Donate Aeroplan Miles

The Stephen Lewis Foundation is proud to be one of the charities supported by the Aeroplan member donation program. Through this program, Aeroplan members are able to donate their unused reward miles to the Foundation and Aeroplan will top each donation with an additional 10%. For instance, if a member donates 1,000 miles online, then Aeroplan will add an additional 100 miles.

In keeping with their environmental programme Green It Up, Aeroplan has committed to fully offset carbon emissions from all our flights taken using donated miles.

To date, Aeroplan and its members have contributed more than 65 million miles to the Stephen Lewis Foundation! Since 2006, we have used donated miles to support work in 15 African countries. Donated miles have enabled us to bring the voices of African grandmothers and grassroots leaders to the forefront, create partnerships through our mentorship programme, send our field representatives to see the projects firsthand, and bring together community workers to share strategies and experiences with psychosocial counselling, orphan care and home-based health care.

Below, Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign member Judy Johnson talks about how donated Aeroplan Miles facilitate the work of the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign, the Foundation, and its partners!

Help us spread the word by encouraging your friends and family to donate their Miles to the Stephen Lewis Foundation!
