The Community Boost Program
In 2019, CAA Niagara selected the Kristen French Child Advocacy Centre and the Distress Centre Niagara to each receive a $10,000 donation.
In addition to the initial financial contribution, CAA Niagara will promote these Niagara charities through a variety of channels which include the CAA Magazine, social media, community events, and a wrapped flatbed truck, all encouraging our 135,000 Members to provide support through a "text to give" program.
CAA Niagara has a strong history of improving the lives of people in our region. Over the past few decades, CAA Niagara has donated everything from Jaws of Life to fire departments to mini tow trucks at the Niagara Safety Village.
In 2018, CAA Niagara decided to pool its donations and large sponsorship dollars to fund a new, more focused corporate giving program, now known as CAA Niagara Community Boost.
