Employee giving

Sun Life matches up to $1,250 each year, per employee and advisor,* to the charities of their choice. There are three categories:

Financial donation

In support of Employee Giving, Sun Life’s program will match donations dollar-for-dollar to registered Canadian charities up to the individual employee maximum.

Volunteer time

Sun Life’s Volunteer program recognizes the efforts of Employees and advisors who volunteer for a registered Canadian charity of their choice. We will donate $20 for each hour they volunteer, directly to the charity they support.

Each year, Sun Life recognizes the extraordinary community involvement of our volunteer leaders through the Sun Life National Volunteer of the Year awards. The top five volunteers who track the most volunteer hours receive $1,000 to donate to a registered Canadian charity of their choice. The following one hundred volunteers receive $50 to donate.

Activity donation

Sun Life’s Activity Donation supports Employees and advisors who participate in physically active events to raise money for health-related charities across Canada. Sun Life will donate $20 for each registered charitable walk/ride/run event in which they participate.
