Large or small, your gift is important. Just $45 will keep one child warm this winter.

The Snowsuit Fund raises funds for the purchase and distribution of snowsuits to needy children, 15 years and under, in our community- 16,000 or more every year. 

Your financial support directly contributes to the purchase of snowsuits. Our volume purchases and long-standing relationships give us the power to negotiate the best possible prices with Canadian suppliers of high-quality warm snowsuits.

There are many ways to give.

Annual or Monthly Donations

Thousands of Ottawa donors share their warmth and support our mission through financial donations made on an annual or monthly basis. 

Monthly donors opt-in to scheduled pre-authorized payments charged to their credit card. Such year-round support is beneficial to our Depot operations and is a convenient solution for those who want to spread their payments out.

Online donations (one-time or monthly) may be made quickly and easily by completing the form below.

In Memory or In Honour gifts are a meaningful way to recognize a person or an event. Your gift to the Snowsuit Fund can pay tribute to a loved one or someone special who has passed away or to celebrate an important occasion – be it a wedding, birthday or anniversary.

Leave a Legacy

If the Snowsuit Fund is an organization close to your heart, leaving a gift in your Will is an easy yet deeply profound way to create a legacy that will live on through the children your gift will serve.

You can donate cash, securities, or a percentage of your estate after your bequests are fulfilled. The tax savings realized may actually increase the amount of money you leave to your loved ones.

Legacy gifts can provide several benefits that your financial or legal advisor can help you to maximize:

  • Reduced tax burden on your estate
  • Increased charitable support
  • No immediate cost
  • Flexibility to change your Will if your plans change 

Stock & Securities

Stock and security donations are the most efficient way to support a cause you care about.  When you give the gift of stock to The Snowsuit Fund, capital gains taxes do not apply.  

Gifts of securities can be made easily online through Canada Helps by clicking the button below. You can also download the attached document for your broker to transfer directly to the Snowsuit Fund account. Kindly call us directly to advise us of your pending donation or to answer any questions.
