OUR PARTNERS

Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada works with 72 child- and youth-serving agencies in nearly every province and territory across the country.

PARTNERSHIPS ARE ESSENTIAL FOR THE WORK OF CHILDREN’S AID FOUNDATION OF CANADA

Our partners help us to make a positive impact in the lives of children, youth, and their families involved in the child welfare system.

  • Our partnership with our founding partner, the Children’s Aid Society of Toronto, enables us to operate as a Foundation.
  • We rely on partners to use our granted funds to benefit children and youth.
  • Our partners within the child welfare sector connect us to the cause and help us to learn about the needs of children and youth.
  • By putting donor dollars to work and reporting on impact, partners are instrumental in helping the Foundation secure additional funds to increase our reach to help more children and youth.
  • Partners ensure that we reach children and youth across the country.

 

Every partnership is unique and we look forward to exploring opportunities to collaborate with organizations that align with our work.

WHO WE PARTNER WITH ACROSS CANADA

We partner with local, regional, and national organizations that serve children, youth, and families involved in Canada’s child welfare system, or that are connected to this population in other ways, and that have innovative, evidence-based program outcomes. All partnerships must advance at least one of our four pillars.

To receive granted funds as a partner, an organization must be a qualified donee or connected with an organization that is a qualified donee that could act as a trustee.

Collaborative Partnerships allow Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada to collaborate with organizations on a number of issues related to child welfare.                             

Strategic Alliances allow Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada to advance its strategic objectives to help children and youth or to fundraise to help more children and youth.

How can my organization partner with Children's Aid Foundation of Canada?

If you are interested in becoming a partner, please fill out a request for partnership form so that we can learn about your organization and the children and youth you serve who are involved in the child welfare system, and explore potential partnership opportunities.

How can I know if my initiative would be of interest to Children's Aid Foundation of Canada?

Will the initiative benefit children, youth, or families involved with child welfare in Canada? Is your initiative evidence-based, evidence-informed or looking to build evidence? Does the initiative fit within one of Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada’s four pillars (prevention, healing and recovery, education, or enrichment)? If you answered YES to these questions, then we’d be interested in learning more about your work. Please fill out a request for partnership form.

How can I apply for funding?

The Foundation may post applications for funding or seek funding partners periodically as funding allows and as opportunities arise. To be considered for funding or to be included in communication about funding opportunities, please fill out a request for partnership form so that CAFC can know more about your organization, who you serve, and the types of funding in which your organization is interested.

Do you fund outside of Canada?

No. Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada only supports organizations working in Canada.

Are funds available nationally?

As a national organization, we are interested in supporting organizations in all provinces and territories. As there are few organizations working at a national level to serve children, youth, and families involved in the child welfare system, Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada distributes national program funds to organizations with a local, regional or provincial focus.

What ages of children do you support?

Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada is interested in helping children and youth aged 0-29. Funding available for partners to use to help children and youth may be restricted to certain age groups.
