The Ottawa Mission’s funding needs are managed by The Ottawa Mission Foundation. It is the Foundation, established in 2010, that focuses on raising money for the organization so shelter staff providing front-line programs and services can focus on helping people in need.

As registered Canadian charities, The Ottawa Mission and The Ottawa Mission Foundation value transparency. By keeping administrative costs low and operating services like our Hospice (which saves the healthcare system an estimated $50,000 per person), The Ottawa Mission makes sure your valuable contributions help people in need as well as the community at large.
