Our Cause
FUNDRAISING GOAL : $5000

Easter Seals Ontario provides programs and services to children and youth with physical disabilities across Ontario to help them achieve greater independence, accessibility and integration.

 

Our programs and services include:

 

Financial Assistance

 

We provide financial assistance of up to $3,000 per year, per child, to help purchase essential mobility equipment such as wheelchair, walkers, ramps or lifts and communication aids.

 

Summer Camp

 

We own and operate two fully accessible summer camps and offer children and youth overnight summer camp experiences. Our camping programs give kids the opportunity to stay away from home and experience a wide range of fully accessible activities, such as a high ropes course, indoor climbing wall, sailing, kayaking, swimming, white-water rafting and so much more.

 

Recreational Choices Funding Program

 

For children who are unable to attend Easter Seals camp, we offer up to $250 per year for them to attend an alternate summer recreational activity of their choosing such as art classes.

 

 

You can help us reach our goal in three different ways:

OUR MISSION

For more than 90 years, Easter Seals Ontario has played an important role in providing support for children with physical disabilities to help them achieve greater independence, accessibility and integration.

 

Our core programs include direct financial assistance, camping, recreational choices and educational scholarships.

 

It can cost families up to an additional $40,000 a year to care for a child with a severe disability. Expenses can include mobility equipment like wheelchairs and walkers, communication devices, home renovations, special schooling, adapted vehicles and special transportation, just to name a few. Easter Seals’ financial assistance provides funding where government and insurance resources leave off, filling an important gap. 

 

Our ability to provide assistance is based entirely on the generosity of donations from individuals, groups, corporations and foundations. Thanks to our generous donors, we continue to offer programs that allow youth with physical disabilities to experience freedom, independence and a sense of accomplishment. Together, we make a difference for kids in the community who need our help.
