Unlike material items, your cash donation will provide year-round funding that will help Canadian children and youth.


$ raised to date

This season, help fulfill the year-round wish list of kids who need someone to believe in them. Instead of giving material goods, make a cash donation to provide support for needs like:

Counselling – to address devastating effects of past trauma

Education – to improve educational outcomes and help increase earning potential

Housing – to provide housing needs for youth “aging out” of care at 18

Enrichment Activities – to build self-identity, social well-being and healthy development

Your donation can change a future.

• Prescription glasses so I can see the blackboard

MY WISH LIST – by Luca, age 16

Check Mark
• Tutoring that will help me get ready for university
• A mentor with lived experience for guidance
• Learn to budget so I can prepare to live by myself
• First and last month’s rent, so I have something to fall back on when I leave foster care

With your support, Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada can ensure that all kids have the opportunity to thrive – regardless of their pasts.

Donate to Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada, as part of your holiday giving with your workplace, with your community group, or with your family.
