As a not-for-profit, community based organization, Meals on Wheels relies on the support of community-minded organizations and individuals, businesses, and a committed volunteer network to be able to provide regular nutritional support to those who need this type of service.
We organize regular fundraising initiatives, but without the monetary donations and volunteer assistance we receive from caring community members, we would not be able to offer meals at a rate that would be affordable to most of our clients.
Meals on Wheels of Fredericton Inc is a member agency of the United Way/ Centraide (Central N.B.) Inc. As such, we are eligible to apply for financial support for our programs and to receive any donated funds designated for us through the United Way donor option program, which allows donors to specify the agencies they want to receive their donation.
How our funds are spent
Meals on Wheels of Fredericton Inc. is a not-for-profit organization. All monies that come in through donations, fundraising initiatives and meal fees are used to cover the costs of purchasing meals from our two vendors, employing four staff members to run our programs, maintaining / operating an office, volunteer support / recognition, and promotion / public relations initiatives.
We are grateful to those who have given us their support in the past, and we invite those who may be thinking about supporting us in the future to consider the following options;
- A financial donation to assist with daily operational activities
- Organizing a fund raising event on our behalf (Casual Days, Bake/Yard Sales, etc)
- An in-kind donation of a product or service
- Supporting our fund raising events
Should you wish to make a donation, you can do so by cash, cheque or credit card (Visa and MasterCard) or the quick and easy method of an on-line donation through CanadaHelps.org.
