamental belief is that we all have the ability to pay it forward.

No amount is too small, no effort is too little. And we know paying it forward can be easier than you think. Right now, communities across Canada and the US are in need more than ever.

When your company buys a creative services package you receive a discount. These discounts are in the form of charitable dollars, which can be donated by DESA on your behalf.

We know there are many charities in need of support which can make it hard to choose just one to help. Below are a selection of Canadian and US charities. Of course we are happy to direct your charitable dollars to any registered and accredited charity in Canada or the US of your choosing.

DESA is not in any way affiliated with CharityIntelligence.ca,  CharityWatch.org or the charities listed here.   The websites act as a great resource when researching both Canadian and US charities. Revenue will be donated on your behalf to a charity of your choice. You and your brand partners benefit from a taxable donation, and society benefits from your campaign.
