All children have the right to thrive in a safe, stable and loving family. Children's Aid Societies have the legal responsibility to keep children safe throughout the province and provide mandated services to protect and care for children. Although mandated services are funded by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services, programs to enrich the lives of children rely on generous donations. Enrichment and education programs for children and youth are made possible through generous donations from corporations, organizations and individuals.

You can have a positive impact on Oxford County's most vulnerable children and youth by making a donation to the Society. Every contribution, no matter how big or how small, is greatly appreciated. Three ways that you can assist us in making a difference in the lives of children and families in Oxford County:

Endowment Fund

In 2011, the Board of Directors of the Children's Aid Society of Oxford County established a donor designated Endowment Fund within the Oxford Community Foundation. The purpose of the Endowment Fund is to enable the Society to direct donations to a fund that will gather interest which can then be directed to assist clients, including former Crown Wards of the Society, who require program or financial support that cannot otherwise be provided through the Society's Operations budget. The Fund will also be used to enable children who are living in the community with their families who are receiving service from the Society to attend summer camp or other special programs that they would not otherwise be able to participate in due to the financial limitations of their parents. The Fund may also be used to support new initiatives or pilot programs that address service gaps in child welfare or family violence.

Camp for Kids

The “Camp for Kids” fund provides fees to day and overnight camps for children and youth who would not otherwise be able to go without some financial assistance. Making crafts, meeting new friends and enjoying the great outdoors are just a few of the memories these campers will have, thanks to donors like you.
