Make a one-time or monthly gift
There were 2,434 female victims of intimate partner violence in Nova Scotia in 2021. Many women do not report for a variety of barriers and safety concerns and many cannot escape the situation because they have no place to go. Alice House is the only second-stage housing organization in Halifax Regional Municipality. Your donation is guaranteed to aid us in connecting a family to safe housing.
Donate securities or mutual funds that have appreciated in value, rather than cash, and eliminate the capital gains tax. It’s the most cost-effective way to give: Alice House will receive a larger gift and you’ll benefit from a larger tax credit.
Donate essential items
Donations of essential items play a crucial role in helping women and children create new homes and rebuild their lives. Many survivors are forced to leave behind their personal belongings when they flee to safety. Help provide them with comfort and security.
Start a fundraiser
We're fortunate to receive donations from individuals and groups who organize events and fundraising campaigns on our behalf. It takes just a few minutes to create a free fundraiser through CanadaHelps to honour someone you love, celebrate your birthday or wedding, or simply challenge yourself and your community, while raising money for women and children in need.
