Every Donation Counts.

The Catholic Children’s Aid Society of Hamilton has been supporting children, youth and families since 1953. While the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services funds our organization, there continues to be a critical need for community support due to funding reductions we experience to support children and youth in our care.

You can make a difference today by donating to the CCAS Hamilton.

There are a number of ways you can make a gift in support of the Catholic Children’s Aid Society of Hamilton. The simplest and most convenient is to make a gift online through CanadaHelps.org. You can also make a gift through the mail or by calling the Society. Whatever method you choose know that your donation is going to support the children, youth and families our agency has been blessed to serve for over 60 years. Gifts can also be made in the memory of a friend or family member who has passed away.

CCASH has partnered with CanadaHelps.org, a not-for-profit charity portal, to facilitate online donations on our behalf.

CanadaHelps.org offers its services at a very low cost to the charity and at no cost to the donor. CanadaHelps.org charges the lowest rates available. Its charitable mandate is to aid the charitable sector by reducing some of the administrative costs associated with fundraising as well as to make donating easier for Canadians.

By streamlining our expenses we will be able to give more funds directly to the needs of children in our care. Online donations and communications reduces administration costs and provides specific benefits to the donor, such as lower material consumption, personalized communication options (donors can regulate how recent and frequent the charity communicates with the donor), and faster response times.
