Group Holiday Giving

Collaborate with colleagues or friends to create a sense of holiday cheer and social connection while supporting vulnerable children and youth. Together, you can raise donations for kids at risk while connecting your fundraising efforts to a fun holiday-inspired initiative. Working remotely? Pair your holiday giving with a virtual team lunch & festive sweater/headwear competition or assemble a digital cookbook comprised of family favorites and circulate the holiday baking recipes in lieu of a cookie exchange.

We’d be thrilled to brainstorm ideas to help you tailor a fun and engaging fundraising initiative for your workplace, school or community group. We can also provide Foundation resources like videos and key messages to help inspire your efforts and share with your network.

Sponsor a Family

Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada’s Holiday Season Celebration is an occasion that kids at risk will look forward to this December, and provides a chance for them to feel celebrated and part of a larger community during the holidays.

A gift of $500 will enable a family of four to participate in the event. From a virtual variety show performed by professional entertainers, to holiday gifts and gift cards to enjoy a family meal, this year’s celebration will continue to engage and delight children and youth in care who often experience the holiday season as a sad and lonely time.

We are grateful for support at all levels of giving to ensure that kids at risk across our community will have a celebration to look forward to this holiday season.

Donate Gift Cards

Gift cards are a great way to provide children, youth and families at risk with the opportunity to shop for their own holiday gifts, food and other essentials. This year with the COVID-19 pandemic prohibiting toy and gift drives, gift cards are a great way to support these populations, and provide you and your group with a collective activity.

Gift cards collected by the Foundation will be distributed to youth in foster care and families at risk in collaboration with our agency partners during the holiday season.

Gift cards in $25 denominations are preferred, and suggested retailers include Walmart, Loblaw brands, Shopper’s Drug Mart, Amazon, H&M, Indigo, Sport Check, Tim Hortons, McDonald’s, Starbucks and Ultimate Dining Card


In order to ensure we can deliver gift cards to those in need before the holidays, we ask to receive them by December 4, 2020.

To coordinate gift card drop off or for any questions, please contact Hira at or (416) 923-0924.
