Raise money for The Lighthouse for Grieving Children

Adjusting to life after a death is hard to understand, impossible to imagine. With the help of donations like yours, the safe space at Lighthouse gives children and their families the security to express themselves, to have their feelings accepted, validated and to build hope for their future.

"The thought, content and activities put together at Lighthouse along with the dedicated space and time have been instrumental in assisting our family through an extremely difficult loss. Had it not been for Lighthouse, our family would be an unresolved, unimaginable mess." – Rob. 

For 20 years, The Lighthouse has been the only agency in the GTA that offers vital services at no cost to families. We are 95% self funded so rely on the generosity of our community. Please consider making a donation to help Lighthouse. In 2018, over 350 participants attended our groups, at a cost of $1700 per participant each year, fundraising is essential.  Ask family and friends to support you on your pledge page.

Scroll down to see the fundraising incentives: win a Royal Caribbean Cruiseor head to the movies at Film.Ca .  

This year, we ask every registrant to support us by raising as much as they can to their online pledge page.
