Financial Donations

Please let us know if you already included the Ottawa Bethany Hope Centre in your Will.  We would like the opportunity to thank you and invite you to become a member of our “Circle of Hope”.  This is our way of recognizing and thanking those who have made a commitment to ensure we can continue to provide important programs to pregnant and parenting youth and their children ensuring a healthy and happy start in life …. from generation to generation.  All information will be kept confidential because your privacy is important to us.

The exact wording of a bequest is very important. Please contact Karen Flynn, Planned Giving Representative at for bequest wording or more information on other types of planned gifts.

Planned Gifts are generally funded from a donor’s assets rather than current income. The easiest and most common form of planned gift is a bequest made through a Will.  The donor’s estate receives major tax benefits from a charitable bequest.

Your plan to make a gift in the future will help the Bethany Hope Centre continue its vital mission to provide programs that address the physical, material, social, educational and spiritual needs of pregnant and parenting youth and their children. 

If you are considering a bequest or other planned gift, we strongly recommend that you speak with your family before making a final decision and seek legal and financial advice from your own advisors.  Our professional staff is not able to provide specific legal or financial advice to donors. 

All gently used items can be donated
to one of the Ottawa Salvation Army
Thrift stores. We provide vouchers to
the young families to access items
there for free. Your donations help
us continue this.

New items such as the following are welcomed.

Please call 613-725-1733 if you are unsure about where to send your donation.
