About The Ottawa Mission Foundation

The Ottawa Mission Foundation is the fundraising arm of The Ottawa Mission. It was established in 2010 to allow those providing front line programs and services to focus on their work without having the additional responsibility of fundraising. The Ottawa Mission Foundation oversees direct mail campaigns, special fundraising events, planned giving, major gifts, receipting, and all donor communications. The goal of The Ottawa Mission Foundation is to ensure that the need for funds for the life-changing programs at The Ottawa Mission continue to be met.
