Donations

The Children's Aid Society of London & Middlesex (CASLM) believes all children have the right to thrive in a safe, stable and loving family. Although our core services are 100% government funded, we rely on generous donations from corporations, organizations and individuals to fund additional support not provided elsewhere for children and youth in our care.

Prevention programs, activities and educational support reduce the incidence of child abuse and neglect, and the need to come into CAS care. Through special programs and funds, children and youth are able to enjoy the things that many of us take for granted, including summer camp, recreational activities throughout the year (music lessons, organized sports, art classes) and gifts during the holiday season.
