Gift in Honour or Memory

"My son Sloan celebrated his Bar Mitzvah this summer.  

Part of the ceremony is to perform a good deed and give back to the community. 

Since Sloan is a voracious reader, he decided to donate books and a portion of the money he received to The Redwood shelter. 

We value all the wonderful work they do and hope that this donation will help them continue providing their much needed service to women and children."

- Bailie (Sloan's mom), Jeff, Sloan & Morgan

"When we got engaged we felt rich with the love of family and friends and wanted for nothing. 

We asked that in lieu of gifts that people make a donation to our favourite charities. 

Everyone was thrilled to be able to support The Redwood and for us, it was a meaningful way to give back to the community in which we live."

Celebrations are the beautiful way we mark our most important moments in life with friends and family. You can include women and children leaving violence in the warmth and love of your special day by making a gift to The Redwood as a part of your celebration. You can chose to make a loving gift to The Redwood to celebrate your wedding, anniversary, birthday, retirement, or any other significant day in your life.

Alternatively, you can make a gift in honour of a friend, co-worker, or family member, and we'll send a handwritten card and personalized message to the recipient.

Donations can also be made in memory, and can be a special way to commemorate the life of a loved one.

Making a gift in celebration, or in someone's honour or memory is easy to do: you can do it online, on our secure form, or by calling (416) 533-9372 x 249. You'll receive a tax receipt for your contribution, and your donation will give women and children the promise of new lives, free from abuse.
