FRIENDS & SUPPORTERS

INDIVIDUAL DONORS

We gratefully acknowledge the support of hundreds of caring individuals who have supported us with donations throughout the year. Our largest level of support comes from individual donors. This includes those who sponsored Matthew House team members in the Scotiabank Charity Challenge run, sponsored Matthew House summer Camp attendees and made donations at our  Matthew House annual gala. Every one of these donations helped us to meet our budget target each year. Thank you!

 

MONTHLY & MULTI-YEAR DONORS

We are especially grateful for those individuals and organizations who commit to ongoing monthly or multi-year donations. This truly provides us with a bedrock of support which enables us to function more effectively as an organization and create longer-term, strategic plans. Thank you!

 

CHURCHES & FAITH BASED ORGANIZATIONS

The support of churches and faith-based organizations was an essential part of making Matthew House a reality in 1998 and has played an integral role in sustaining our work every year since. We are grateful to have so many walk faithfully with us in fulfilling our ministry to “welcome the stranger”. Thank you!

We are very appreciative of the support we have received from a number of public and private foundations, some of which are mentioned below:

  • The Grocery Foundation

GREENSIDES AVENUE & SHIRLEY STREET TRANSITION HOUSES

Thanks to generous capital gifts from private donors (who wish to remain anonymous) and The Grocery Foundation, we purchased our second and third homes on Shirley Street and Greensides Avenue. 


 

SHARED KITCHEN FACILITY AND FEEDING PROGRAM   

HEARTFELT THANKS TO THE GROCERY FOUNDATION!

A large grant from The Grocery Foundation enabled us to establish a shared kitchen facility at our Greensides Avenue Transition House as well as our refugee feeding program. This kitchen is integral to supporting the most vulnerable refugees passing through the doors of Matthew House including; young single moms and their children, unaccompanied minors and young families. We thank The Grocery Foundation for their commitment to providing nourishment to needy children and a sense of belonging and community to their parents and caregivers.
