thank you

Thank you for your commitment and partnership.  We are so grateful for the many ways you support us — with finances, food, socks and shoes, your skills, your care and prayers. It all has and continues to make a difference.

financial support

ARK depends on donations from many generous individuals, churches and various community groups in our area – we receive no government funding.  We invite you to be part of our community by committing to support ARK’s core funding needs in the following ways:

By giving monthly or with a one-time donation:
Donations of $20 or more will be receipted annually.
You can do so by mailing a cheque (payable to Ark) or online: DONATE NOW

By joining us for the Coldest Night of the Year, our yearly fundraiser. It is a 5 kilometre walk on February 24th, 2024 to raise money for Ark as we seek to support those who experience life on the margins.

If you have any questions about the process, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
