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.

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!
