In-kind donations

Toujours ensemble is grateful for our community support and accepts certain in-kind donations (gifts in the form of goods or services) with gratitude. These donations allow us to pursue certain very specific initiatives linked to our mission

However, the best form of support for TE remains monetary donations..

  • They provide us with greater flexibility to respond to the changing needs of the community.
  • They allow us to purchase materials directly related to the activities offered as part of our programs and services.

How to make an in-kind donation and types of goods accepted

Toujours ensemble reserves the right to refuse in-kind donations and refer you towards another organization in the neighborhood, if necessary. We usually accept the goods listed below.

You must first contact the Toujours ensemble administration department by email : or by telephone at 514-761-7867 ext. 320. A person will assess whether your donation can fill a current need.

At all times, you must make an appointment to come and deliver your donation. This ensures
that someone that can accept the donation is present.

Toujours ensemble can produce a receipt for tax purposes only for goods that are new and for which you have an invoice.
