Giv3 launches Pivoter
Charitable organization Giv3, in collaboration with CanadaHelps, has launched a new website called Pivoter. Located at <http://www.pivoter.org>, the service is aimed at the non-profit sector. It is intended to provide a place for Canadians to post ideas about charitable initiatives and vote on them. In addition, participants can win a $5,000 donation to a registered Canadian charity of their choice in a draw that will take place on Feb. 28.
"Canada continues to have significant, systemic problems across her non-profit sector, yet policymakers are failing to address them," said John Hallward, president of Giv3. "There are many possible policies in support of this critical sector, with no cost to the public purse, however the Federal government has remained apathetic for many years. We can no longer afford to leave our hopes for a more civil, fairer Canada in the hands of wealthy foundations and complacent elected officials."
