Ways of Giving

All children deserve a family and to live happy and health lives. Make a 100% tax-deductible donation today to give to some of Ontario’s most vulnerable children.

Become a Monthly Donor

Every year in Ontario, 6,000 children are in foster care without forever families. Of these, 1,000 children age out of care (at age 18) leaving them alone with no family or supports. You can help change the numbers.

By joining the ACO Ambassadors’ Monthly Program you will now be part of an important community of individuals who have joined together to make a difference for today’s and tomorrow’s children.

  • Youth Network (14-24 years old) - enables youth to bring their experiences and perspectives to the tasks of education, advocacy and peer support
  • Youth and Parent Peer Support Programs –important programs to connect families with experienced peers who have gone through their own adoption experiences and can share their learnings and provide support to others
  • Permanency and Adoption Support Services - Clinical post-adoption social work services for the community are critical to avoiding adoption disruptions and ensuring the creation of life-long families. Included are group support services, individual and family counselling, search and reunion services and peer mentoring
  • Educational opportunities
