Donating to Breakaway is Easy!

Through your generous donations and support, Breakaway Addiction Services can continue to offer harm-reduction focused addiction support services. We strive to  reduce stigma and discrimination through awareness and education, leverage opportunities to build enhanced client-centered, trauma informed harm reduction services.

Monthly Donor

Monthly donations help Breakaway by providing us with a more consistent source of funding, this allows us to better plan our programs and services. Additionally, monthly donations help us to lessen administrative costs as tax receipts are issued annually, thus reducing processing costs and postage. Setting up a monthly donation allows you to reduce your own personal expenses by eliminating postage and cheque processing charges. 

Breakaway's monthly donors automatically receive a copy of our Annual Report

Tribute giving

Many people choose to honour special occasions, loved ones, etc., with a donation in lieu of a gift. Donations can be made to honour milestones (e.g. birthdays, retirements, anniversaries, etc.) or in memory of a loved one.

To recognize your tribute gift, Breakaway Addictions Services will send a card acknowledging your donation to a recipient of your choice. Please contact us at (416) 537-9346 to learn more.

Planned legacy giving

Legacy gifts, or “planned gifts”, can come in many forms – all of which offer unique tax advantages to the donor while creating benefits for Breakaway Addiction Services and the communities we serve for years to come. A donation that is planned for future fulfillment allows us to carefully manage our resources for long-term projects, building greater sustainability for our organization.

There are many ways to do planned giving:

  • Bequests

  • Life Insurance

  • Securities/ Mutual Funds


If you are interested in making a legacy gift, please be sure to discuss your options with your lawyer or financial or estate planner. They will help ensure that your financial goals are considered, your tax situation is reviewed and your planned gift is tailored to your circumstances.

Breakaway will  honour and recognize donors in whatever ways reflect their preferences. We want to celebreate those who have made a long term commitment to our mission through their planned gifts, and to whom we are deeply grateful.
