Employee Engagement & Giving

Top workplaces partner with Operation Smile to engage their teams and provide life-changing cleft lip and cleft palate surgeries for children.

Community Volunteers

Meaningful Corporate Partnerships

A partnership with us delivers smiles to your employees and to children living with cleft conditions around the world.

We believe your corporate success and our social impact are interdependent – the same passion, energy and culture of innovation that makes you a successful company can also be leveraged to make a profound and positive difference in the world and in lives of children and their families.

Whether your team is looking for a volunteer opportunity, already has an idea for a fundraising campaign or is looking for new employee engagement activities, we would love to connect with you and explore how your organization can work with Operation Smile Canada.

Our cause is universal so your partnership will have significant, real-world impact. The effects of creating a smile are tangible and transcend all cultures and backgrounds. With the help and support of our partners, we help children eat, speak, and lead more hopeful and productive lives.

Together, we can ensure children who lack access to quality healthcare can get the safe surgery, care, and bright future they deserve.

Employer Matching Gifts

Looking for some creative ways to increase the impact of your donation to Operation Smile Canada?

Many employers have a matching gift program that can double, or even triple, the impact of your personal donation to Operation Smile Canada. In fact, some companies even match gifts made by retirees as well. So it never hurts to double check.

You can find out if your employer offers a matching gift program by checking with your Human Resources department, or by entering your company name in the search tool below. Often all you need to do is submit a copy of your tax receipt and your employer sends us a matching gift – often matched 1-1, 2-1 or even 3-1. It’s easy! Search below to see if your company matches gifts and learn how to claim your match!
