We are fortunate to be supported by the resources of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. With that, 100% of our programming comes from the generosity of our community: through grants, donations and third party fundraisers. This also means that any funds we receive can be earmarked for a particular area of interest for donors.
