For the past 20 years, Chalice has been enriching lives while restoring hope and dignity to people in developing countries through our Child Sponsorship Program. Located in Nova Scotia, Chalice commits over 90 percent of its spending in support of programs. In 2015, $22.3 million was spent directly on programs providing nutrition and education to nearly 50,000 children and elderly in 15 developing countries.

Our Mission: To bring Christ to the poor and the poor to Christ.

Inspired by Christ's love and compassion, Chalice works with local groups to create, support and increase access to education, health, and family livelihood.

Our programs include Child and Family Sponsorship, Human Development Programs, Capital Projects, and Urgency Funding. These programs enable local organizations in 15 developing countries to facilitate sustainable solutions within their communities in Chalice's five impact areas: Education, Nutrition, Health and Hygiene, Family Development, and Community Development.

Chalice has been recognized by MoneySense Magazine as one of the best run Canadian Charities for the past 6 years. Designed to help donors get a better idea for how efficiently charities use their money, the MoneySense rating system provides Canadians with valuable information to make smart giving decisions.
