As a non-profit charity that relies almost solely on private donations from individuals, churches and foundations who care about refugees, we are very grateful for every dollar given.  Together we can make an amazing difference in the lives of the refugees who arrive on our doorstep each day seeking shelter and assistance.  Thank you for considering our work.

  1. Help those affected by war, persecution and injustice around the world, right here in Toronto.

  2. Help us warmly welcome refugee claimants to Toronto in a family-like setting with home-cooked meals and comprehensive on-site settlement assistance.

  3. Your donation goes a long way. Matthew House receives little direct government funding but has maintained low fundraising and administrative costs of under 10% for over 15 years.

In Honour / In Memory: Make a donation in honour of a friend or loved one on-line, by phone or mail. There is a slight delay in notifications made through on-line donations. Please call us to give us the contact information for your honoree so we may send an acknowledgement card.

Through your workplace / United Way: Many workplaces have matching programs which can be a double benefit to Matthew House.  Also, while Matthew House is not a United Way regular recipient, If an employee specifically requests that their gift at their workplace for the United Way be directed to Matthew House Toronto, it will be forwarded to us.
