Donate

Each year Victim Services Toronto gives close to 20,000 children, adults, and families affected by violence and tragedy the tools and resources they need to cope with the effects of trauma. Our work is possible because of the generosity of our supporters, who help us move victims from crisis to confidence.

 

Whether you are a longtime supporter of Victim Services Toronto or you are donating for the first time, we appreciate your encouragement on behalf of the individuals, families and communities we serve. Together, we provide services to real people in real crisis.

Donor Bill of Rights

We support the Donor Bill of Rights.

Philanthropy is based on voluntary action for the common good. It is a tradition of giving and sharing that is primary to the quality of life. To assure that philanthropy merits the respect and trust of the general public, and that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in the not-for-profit organizations and causes they are asked to support, we declare that all donors have these rights:

      1. To be informed of the organization’s mission, of the way the organization intends to use donated resources, and of its capacity to use donations effectively for their intended purposes.
      2. To be informed of the identity of those serving on the organization’s governing board, and to expect the board to exercise prudent judgment in its stewardship responsibilities.
      3. To have access to the organization’s most recent financial statements.
      4. To be assured their gifts will be used for the purposes for which they were given.
      5. To receive appropriate acknowledgment and recognition.
      6. To be assured that information about their donations is handled with respect and with confidentiality to the extent provided by law.
      7. To expect that all relationships with individuals representing organizations of interest to the donor will be professional in nature.
      8. To be informed whether those seeking donations are volunteers, employees of the organization or hired solicitors.
      9. To have the opportunity for their names to be deleted from mailing lists that an organization may intend to share.
      10. To feel free to ask questions when making a donation and to receive prompt, truthful and forthright answers.

The Donor Bill of Rights was created by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), the Association for Healthcare Philanthropy (AHP), the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE), and the Giving Institute: Leading Consultants to Non-Profits. It has been endorsed by numerous organizations.
