So far we have raised $0 towards our $150,000 target! That’s about 0% of the total!

Amma Canada, inspired by Amma herself, is grateful to have supported the needy since 2003. Last year (2022), we contributed $100,000 plus, to social outreach across Canada and in Haiti, and over 7000 volunteer hours.

We are able to do this thanks to your generous donations. We invite you to support our volunteer work by giving generously to our annual fundraiser. Any amount helps.

A donation of $25 or more can be sent by email transfer to [email protected] for a tax receipt. You can also donate by credit card directly on our website. Using the PayPal Giving Fund option on our website will help us avoid any processing fees (but the old PayPal option still works). We also encourage you to donate by Facebook, and/or to create and share your own Facebook fundraiser for Amma Canada (which also allows us to skip processing fees).

For details of various options available for donation, please see ‘How-to-Give’ page.
