Marymound gives children and youth in care a stable and safe living environment while also offering opportunities for them to thrive. By focusing on each young person’s strengths, special talents and skills are uncovered that help to build their confidence and a stronger sense of self.
The benefits of academic achievement, musical or artistic talent, or excelling at a sport greatly contribute to the growth of youth as they transition into successful adults. You can offer our children more opportunities by supporting these funding options that help them overcome challenges and reach their goals and full potential as they integrate back into the community.

In Memoriam and Commemorative Gifts
More friends and families than ever are making donations to charitable organizations in lieu of flowers or gifts as it is a meaningful way to celebrate weddings, anniversaries, births or other special occasions. Making a donation as a memorial to someone who has passed away is another way of honouring those close to your heart.
Marymound also accepts donations in honour of individuals and groups and sends a card of acknowledgement to the honouree(s) or family of the loved one who has passed on. You may do this online, by mail or in person.
You can provide funds for Marymound through a bequest in your will, a gift of a life insurance policy. Another option is setting up a charitable trust to provide you with income now and a gift to Marymound in the future.
