Making Your Points Matter
About the Aeroplan Member Donation Program
Aeroplan and Air Canada want to help you make a difference. As Citizens of the World, we are consistently looking for ways to contribute to the sustainability and well-being of our communities, while also building relationships with our employees and customers. By working together, we can truly do more to make a positive difference in the lives of those in need.
Since 2006, the Aeroplan Member Donation Program has been helping members give back to causes that are close to their hearts. We’ve helped members support Canadian-based initiatives that are working to improve lives and assist communities locally, across Canada and around the world. Since its inception, over 1 billion points have been donated by Aeroplan Members.
How it works
Think of it as an online platform where Aeroplan Members can connect with more than 300 organizations, charities and causes that they care about, and help make a difference in the world by donating their points to worthy initiatives.
In some cases, community members can join forces to use donated points to help families or individuals in need of serious medical help or for other kinds of emergency assistance.
In addition, Aeroplan would like to join you in reaching your goal for a specific fundraising event. If you reach 75% of your goal, Aeroplan will donate 10% to help you get to the finish line.
Giving purpose to your points
Where do your donated points go? The Aeroplan Member Donation Program allows approved charities to establish an account through the program and set a specific goal for the number of points they want to raise through member donations.
Drawing from these donated points, charities can then redeem within the Aeroplan Program for such things as air travel, car rental, hotel stays and merchandise. Charities can also use donated points as prizes for fundraising, along with items obtained through redemption of donated points, such as laptops and gift certificates.
