Let the happiness of your special day brighten the lives of thousands in need in our community!

What is Simcha Giving?

Simcha giving is when you use the opportunity of a celebration, such as a birthday or other special occasion to request a donation to Jewish Care in lieu of gifts.

So many of us receive gifts that we will never use – another box of chocolates or bubble bath and soaps.

Why not give a gift that can make a real difference to someone’s life?


How you will make a difference

There are thousands of people in our community who need support. Your donations, big or small can help:

  • Parents of children living with disability to recharge by providing quality respite care
  • Someone in crisis, including victims of domestic abuse, through counselling
  • Families at risk of homelessness with a safe, affordable and secure housing
  • Out of work individuals facing financial insecurity to find paid, secure employment
  • A family living below the poverty line to receive financial aid and longer term financial counselling.

These are just a few examples of many of our services.


How does simcha giving work?

You will receive special acknowledgement of your support and everyone who makes a gift on the occasion of your simcha will receive a special thank you and tax deductible receipt.

Spread the word
