How your gift will be used

We know that the face of poverty is changing in Toronto. Today, it could be your neighbour, colleague or family member. We now need to think differently and act collectively if we want a more equitable and liveable city for all.

A planned gift is a gift promised today and given to the future. With the support from donors like you, a very personal legacy gift to WoodGreen will directly translate into improving the lives of the people and communities we serve. Your philanthropic legacy will ensure WoodGreen meets the needs of approximately 40,000 people each year and empowers individuals and families living on low-incomes; newcomers; vulnerable seniors; mother-led families transitioning from shelters; at-risk youth; individuals seeking employment; people with mental health issues and developmental disabilities; and older men transitioning from homelessness.

Together we can help people find safe, affordable housing, seniors live independently, internationally-trained professionals enter the job market, parents access childcare, children and youth access after-school programs, newcomers settle in to Canadian life, homeless and marginalized people get off the streets, youth find meaningful employment and training and provide a wide range of mental health supports.

Thank you for considering WoodGreen as a destination for this special gift.
