Support a great cause.

According to the Canadian Cancer Society, one in every two Canadians will get cancer in their lifetime. That’s a staggering number – and one that shows us that what we do is more important than ever. You can help us provide childcare to the families who need us the most. Here’s how.

Your help makes a difference

It costs about $7,000 a year to deliver the Nanny Angel program to one family. This includes recruiting, training, screening and matching volunteers to families, paying for transportation to and from visits, specialized training in grief and bereavement to our volunteers, and buying supplies for our Nanny Angels to use with kids and parents.

While our signature Angels and Heroes event raised over $700,000 this year, the demand for our services is always growing, and we don’t want to turn anyone away. We rely on donations, sponsorships and fundraising to provide childcare to moms with cancer – and help vulnerable children.

Here’s how you can help:

Ways to give

Your donations help us provide relief childcare to families facing cancer. They support the recruitment and training of our volunteer Nanny Angels.

Every dollar makes a difference – and your donation is 100% tax deductible. Please give what you can.

Send a cheque

If you prefer to send your donation by mail, please send it to:
Nanny Angel Network
1000 Sheppard Avenue West, Suite 100
Toronto, Ontario M3H 2T6

Call us

Or if you prefer to give us your credit card number over the phone, please call us at 416-730-0025, ext. 0.

What better way to say “I love you” to someone you care about than by helping moms with cancer take care of their own children? No matter what the occasion, supporting a family in need is a thoughtful gift that makes a real difference.

Fill someone’s heart on Valentine’s Day

This February, honour someone special in your life with a heart-warming gift – a donation that helps families facing cancer get through a difficult time.

Celebrate the moms in your life

This Mother’s Day, a donation to the Nanny Angel Network is a warm, meaningful way to pay tribute to your mom, grandma, sister, aunt or friend.

As part of your next celebration – whether it’s a wedding, anniversary, birthday, or bar or bat mitzvah – make the gift giving more meaningful by asking that people make a donation to the Nanny Angel Network instead of bringing gifts. Not only is it a great way to raise money for a great cause, it opens people’s eyes to the good work we do so they can tell people about our organization, or even support us again in the future.

And if you’re attending a celebration as a guest, a donation to NAN makes the perfect gift. It’s warm, meaningful – and we guarantee, it will always fit.

The best kind of gift is one that keeps on giving. Consider signing up to be a monthly donor – we can set you up with an automatic donation for whatever amount you prefer. Even small monthly amounts add up – and can make a big difference to moms who need to rest and recover, and kids who need help coping with their mother’s illness.

Plus, as a monthly donor, you’ll be able to see exactly how your gift is helping families, with regular updates on NAN families and the Nanny Angels who support them.

Help the Nanny Angel Network lessen the impact of cancer on families by making a donation to Renee’s Angel Book Drive. When you make a donation, the funds will be used to provide books to children whose mother has or has died from cancer. These age appropriate books about cancer, grief and loss will be given to the children by their Nanny Angel – a specially trained volunteer who visits the family weekly to provide relief childcare support for their mom.

Planned giving lets you leave a lasting legacy for families living with cancer. And not only will your gift make a difference in several lives, it’s a smart way to combine your personal giving goals with tax savings. There are three ways to leave a legacy:

Leave a bequest in your will

A bequest to the Nanny Angel Network helps us provide women with the help they need – and it can lower taxes for your heirs. The size of your estate doesn’t matter – whatever amount you are able to leave will help mothers with cancer get dependable care for their kids. You can change the terms of your planned gift at any time.

To find out more about planned giving, call us at 416-730-0025, ext. 6.

Give a gift of securities

Help NAN families by donating publicly traded securities. Not only will you be making a difference to families, giving the gift of stocks or bonds can minimize your income tax.

To find out more about this option, call us at 416-730-0025, ext. 6.

Make a gift of property

Real estate, jewellery or art are also options that can help us fund our work with families facing cancer. Depending on your wishes and the specific type of item donated, NAN may retain the gift or sell it and use the proceeds to support our mission.

A charitable tax receipt will be issued for the fair market value on the date the gift is transferred. Two independent qualified appraisers will determine the value of the item, and you will receive a tax receipt based on the appraised fair market value.

To find out more or discuss your gift in confidence, please call us at 416-730-0025, ext. 6.

Our gala Angels & Heroes celebrates the impact that Nanny Angel volunteers and partners have created for the families and communities we serve. This celebration recognizes our Angels – the volunteers, donors, and supporters who have given life to NAN – and our Heroes – the mothers who inspire us with their strength and courage.

Save the Date!

Nanny Angel Network’s Angels & Heroes Gala will be returning for a fourth year on May 16th, 2019.

The 2018 Angels & Heroes Gala raised over $700,000 which went directly toward providing free, specialized, in-home childcare for mothers who have been diagnosed with cancer, are in palliative care, and for families requiring support during the bereavement period.

For sponsorship information and any other inquiries related to the event, please contact Donna Harris at gala@nannyangelnetwork.com, or by phone at 416-730-0025.

Ready to roll up your sleeves for a great cause? We’re happy to harness the enthusiasm and hard work of our supporters. If you would like to create a fundraising campaign or event in support of NAN families, we thank you in advance – and will do everything we can to help.

Thinking about an event? Get in touch with us at 416-730-0025, ext. 6.

Almost half of Nanny Angel Network’s donations come from corporations. We value these partnerships – and our partners’ desire to help women and children across the GTA.

Making a corporate donation or becoming an event sponsor is an investment in women and their families – and a strong, positive statement about your company values and your commitment to giving back to the communities you serve.

We will work with you to tailor the partnership to align with your giving criteria – and maximize the good we can do together by providing vital childcare to moms facing cancer.

If you would like to become a corporate donor or wish to discuss sponsorship opportunities, please call us at 416-730-0025, ext. 6.
