Donation Options for Organizations

When an organization supports Rideauwood with financial donations, sponsorship commitments and fundraising event proceeds, they are also supporting their employee community.

Donations allow the ongoing support of individuals who are struggling with substance use, behavioural addictions and mental health as well as the delivery of prevention and education training and workshops for employee communities.

We are always thankful for the generous gifts from organizations in our community.

Monthly or Quarterly Giving

Monthly or quarterly giving is a simple and convenient way for an organization to make a significant contribution to Rideauwood. Regular contributions are important because they provide a predictable level of support for specific initiatives. They can also be a more manageable way for organizations to contribute as opposed to making one, large donation.

Corporate Sponsorships

Corporate sponsors can make an enormous contribution to Rideauwood clients through their support of specific events or initiatives. If you are interested in talking about sponsorship opportunities we are keen to hear your thoughts.

Corporate Fundraising

Corporations can have a lasting impact by creating and hosting fundraising events. They are a great way to galvanize employee community support around issues that affect us all. The funds raised can go a long way to support on-going prevention, education and treatment programs at Rideauwood. We welcome your brilliant ideas.

Important Notice to Clients About Coronavirus

Our world has changed over the past few days with the accelerated response to the spread of COVID-19 in Canada and, more recently, in Ottawa with yesterday’s new directive from the  Medical Officer of Health. As of Sunday March 15 (yesterday), Ottawa Public Health is asking all residents to stay in their homes unless necessary. The Medical Officer of Health specified that this is not to discourage people from being outside, but to discourage people from going into other locations or being within 2 meters of other people that are not living in your home. The purpose of that is to reduce the speed at which the virus will spread, limiting the burden on the health care system.

 

Here at Rideauwood, we are activating the following plans to support the evolving situation:

  • All group programs are being put on hold until further notice
  • Individual counselling services, normally offered in person will be offered via telephone or OTN, (a secure videoconferencing option). As such a staff person will be in touch with you to inform you of this change.
  • If you are a youth or a young adult wanting to access the walk-in service please call us at 613-724-4881.  Your call will be redirected to the appropriate person.

 

If you are registered in an upcoming group or have an appointment and have any questions, please call us at 613-724-7881.
