The busiest season for giving is upon us. It’s that time of year when L’Arche Toronto receives a significant number of donations! Please consider keeping us in mind as you make your year-end gift.

Inclusive community participation has a profound difference in the lives of people with intellectual disabilities. There’s never been a greater need in our community for fulfilling work, volunteer, or high-quality day program activities.

Here’s how you can help:

  • $1,105 will provide one individual with meaningful community participation for one month.
  • $276 will provide one individual with meaningful community participation for one week.
  • $55 will provide one individual with meaningful community participation for one day.

Here are some reflections from core members in our community:

Please partner with L’Arche Toronto to provide high-quality day programs, as well as volunteer and employment opportunities for adults with intellectual disabilities.

We accomplished so much in 2016 and with your help we can do even more in 2017!

Donate by December 31st to receive a charitable tax receipt for your 2016 return!

Are you a first-time donor? The First Time Donor’s Super Credit offers you an over-and-above 25% one-time tax credit on your charitable gifts up to $1,000. It’s available to any Canadian who is new to charitable giving, or has not claimed a charitable donation in the last five years. You can read more on the Canada Revenue Agency website: http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/chrts-gvng/dnrs/menu-eng.html.

…we, the people of this earth, learn to be with people with intellectual disabilities, not just wanting to look after them and give money for their well-being. By living together we will help them to discover their fundamental value. They have gifts to offer our societies and the world.
