What could your community do with $40,000? Take up your tablets, click on your cell phones and head to your computers! The National Trust for Canada is pleased to announce the launch of the 2016 This Place Matters competition. This online, social media-driven competition allows Canadians to vote and donate to save places that matter to them.
Fourteen communities from across the country are participating in this national crowdsourced competition with the chance to win $40,000. In addition to earning votes, participating community groups can use this innovative web platform to raise money for their projects and gain access to training and tools to help them run a successful campaign. Canadians are invited to visit www.thisplacematters.ca to view the participating projects and vote for the project that resonates with them.
