MAKE A DONATION
Your Contribution Will Make A Difference!
We have been asked by many caring folks and corporations in SF about how they can help our efforts financially.
We are happy to announce that our SFWU Committee is ready now to provide charitable tax receipts through the cooperation between Canada Helps and the Perth and District Community Foundation.
Please follow the Donate Now button to the Canada Helps website. Once there, under the heading, "Apply your donation to a fund setup by this charity", choose Smiths Falls Welcomes Ukraine.
For more detailed instructions on how to donate to SFWU through Canada Helps, click here for a PDF
Donations can also be made via etransfer, to our email address: email@example.com, however, this method does not include a charitable tax receipt.
Your money donations will stay in Smiths Falls and go directly to the purchase of airplane tickets for displaced Ukrainian individuals or families whom we have contact with, that have moved through their visa process, and will come to our Town, and will be supported by us and settle in with a local Host Family. Your donations will also be earmarked to help with the initial costs associated with the early inevitable expenses of making sure our new neighbours have needed essentials to begin their new life here among us.
We are not looking for donated items and goods, and we have no manner of storing such items.
We ask that local service clubs, schools and church groups be aware that the Smiths Falls Welcomes Ukraine Committee is here and active. We are your most impactful way to help Ukrainians. If you wish to hold your own fundraising efforts, we can receive your funds and use them directly to helping settle displaced families from the war in the Ukraine, right here in Smiths Falls.
We hope that our community will see many fundraising efforts. On our Facebook page you will see a thank you to the efforts of Susan Richards of Creative Computing who has created Support Ukraine “buttons” and donated monies from their sale to our cause. This is a great idea and just an example of the generous and helping spirit we have here in SF.
