Donations

The Children's Aid Society of London & Middlesex (CASLM) believes all children have the right to thrive in a safe, stable and loving family. Although our core services are 100% government funded, we rely on donations from corporations, organizations and individuals to offer additional support not provided elsewhere for children and youth served by our agency. 

Please see below for Funds & Programs and How to Donate. Gifts in Kind items that are new are accepted with gratitude.

FUNDS & PROGRAMS

Activities, prevention programs and educational support reduce the incidence of child abuse and neglect, and the need to come into CAS care. Through special programs and funds, children and youth are able to enjoy and experience the things that many of us take for granted, including summer camp, recreational activities throughout the year (music lessons, organized sports, art classes) and gifts during the holiday season. 

  • Bright Futures Bursary Program Awards bursaries to youth in care to support their post-secondary education.

  • Educational Success Program - This programs assigns mentors to children to help guide and tutor them throughout their educational journey from elementary school until they graduate from post-secondary school.

  • Hopes and Dreams Fund - Recreational activities including camp, music lessons, organized sports, and art classes. 

  • Emergency Funding - A crisis support fund to assist families in times of great need.  This emergency fund helps to ensure the basic needs of children are provided for such as food vouchers and clothing.  Please note that this fund is only accessed when no other resources are available.
  • Holiday Giving CampaignThis annual campaign offers the joy of the season for children and youth served by our agency. Collections of toys, pajamas and monetary donations begin each November. Distribution to those registered with our program occurs the third week of December.

    The 2018 Holiday Giving Campaign was accessed by 514 families for 1,160 children and youth.  We greatly appreciate the generous support of the community for making this possible through an abundance of donations and many volunteers giving their time and energy. Together, we made the holiday season brighter for others. 

    We will start collecting for Holiday Giving 2019 in November/December.
