DONATING TO NELSON COMMUNITY SERVICES
Your donation allows us to reach so many more families, individuals, and youth and offer them real life-enhancing (and sometimes lifesaving) supports.
We are a registered charity under the federal Charities Act. All donations and bequests will be formally acknowledged in writing to the donor, and all donations over $20.00 will be offered a tax receipt.
To mark 50 years of service to families, youth & individuals in the community, we’ve launched a series of short films. Each short film in the Healing Connections series showcases a program & the work of our organization as told through the powerful stories of those who have accessed our services.

WHEN MAKING A DONATION, YOU CAN SPECIFY WHICH FUND YOU WISH TO SUPPORT:
CLIENT SUPPORT FUND
This fund will be used to assist clients to participate in counselling, outreach, and support programs and will provide help with basic needs and items that will improve their overall well-being.
NELSON STREET OUTREACH
The Street Outreach Team supports some of our most vulnerable citizens. Donation funds provide operational and programming assistance as well as emergency supplies.
CICADA PLACE FUND
Youth coming to Cicada Place often have very few resources to support their transition to living independently. There are times when some youth struggle to obtain the basic necessities of life. Monetary donations made to Cicada Place can make an impactful difference.
AIMEE BEAULIEU TRANSITION HOUSE FUND
This Fund will be used to support women and their dependent children accessing services from Aimee Beaulieu Transition House Program and to assist with their emergency needs.
Leaving a Legacy…
is very simple, as simple as planning to make a gift. Planned gifts are generally funded from accumulated resources or assets, rather than income.
The most common Planned Gift received by the NCS is a Bequest.
The tax benefit from a Bequest accrues to the donor’s estate.
You can designate your Legacy Gift to our three noted funds that encompass all the various
programs and expenses of Nelson Community Services — the possibilities are abundant and rich with the excitement of giving!
