Georgetown Bread Basket

Donate Money

The Georgetown Bread Basket is a registered charity operated entirely by volunteers and as a result, our administrative costs are very low. This means that the bulk of your food and monetary donations are being used to provide food to our community members in need. Your donations enable us to buy shelf stable foods, fresh meat, produce and dairy products, as well as support a milk and formula voucher program to enhance the nutritional needs of our clients and their children.

A charitable tax receipt will be issued for donations with a monetary value of $10 or greater. Please provide your full name and full mailing address with your donation so that a receipt can be issued.  We endeavour to mail out receipts for donations by cheque, cash, e-transfer and PayPal by the end of the following month.

The following are ways that you can support financially: Cheque, E-Transfer, PayPal, Canada Helps, Workplace. Specific instructions for donating are below:
