Ways to Donate

Why support Nazareth Community?

Many of our residents arrive with just the clothes on their backs, and are welcomed with intervention support, social interaction, work and volunteer programs, and opportunities to heal and grow in a warm, home-like environment.

The number of homeless people, and the length of time they spend homeless, continues to rise and we as a collective are all part of the solution

Here’s how your generosity helps:

$40.00 provides 1 month of heating for an apartment (some of Anne’s House residents have never before had their own door to lock)

$300.00 provides a warm meal for all our residents. (because these are people who have often gone without food…)

$15.00 for new underwear and socks (because some people arrive with just the clothes on their backs)

$6.50 for 2 bus tickets (because job opportunities and doctor appointments are missed without having money for transportation)

We thank you !

Community Spirit

Many companies, schools and organizations understand that giving goes beyond one day a year. Donations come in many forms, whether they are monthly online contributions, specific item collections, seasonal drives, or donating your time and expertise.

Please consider making regular periodic contributions” – this type of donation helps our organization tremendously as it helps us with a stable cash flow.

You can multiply your contribution by:

  • Asking your company if they would make a corporate gift equal or superior to the amount donated by you
  • Asking your employees if they would like to make regular deductions

In Loving Memory

Flowers are beautiful and appreciated, but temporary in helping our community.

A donation to the Nazareth Community will better our residents’ lives.

More and more individuals are honouring their loved ones with a donation to a favorite charity. Many people know somebody who has been affected by some form of mental illness, homelessness or addiction and have expressed their sympathies by making a donation to Nazareth Community: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/nazareth-house/.

In Memoriam donations are acknowledged by a thank you letter.
*Note: Tax receipts are issued for donations of $50 or more.
