Trellis is a social enterprise enabling charities and their supporters (champions) to make beautiful fundraising pages while saving them time by automating tax receipting and payment processing. Through our pages, customers are able to increase their ticket sales and donations by featuring engaging content, additional donation prompts, and up-sell options throughout their event and campaign.

Our mission is to empower organizations in the social sector so they create more impact in their communities. By fostering social enterprise, sustainable development, and impact-focused work, Trellis is shifting the nonprofit and charity sector into the future of sustainable social development. Our company is called Trellis because we want to support the growth of the charitable sector to promote collective impact within our communities.

IMPACT – focused on long term, sustainable outcomes.
COLLECTIVE – it is everyone’s responsibility, not just charities, to help fix our world’s toughest problems.
GLOBAL – we are a scalable solution.
POWER – we create tools and a platform to simplify how people can make a difference.

Trellis was built out of a desire to create more impact in our communities. I travelled across Canada, spoke to over 100 charities and they told me what to build. This fundraising software was inspired by Charities for Charities.
