Tatamagouche Centre is a space for transformation – of individuals, groups and society.

Your support helps Tatamagouche Centre continue to be a beautiful, natural place for gathering, learning, retreat, renewal and transformation for people from many walks of life and of differing means.

Donations do make a real difference!

  • To youth and leaders of youth, to ensure the next generation carries on the search for deep meaning in their lives and engagement for peace, justice and right relationship with creation.
  • To leaders of church and community who wish to develop fresh, meaningful, participatory approaches in their leadership.
  • To all seeking to build a more inclusive community, celebrating our diversity in sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, ability, race, religion and age, regardless of economic situation.
  • To anyone yearning for a sacred place to retreat, to be renewed, and to be inspired.

You may make a general donation, or specify support for a particular program that holds a special place in your heart.

In Memoriam donations:

If you’d like to make a donation in memory of someone please provide us with the following information:

  • The name of the deceased
  • The name and address of the person to whom you would like an acknowledgment to be sent.
  • The relationship of the deceased to the recipient of the acknowledgement letter.

We will send a letter on your behalf indicating a donation was made in memory of the deceased person.

In Celebration donations:

If you are celebrating a special occasion (birthday, wedding, new job, anniversary, retirement) but don’t really need any more presents, gift cards or ill fitting sweaters, consider inviting your friends and family to make a donation, in lieu of gifts, to a cause you care about.

Or, if you would like to celebrate someone’s special occasion (new baby, graduation, new home, anniversary …) or to honour someone who has made an impact in your life, you may make a financial donation and add a note in the “Special Designation” field on our secure online donation form, providing us with the name and address of your “honouree”. We will send a notice of your thoughtful gesture, along with a one-line message you’d like us to include.

If you’d like to make a donation as a meaningful gift to a group of people, simply send us a lump sum donation, a list of recipients who should receive acknowledgement and any one-line special message you would like us to include and we will send acknowledgement cards to your gift recipients.

Charitable tax receipts will be issued for any donation of $20 or higher.
