Mission and Goals
The Children’s Aid Foundation helps Canada’s most vulnerable kids overcome the obstacles in life that hold them back. Working with child welfare agencies in every part of the country, we support the nation’s most innovative programs and services in the areas of prevention, enrichment, education and healing and recovery.
How Your Contribution Helps
The Children's Aid Foundation is playing a critical role in improving the lives of young people involved with the child welfare system – our nation’s most disadvantaged and disenfranchised population of young people – from infancy to young adulthood. Working with our cross-Canada partner network of over 40 child welfare agencies, we fund the nation’s most innovative programs and services for this vulnerable population in the key areas of prevention, enrichment, education, and healing and recovery. Last year, we granted over $6 million and touched the lives of over 21,000 vulnerable children and youth in every part of Canada.
"We adopted our daughter from Children's Aid when she was an infant. We always have large parties and prefer to have one gift and also give money to a charity. Echoage was an easy way for us to celebrate my daughter's birthday and give back to an organization that is close to our hearts."
