The Children’s Aid Foundation of Ottawa (CAFO) serves the distinct purpose of supporting the children, youths and families served by the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO). Children who have shown resilience and perseverance in the face of adversity; children with talents and interests but a lack of resources to explore them; children with so much potential who could use an extra hand to keep moving forward.
What few people realize is that CAFO provides these children with the opportunities and support they need. For 25 years, CAFO has supported the important work of CASO by providing educational and enrichment opportunities to children, youth and families in the Ottawa community.
Through their Cookie Jar Fund and the Camp for Kids, Scotia Capital Leap to Learning and Dare to Dream Bursary programs, the Children’s Aid Foundation has invested over $2 million in thousands of children and youth who are served by CASO so that their educational and recreational dreams can become reality.
All of this support would not be possible without Ottawa’s caring and compassionate community, as well as the individuals, corporations and organizations that share in CAFO’s vision. Just remember, no matter the size, your donation will directly contribute to making the future of a child or young adult a little brighter.
