Donate Now

HeadsUpGuys is funded exclusively through public donations. Your support is critical to keeping our resource going.

We have created the world’s most comprehensive resource for men fighting depression, and in the process, are saving lives. 

Donations to our resource qualify for a tax credit, as HeadsUpGuys is a program of The University of British Columbia (UBC), a registered charitable organization.

Donations to HeadsUpGuys are accepted securely through our UBC HeadsUpGuys Donation page. 100% of donations go directly to supporting our work (our team, website updates and development, ongoing advertising, as well as promotional campaigns and materials).

  • Canadian residents will receive an official tax receipt (issued by UBC) for their donations – via email when donations are made online. 
  • Donors outside of Canada who wish to receive a tax receipt, please see below.

HeadsUpGuys keeps costs low, and we proudly run a lean and well-oiled machine. Thankfully, many of the companies we work with, and services we use, offer non-profit discounts, allowing your donations to go as far as possible in supporting our resource.

Your support keeps us going and helps us provide HeadsUpGuys to men across the globe – giving them tools to fight depression and prevent suicide.

How is HeadsUpGuys Funded

HeadsUpGuys is a program of The University of British Columbia (UBC), a registered charitable organization. UBC provides office space, financial administration and human resource management. 


UBC does not provide direct funding to support HeadsUpGuys – which is why donations from the public are essential to keep our valuable resource going.
