Did you know that the Super Recyclers have their own Foundation? The HUMAGO Foundation (Human in Action) has a mandate to raise awareness among the youth of today and tomorrow about social commitment and the environment. The foundation wishes to develop in young people the desire to act proactively for the well-being of others and their planet. The foundation makes it possible to finance the projects of our young philanthropists, while developing awareness and supporting innovation.
Thanks to the Super Recyclers’ used clothing drives, schools and daycare centres can create fundraising activities and campaigns to fund their social and eco-responsible projects.
Fund your campaigns or your projects
You get more with the HUMAGO Foundation.
The Super Recyclers and the HUMAGO Foundation have provided you with a simple way to increase the donations you will receive to finance your school or daycare projects. We produce a personalized page for each school or daycare that participates in a collection on the Super Recyclers site with the details of your clothing drive. This page can be shared in your social networks. Parents and the community will be informed of the date of the drive and where to drop off the clothes. From this personalized page, parents will have the opportunity to easily make an additional financial donation to your school or daycare centre so that your project can be carried out more quickly. They will immediately receive a tax receipt online (for donations over $5).
This allows you to: 1) raise awareness of recycling among young people and mobilize them to your cause, 2) promote your green and social project, 3) achieve your funding goals, and 4) develop philanthropic culture in your institution by encouraging young people and their families to make a concrete contribution to their school.
It’s a simple turnkey solution!
Parents will be able to add their donations from the day 1 of your campaign and up to 30 days after the Super Recyclers drive. Call us at 1-888-853-1898 ext. 2 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to register.

Criteria for applying to the HUMAGO Grant
It’s simple…… Recycle and be proactive!
We ask all participants to make a short video that introduces the organization they have chosen to support and to complete the information in the steps outlined below.
There are only a few simple steps to follow in order for your school to qualify for the HUMAGO grant. You must first inform us of your intention to participate by registering for the “We are philanthropists” Grant before April 1. Each school will then have to produce a video (mp4 format) and send it to us before 5:00 p. m. on May 16, 2019. This video will explain the cause supported, why it was chosen and the actions taken by participants to support it. One of these actions will be to organize a Super Recyclers clothing drive. The goal is to become an active spokesperson for the cause during the school year. If your project wins, the Super Recyclers, in collaboration with the HUMAGO Foundation, will give you a cheque for $1,000 to finance your project or chosen cause.
The Selection Committee will evaluate each application to ensure that all criteria are met in accordance with the Foundation’s mission. The committee will be able to consult candidates throughout the school year.
The selection process is transparent. Strong consideration is given to projects that include the tools offered by the Super Recyclers as part of their fundraising strategy. The selection will be based on the satisfaction of all criteria and how individuals represent their social cause as they take their first steps towards becoming the philanthropists of tomorrow.
The selection committee will evaluate the following criteria:
- the person in charge must be a member of the Super Recyclers Club;
- the originality of the project, slogan and message;
- the level of social engagement and mutual support (how this project has brought people together, or will bring them together);
- how the community participates and engages in the project;
- the social impact of the project to be funded;
- strong consideration will be given to projects that include the tools offered by the Super Recyclers at the heart of their fundraising strategy.
The Super Recyclers and the HUMAGO Foundation will award a $1,000 grant to a school for a collective project. The HUMAGO Foundation and its partners may choose to award several $1,000 grants. You must send us your registration online or by email to participate before April 1 and the final video in mp4 format before 5:00 p.m. on May 16, 2019. A selection committee composed of members of the Super Recyclers and HUMAGO Foundation Board will review all applications and videos. On June 3, the HUMAGO Foundation and The Super Recyclers will unveil the finalists via their websites, newsletter and social media. Finalists will also be contacted directly. On June 10, 2019, the winner will be announced live on the Super Recyclers Facebook and the Foundation will come to your school to bring you the cheque.
