Ways to Give

We are grateful for the generosity and kindness of our donors, who have helped to make a difference in the lives of over 6000 vulnerable children, youth, and families since Children’s Aid Society started serving the community in 1902.

An average of $300,000 a month is required to sustain Melrose Home and Melrose Care’s range of residential care, counselling and specialised therapy services for the vulnerable in the community. By making a contribution today, you support and champion our causes, help to make our community a safer and more conducive space for children and young people to grow, learn and play!

Children’s Aid Society is an Institution of a Public Character (IPC) and a member of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS). All monetary (made online, in cash, or cheque) to Children’s Aid Society are eligible for 250% tax exemption.
