Help provide shelter, warmth and dignity to families who have lost their homes and possessions following a natural disaster, conflict or other humanitarian crisis. ShelterBox helps some of the world's most vulnerable people. Your gift will help us provide them with the tools they need to survive and begin rebuilding their lives.
ShelterBox is committed to doing everything we can for the families devastated by the earthquake in Nepal. When a major disaster, such as the earthquake in Nepal occurs, we already have our aid on the ground before many new donations are received. While we cannot, therefore, accept donations specifically for the Nepal Crisis, your donation ensures that we are ready to help families in desperate need as soon as disaster strikes.
At this time, ShelterBox Canada will not be submitting donations for matching to the Canadian Government. In order for organizations to participate in matching, they must guarantee that all money claimed will be used in Nepal. For ShelterBox to continue to be able to provide aid anywhere in the world immediately when it is needed, we cannot guarantee that all funds raised will be needed or spent in Nepal at this time.
If you are sponsoring a ShelterBox ($1200) or a portion of a ShelterBox, your box number will allow you to track its final destination. Please indicate the box name that you would like listed on our website by selecting one of the following:
When you make a gift in memory or in honour of someone, a special note is sent to the family or honoree to let them know about your gift.
