Where my donations go

Your support funds vital research, programs, and services that transform the lives of kids with disabilities and their families.

Support research at Holland Bloorview

The Bloorview Research Institute is focused on enhancing care, developing assistive technologies, and evaluating barriers that restrict the inclusion of children with disabilities. 

Help our families 

The Family Support Fund gives financial aid to families for special equipment like wheelchairs and walkers, transportation to and from the hospital, accommodations at the hospital’s overnight suite, and medications.

Help kids laugh

Using music and comedy, Therapeutic Clowns at Holland Bloorview help ease the pain, administering warmth and laughter to kids and families. They’re a smile-cracking distraction during certain procedures and can make therapy fun.

Let kids make music

Your gifts help us purchase musical instruments like keyboards, violins and ukuleles, giving kids the chance to be social, artistic and creative as they express themselves through sound in our music therapy programs.

Let kids paint, play and perform

The Spiral Garden helps kids’ imaginations bloom. This popular outdoor art, garden and summer camp program lets kids explore self-expression and creativity as they transform into artists, sculptors, gardeners, puppeteers, storytellers and theatre performers.

Help young adults become independent

The Independence Program (TIP) gives young adults with disabilities the chance to live away from home for three weeks. TIP workshops help them develop living skills like how to buy groceries, how to prepare meals, how to manage money, and how to safely take public transit.
