Ways You Can Give

We are grateful for the generous support we receive from donors and we want to make it easy for you to make a difference! Here’s how you can help children and families and prevent child abuse and neglect.

Donate today

You can make a one-time gift or set-up a monthly donation, which helps provide meaningful, ongoing support to children and families all year-long. You can also honour a special person with a tribute donation or remember a loved one with a gift in memoriam.

Many of our families experience poverty and social isolation and the measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 will impact these families. You can donate to provide emergency support for families at this critical time.

Wish & Give – Inspiring Kids to Give Back

Many of our donors tell us how important it is to them that their children learn about giving back to their community. Sometimes it’s buying and donating a needed item or weekly volunteering as a family or hosting a garage sale. And then there is Wish & Give!

Wish & Give offers a really easy way to get kids involved and it’s a great tool for birthdays or for teacher’s gifts. You plan an event, choose your charity (we are on there!), and invite your guests. Guests, whether they attend or not, can then donate to the charity you have selected AND contribute to a gift for the guest of honour! And that’s the wish and give – kids get to wish for a special present and they get to give to a cause they care about. Win-win

It’s great for adults too! Think retirement parties, anniversaries, office parties, weddings and of course, birthdays!
