Support us

The Sharing Place does not receive any government support. We reply on the generosity of our donors and volunteers.


2.1

Donate Money

Your donations support the daily costs of the Sharing Place including the purchase of perishable food items on a weekly basis. We have good relationships with several vendors at the Ontario Food Terminal, and are able to purchase fresh food at good prices.

As a Canadian Registered Charity (132943028 RR0001) we would be pleased to offer you a tax receipt at the end of the year. As you can see from our yearly filings, we spend almost all of our money on our charitable programs.

We have several ways that you can donate:

Interac e-Transfer

Please use this email address books@sharingplace.ca for your Interac e-transfers. This account is setup to automatically received funds, so there is no need for any security questions.

In a little more detail, the procedure is:

  1. Log in to your financial institution's online or mobile banking and navigate to Interac e-Transfer Send Money. (See a list of participating financial institutions here).
  2. Select the account you would like the funds transferred from. Add or select a recipient and fill out our name (“The Sharing Place”) and e-mail address (books@sharingplace.ca).
  3. Type in the amount you are sending. For the message (if this is your first donation) type in your name, email address and mailing address, so that we are able to send you a Tax Receipt at the end of the year.

By Cheque

Mail a cheque payable to “The Sharing Place” to 624 Annette Street, Toronto, ON M6S 2C4.
