Our Story 

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.    


Our mission is to educate and inspire philanthropic action that will help to eliminate barriers for children, youth and families in our communities of care.

We are guided by our values to embrace inclusivity, be respectful in all we do, ensure transparency and accountability, and promote collaboration and innovation.

Will you join us to create a more equitable world?
