YWCA Toronto believes that all women and children deserve to enjoy and celebrate holidays, special occasions and the milestones of their lives surrounded by the families they cherish. 

Your donation to YWCA Toronto's Adopt-A-Family Fund will help us leverage discounted pricing so we can purchase the gifts, food, clothing and individual gift cards that help mothers meet the needs of their families during the holiday season and beyond.

With your support, we can provide women-led families with an opportunity to celebrate holidays, in accordance with their faith, with dignity and pride.

We are so grateful that donor generosity in the holiday season allows us to extend the program throughout the year, so that families can enjoy other holiday events and festivities in special, meaningful and memory-making ways.

Here are examples of what your gift can do:

  $50 can provide a child's holiday gift or TTC tokens for a family.     $75 can help with additional food costs for family celebrations.
  $125 can help purchase clothing, footwear, and outerwear or stock extra groceries.     $250 can help several families offset cold-weather wear or transportation.
  $500 can provide  several families with the necessities of life now and throughout the year.    

















If you are making a donation on behalf of a group that will require multiple tax receipts, please call Neha Trivedi at 416.961.8101x360 to process your group gift.

If you are making an individual donation as part of an organization, please indicate the name of the organization in the comment section.

“Thanks to Adopt-a-Family, I was able to buy the things I needed to make a wonderful Christmas Day breakfast and dinner for my kids. I am so thankful and know that I will pay it forward some day.”

– Andrea

I can’t imagine what the holidays would have been like without your generous donation. Thank you for making it a special time for me and my family.”
