At Closer to Home, we rely on our family of donors to help us provide the programs and services families in our community need. A quarter of our financial donations come from individual donors just like you.
These contributions, big or small, help moms and dads develop parenting skills in programs through the West Central Community Resource Centre; they help new Canadians discover the resources available to them in their new home; they help Aboriginal families learn effective parenting strategies; they help children and youth learn the skills they need to make friends, succeed in school and thrive as adults. Ultimately, they help build stronger families who feel empowered with the knowledge, skills and resources they need to stay together.
Monthly giving helps Closer to Home meet the true needs of the children, youth and families in our community. Consistent contributions like these allow us to structure and plan our programs more efficiently and effectively, distributing funding to the areas with the most need. Donors who commit to monthly gifts have peace of mind in knowing they are making an ongoing impact in our community.
Plus, monthly giving is easy, convenient and affordable! When you donate through our secure online giving platform, CanadaHelps, you can set up automatic monthly withdrawals for any amount you choose. For your convenience, you will receive a single charitable tax receipt directly from CanadaHelps at the end of the year. Donors who prefer to give via post-dated cheques can contact our Fund Development Department at (403) 543-0550, Ext. 250 to get set up in the program.
