Since the opening of McKim House in 2005, L'Arche Saint John has achieved nearly half of its annual funding through the generosity of donors and community supporters and the fundraising efforts of dozens of volunteers.

We are a Registered Charity and gratefully receive donations of any size, including gifts in-kind. Such contributions enable us to provide one-on-one attention and support; educational opportunities that draw forth people’s gifts; medical and dental care, transportation, and other basic needs for the members of McKim House – as well as a place of belonging for all those who come to find friendship here.

Members of L’Arche Saint John are happy to provide informational presentations to a variety of groups including local businesses, service clubs, and churches wanting to learn more. 

Donating Securities

Donating public securities and mutual funds is the most tax-smart way to make donations in Canada. When a Canadian gives a gift of a security or mutual fund that's increased in value since its purchase, they avoid the capital gains tax. This means you benefit from a tax receipt for the full value of the security or mutual fund!

We use CanadaHelps to make it easy and seamless to make your donation. Once the transfer is complete, CanadaHelps will notify you via e-mail and send you a tax receipt for the value of your donation. They will also disburse the funds to the charity you've chosen, less they low, non-commerical administration fee.
