Other Types of Donations

Any monetary donations, online or by mail, are always put to good use in the most effective way possible. We use our funds to purchase food and other items, like toiletries, in bulk to make your donation go further and help even more people.

Making an online donation is simple if you have a credit card – our donation page will walk you through it. Online donations qualify for an instant charitable tax receipt.


If you have any questions or concerns about making a donation, or would like to inquire about what qualifies for a charitable donation tax receipt, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone at 613-234-1155 or email at [javascript protected email address].

Due to a lack of space at The Ottawa Mission, we regret that we cannot accept the donation of any household items, such as appliances or furniture.
