Ways to Give

All of us look for opportunities to make a difference, to make this world a better place. Right here in our community of Windsor-Essex County, we have the ability to change lives and turn dreams into reality. Review the many opportunities we have to give in our booklet.

You Can Write A Child’s Story

The Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Foundation offers, through the “You Can Write a Child’s Story” campaign, numerous options of how you can make an impact.

The Foundation supports the many programs that are offered to the children, youth and families that the Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Society provides services to. That’s 1 in 8 children in our area. Each of these children has a story, a story that is still waiting to unfold, a story that aspires to a happy ending.

Legacy Giving

For most, conversations with your financial advisor or estate lawyer focus on building and preserving your wealth and assets. When is the last time you talked about charitable giving?

When you plan a legacy gift, you create long lasting benefits that will make a difference in the life of a child. Yet, you are also putting in place certain financial benefits for you and your loved ones. The Windsor-Essex Children’s Aid Foundation extends its deepest gratitude to those who prepare to leave a legacy to assist children supported by our programs.

John and Sophia Chisholm Embracing Family Fund

Families in our community face a number of life challenges including: mental health issues, addictions, intimate partner violence, and the most prevalent challenge, poverty!

WECAF has committed funds to help families being served by WECAS remain together. Funding will be directed to activities, goods and services that are either not funded by the Province of Ontario or are inadequately funded to meet the needs of vulnerable families.

The John & Sophia Chisholm Embracing Family Fund has been established to support families in need and provide them with hope and comfort as they rise up to the challenges they face. Click on the “Donate” button and look for this fund in the drop down menu.
