Talking to funders about decent work

Funding a future for decent work in nonprofits

Nonprofits are turning to decent work practices to improve the quality of life for employees, while also supporting more effective and impactful outcomes for organizations.

Decent work practices mean employment opportunities, fair income, health and
retirement benefits, stable employment, opportunities for development and advancement, equality and rights at work, and culture and leadership. As a philanthropic practice, a commitment to decent work can guide funding in a way that recognizes and values the expertise and leadership of communities, and the organizations that work closely with them.

On this page, you will find tools and resources to engage nonprofits and funding organizations in conversations to help build – and fund – decent work across Ontario’s nonprofit sector.
