TELUS Commits $2 Million In Funding To Address Humanitarian Crisis In Ukraine

In response to the growing humanitarian crisis in Ukraine and its devastating impact on children and families, the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation has announced a $2 million commitment to support the efforts of Canadian charities that are working to provide assistance to families and those displaced by the conflict, including Canadian Red Cross, Save the Children Canada and other national and local charities.

This commitment is in addition to $500,000 in donations and in-kind support that TELUS and its team members have already provided in support of the crisis in Ukraine, including:

  • Launching an employee donation matching program – to date, TELUS team members have donated $100,000 to the Canadian Red Cross, matched by TELUS, for a total of $200,000.
  • Giving an initial $150,000 donation to the Canadian Red Cross from the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation. 
  • Activating a Text to Donate program, enabling customers to make a $10 donation to Canadian Red Cross Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal by texting UKRAINE to 20222 from their mobile device.
  • Enabling TELUS customers to donate their TELUS Rewards points to the TELUS Friendly Future Foundation to support the Canada Red Cross Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal.

To help keep customers connected to loved ones, critical information and resources to keep them safe, TELUS is waiving all long distance charges, including calls and texts, made from Canada to Ukraine as well as roaming charges for any customers currently traveling in Ukraine.
