Individual Donors

Build the community you want to live in.

When you donate to Christie Ossington Neighbourhood Centre, you provide a safe bed for a neighbour, a healthy meal for a community member, arts and literacy programs for children, social opportunities for seniors, employment support for low-income adults, and entrepreneurship opportunities for youth.

Here are some examples of how your donation will be used:

$25 will buy art supplies, personal hygiene products, laundry detergent, bedding, children’s books, or supplies for seniors’ recreational programming

$100 will buy protein for a lunch in our Drop-in, which serves up to 200 people a day. Your gift will add meat, nuts, or tofu to a nutritious, hearty meal for our vulnerable community members.

$300 will allow us to plan an outing with our Drop-in Senior’s Group, including TTC fare and a healthy lunch.

Please call us to discuss your giving wishes and needs.

Giving Options

1)  Make a one-time donation. All donations above $10 are tax deductible, and every contribution helps us to serve our community.

2)  Make a monthly donation. By committing to support CONC as a monthly donor, you are helping us to plan consistent, effective, and ongoing services and supports. An on-going monthly gift is one of the most powerful ways you can help us achieve big impact in our communities.

3) Gifts in-kind. We will gladly accept in-kind donations! Please contact us to discuss and make arrangements for donations larger than a few bags or small items. For suggestions, view or list of in-kind donations and gifts of service.

4) Celebrate by giving back. Looking for a way to give back while you celebrate a milestone, like a wedding, baby shower or birthday? Organize your next special event as a fundraiser. Ask party goers to put their present money towards both buying a personal gift and donating to a CONC program of your choice. As an added bonus, you can help us share in the fun by sending us pics from your event to be featured on our website & social media as community member of the month!

Here you can come in and get healthy salads, hearty sandwiches and great coffee. But to review it on those merits alone would be an injustice to what it’s actually doing for the neighborhood. What is unique about LOFT Kitchen is that it operates as a non-profit cafe with a special mission. All proceeds earned here go to help sustain and support social programing

Customer
LOFT Kitchen

During the most difficult times of my life I was welcomed at CONC. I was provided with food and a safe environment as I look for housing and work. An appointment was scheduled to meet with staff from various programs to help access and determine my needs so that I can begin to get my life back together. Without their support this journey would have been much more difficult on my own.

When I first came to CONC I was at my lowest, I had lost everything and had no hope. Working with the Housing Team has been the best thing for me, they helped me to find housing and then I was able to find a job. I am very happy to have met the workers at CONC as they have helped me rebuild my life again.
