"We're proud to partner with World Vision Canada by donating uniforms to support children's education in developing countries. While this aligns with our core values of being proud of what you wear, this partnership also helps us manage our supply chain efficiency and aligned costs. This ensures our resources are applied to what we do best -- offering students in Canada quality uniforms at great prices."

Frequently Asked Questions

World Vision does not accept used products of any kind, and we do not accept any products from individuals or households.

We want to treat children and families with dignity. Used household products (e.g. clothing, footwear, toys, etc.) require sanitizing, sorting, qualifying, classifying, and repackaging. We have found that it is far more effective and impactful for us to accept new and large quantities of products from companies which will enable us to save cost and maximize funds to support programs.

In fact, we increasingly integrate donated products into community development programs in the same manner as cash resources. Donated products can be of great use in emergency relief situations, but most donated products currently compliment development activities. Our field staff assess needs and request for specific resources to support specific programs.

For example, medicines and micronutrients are used to improve access to quality essential medicines and support maternal and child health programs. Donated books are used to establish or stock school libraries, resource centers and boost literacy in communities. Specialized equipment and tools can assist entrepreneurs and small businesses to flourish.

We send donated products to support our programs all around the world.

In many cases, there is no local production of similar quality goods, thereby eliminating much of the concern for competing with local companies. Our donated products are distributed over large geographical areas so that no single resource plays a significant role in the local economy. We are also careful to monitor the amount of donated products that enter a community to prevent them from adversely affecting local businesses or donors.

When resources are available, accessible and affordable in a country, we prefer that they are purchased locally instead of needlessly paying shipping and handling costs.

We are proud to be a leader in fundraising in Canada and are committed to following the regulations set out by the Canada Revenue Agency. It is the same benefit for a company to write off a gift-in-kind donation from its inventory as it is to receive a tax receipt for cash donation.
