Gifts of Hope banner


The Salvation Army's 'Gifts of Hope' program provides an unique opportunity for ethical giving. Purchasing a 'Gift of Hope' can make a significant and lasting difference in the lives of many who live in low-income countries throughout the world.  

Holidays and family celebrations often provide opportunities to exchange gifts as an expression of our love and affection for special people in our lives. Choosing the right gift is always a challenge! As an alternative to, or extension of your gift giving tradition, a tax-deductible "Gift of Hope" can be given to honour a loved one at a special occasion or in memory of a loved one who has passed away.  Once your gift has been processed, you will receive a tax-deductible receipt and be given an opportunity to secure a gift enclosure card suitable for the occasion.

The gift items in our on-line Gifts of Hope Catalogue have been carefully chosen to complement the international work of The Salvation Army in the over 130 countries in which it operates. Each 'Gift of Hope' contributes to the Army's strategic priorities in order to support and facilitate holistic and sustainable integrated projects.

Please join us in 'making a world of difference' one gift at a time!

On behalf of the people whose live you have changed, we thank you for your heartfelt generosity.
