Who we are

Peel Children’s Aid Foundation was established in 2003 to raise funds to support innovative and urgently needed programs and services for children, youth and families in our community. These programs receive little to no government-funding. We hope to inspire you to support programs that give children and youth in our community the chance to experience nurturing childhoods, equal opportunity to education, and future success.    


Will you help to break down the barriers that keep children and youth from lives of joy and purpose. Will you be a game-changer?

How to help

From donating to volunteering, learn more about the different ways you can help make a difference for children and youth in and from care.

Peel Children’s Aid Foundation is a charity that enriches the core work of Peel Children’s Aid Society with vitally-needed additional services essential to long-term outcomes and building resilient communities.

​The Foundation is locally based and community driven, which allows us to focus specifically on supporting the needs of children and youth through specialized programs and family relief funding such as diapers, clothing, and grocery gift cards.

Ethical storytelling can be tricky. On the one hand, we have a lot of young people who want the opportunity to tell their story and say thank you. They tell us that finding and using their voice is an important part of working through the impact of their experiences on their young lives.

On the other hand, we need to be sure we are not exploiting these young people or their stories. We want to ensure they understand the impact of putting their stories out into the world. We want to ensure the 'helpers' are not all white-presenting and those being 'helped' people of colour - because that upholds the 'white-saviour' narrative.

We are deeply grateful to the incredible young people who wanted to share their story. They are inspirational. They are awesome! We also wanted to introduce our new CEO Maryann Kerr, to an audience of donors and sponsors as our new staff leader. For Maryann, it was important to include our longtime volunteer leader E. Craig Trenholm, who has been instrumental in ogranizing an amazing event for Peel Children's Aid Foundation for more than fifteen years. 💙

We hope you will consider joining us as sponsors for be BE BOLD 2024.
Save the date: November 7th, 2024. ✨️

For 2023, please consider joining our Holiday Whishes for All campaign here ❤️🎁:

P.S. We are grateful to Paul Jacob and 903 Productions for their professionalism, commitment, creativity and passion for this work. We look forward to working with you again.🥰
