Along with the national office, eight regional chapters grant magical wishes to children in need from coast-to-coast.

Colliers is the main sponsor for the Rope for Hope event, donating $15,000 to the organization in 2017.
On top of the sponsorship, seven Colliers members fundraised over $12,400 in 2017 for Rope for Hope and rappelled down the edge of Toronto City Hall (73.76 metres) on June 9.
Another Make-A-Wish event that Colliers is sponsoring in 2017 is Adopt a Wish. By donating $10,000, Colliers will be granting a child a wish.

The annual Easter Seals Telethon celebrates success stories, introduces new Provincial Easter Seals Ambassadors, showcases Easter Seals kids and their families, and recognizes those donors and sponsors who have helped us so much. The Telethon takes place in 6 communities throughout Ontario, including Toronto, Northern Ontario, Peterborough, Sault Ste. Marie, South Eastern Ontario and Windsor-Essex.
The Easter Seals Telethon also features various media, entertainment and sports celebrities who dedicate their time to help generate awareness for the needs of kids with physical disabilities, raise much needed funds, and say thanks to our generous sponsors.
Funds raised through the Easter Seals Telethon make a difference to over 20,000 children and youth with physical disabilities in Ontario. With your help, we can reach our annual fundraising goal and ensure that all Easter Seals kids receive the funding they need to achieve a greater level of independence and accomplishment all year round.
Colliers is a proud sponsor of the 2015-2016 Easter Seals telethon, which is broadcast live from CBC studios in Toronto. Colliers sponsored the “Corporate Hour” where our employees volunteered to answer the phones and take pledges. This year the telethon raised over $3 million dollars to “help kids be kids”.
