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. 

We are grateful for all donations received including TD Canada Trust grant money from the Children's Aid Foundation.

Please see below for Funds & Programs and How to Donate. Gift-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 Fund Awards bursaries to youth in care to support their post-secondary education.
  • Emergency Fund - A crisis support fund when other resources have been exhausted to assist families in times of great need including food, clothing and basic needs.
  • Therapy for Children in the Community Fund
  • Hopes and Dreams Fund - Recreational activities including camp, music lessons, organized sports, and art classes; also assists youth transitioning to independent living.
  • Holiday Giving Campaign - For children and youth ages infant to 18 who are in the community (not in care) while being served by our agency currently. The campaign assists approximately 500 families and 1,100 children/youth who are connected with CAS. Collection of gift-in-kind items runs from November 1st until the third week of December. Donation requests are for new items such as baby and learning toys; building, craft and art kits; family board games, teen gift sets; sports equipment; retail gift cards; and pajamas in sizes infant to adult XL, male and female. Find our Wish List here.
