Your donations keep our doors open

You can donate online through CanadaHelps, a registered charity that makes giving simple.  Regular, predictable donations to the Barbra Schlifer Clinic will help us guarantee women and gender diverse people free legal, counselling and interpretation services.

Help build a better tomorrow, today by making your gift monthly.

Donate Now

Approximately 6% of the Clinic’s expenses go toward our fundraising initiatives; we are lean and are committed to using the funds we raise efficiently to serve as many women and gender diverse people as possible. We are committed to transparency. For more detailed information on how we use the funds you generously donate, please either view our Audited Financial Statement or visit our page on the Canada Revenue Agency site.


The Clinic is also committed to donor privacy. We embrace best practices, including the principles of the Canadian Standards Association Model Code for the Protection of Personal Information. Our relationship with you is important to us. We collect, use or disclose your personal information only with your permission. For more information, please review our Donor Privacy Policy.

Planned Giving

When you choose to make a charitable gift, you’ve considered the importance of a life free from violence for future generations of women and gender diverse people and children.  We would be pleased to work with you and your advisors to arrange a planned gift that best suits your goals.

Leave a Legacy

More than just a legal document to distribute your personal assets, a Will is also a powerful tool to make change in the world. By leaving a gift to Barbra Schlifer Clinic in your Will, you can make a bigger contribution than you thought possible. The truth is, just a small percentage of your estate left to charity can have a big impact, while still leaving the majority for loved ones.

Other Ways to Give

Donate by Phone or Mail

To make a donation by mail, please complete our donation form and return it with payment.  Income tax receipts will be issued with every donation over $10 dollars.

Donate a Car

The Clinic partners with Donate A Car Canada so that you know that your previously loved and owned vehicle is recycled or sold responsibly. Choose Donate A Car Canada and receive a charitable tax receipt from the Clinic within 45 days!

In-Kind Donations

In-kind donations are treated differently than cash donations by Revenue Canada. Such donations require that there be no cost involved for the clinic. A charitable tax receipt is issued after the value of the gift has been independently determined.

Items we have received in the past include gifts of art, items donated by corporations, vacation properties for loan, services and gift certificates.
