Colliers Greater Toronto Corporate Responsibility

At Colliers, we truly care

We’re all about making our business more responsive and our people more active in the community. We're about offering an opportunity to learn and grow; all in a quest to achieve greater collective success for our city. This is why we continue to be a strong supporter and are actively involved with our local charitable partners throughout Toronto.

The Colliers Cares Program was established to guide our company’s efforts in making charitable contributions to the communities in which we do business. Every two years, Colliers Cares chooses new organizations to support and partner with.

Charities are chosen by a selection committee made up of Colliers employees representing various lines of business.

Employees are invited to nominate a charity they feel is worthy of Colliers’ support but it must meet specific criteria that address issues of destruction, disease, underprivileged families and youth, or investment in human potential.  Employees, with representatives from the charity, present to the selection committee who will choose 2-3 charities every year.

Colliers is proud to support three very worthy charities in 2017-2018. 

Charitable Partners

eventsThe mission of Make-A-Wish® Canada is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
 
Along with the national office, eight regional chapters grant magical wishes to children in need from coast-to-coast. Make-A-Wish Canada is an affiliate of Make-A-Wish® International, the largest wish-granting organization in the world, making dreams and wishes come true for more than 415,000 children since 1980.

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.

One-to-one and group programs, for both in school and outside of school. Colliers is supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters Toronto in 2017 by donating $15,000.



Easter Seals Telethon Ontario LogoThe 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”.
