Monthly Giving

In Canada there is no government funding designated for bereavement care, yet it is well documented that unresolved grief can lead to an array of health concerns including; anxiety, depression, addiction, and more.

For every loss, it is estimated that at least five people will be significantly impacted, yet very few have access to adequate long-term supports. 

Every donation that you give to the Camp Kerry Society helps us to provide support to children, youth, individuals and families impacted by loss and to those living with a serious illness. As a result of people like you, lives are being transformed across Canada.

By becoming a sustaining partner through Giving Monthly donations you can help us provide hope and support life after loss.
