Encourage donations

Broadview staff work hard to attract revenue from subscriptions, advertising and various grants to support the award-winning journalism produced in the magazine and online. But these revenue sources don’t cover all of its costs. That’s why Broadview also relies on the generosity of donors to support its mission — to be a strong voice for progressive Christianity in Canada.

When you give to the Friends of Broadview Fund, you help to ensure the ongoing health of the magazine and its digital platforms now and for future generations. Your money will be used to strengthen our current subscriber base and to undertake initiatives to engage new generations of readers both in print and online.

To make a tax-receiptable donation to Broadview, please visit or phone 1-866-807-5515.
