Ways to Give

Please support the Our Place mission through the general donation page or focus on one of the current campaigns outlined below.

For those facing poverty and homelessness, winter can be one of the toughest and loneliest times of the year. Dark, rainy days and nights mean shivering bodies and dampened spirits. It takes a lot of courage to find hope when you’re cold, hungry, and struggling.

But it’s hope and belonging that can be found inside the doors to Our Place. People like Jordan, team lead at our New Roads Therapeutic Recovery Community, are there to mentor and coach people because of his own lived experience. Our Place staff are the ones who plant a seed of hope in so many which, in turn, acts as a catalyst for change and a desire to find a path to a better life. It’s a chance for us to connect one-on-one, to begin to build trusting relationships that can lead to more positive journeys.

YES I will nourish HOPE at Our Place and DONATE NOW!

Our Place Society’s Circle of Love monthly donors are our partners in the truest sense of the word. Each month, Circle of Love donors provide consistent, invaluable support, each and every day of the year.

When you become a monthly donor at Our Place Society you will:

  • Save your time (and help us save money) with automatic, paperless giving.
  • Receive one convenient annual tax receipt, just in time for filing your tax return.
  • Help as many people in need as possible, through a very efficient and effective way.
  • Support us in carrying out our vision of nourishment, hope and belonging for all.

Help us open the door to a better life by joining our Circle of Love today!

We gratefully accept donations of publicly listed securities such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. This is a very tax-efficient way to help nourish those in need because the Canada Revenue Agency does not tax capital gains on publicly-listed securities which are donated directly to a registered charity (rather than first being sold). In addition, you will receive a tax receipt for the full value of your donation when the securities are transferred. Please follow the steps outlined on this form. For more information, please contact Jonathan Dallison at jonathand@ourplacesociety.com or 250-940-5066.

Clothing, first aid supplies, and toiletries are always needed at Our Place Society.

Instead of purchasing new items to donate, we ask that you consider donating gift cards or the equivalent cost of the item through our online donation form /calling the Donor Hot Line at 250-940-5060. This will allow us to maximize the impact of your generosity by purchasing the items that are most needed at bulk discounts. Use the ‘Other’ checkbox and ‘Comments’ section to provide more than one gift.

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions regarding in kind donations please contact Julia Dean, Community Relations Officer, dianag@ourplacesociety.com 250-940-5060.
