Tribute Gifts

Honor a lost loved one, recognize someone special or commemorate a milestone by making a special gift in their name that will help our community.

The life you’ve built says a lot about you – the impact you’ve made, your dreams for the future, your values. A legacy gift will show your support and dedication to ending chronic homelessness in the city of Toronto. Leaving a gift to Homes First in your Will may be the most impactful gift you could ever give.

Please email donate@homesfirst.on.ca to discuss and coordinate your gift.
