Adopt a Mother
Adopt a Mother
It costs only $47/month to sponsor the education of a mother such as Aklima (left). With a charitable tax deduction, the cost to Canadians is about $31/ month, depending upon where you live in Canada and your situation (see note at the bottom of this page). If you prefer to make one payment of $564 for the year, please go to the ‘donate’ button at bottom of this page.
Your adopted mother will teach a group of at least five children such as Meem and Jakia (below), so your donation actually educates children from several families.
Your adopted mother will send letters and photos to you – as well as the occasional video clip – on a regular basis throughout the year.
If you live in the Toronto area, Christine, of Christine’s Fitness will also give you a free membership for 3 months.

It’s a good idea to get this information from your financial advisor, but in Ontario, for instance, you receive a 20.5% tax deduction for your first $200 contribution. For the amount over $200, the tax deduction is 40.16%. You need to check with your accountant respecting your personal situation and because these non-refundable tax rebates combine federal and provincial tax credit, the amount varies depending on in which province one lives.
So, if you live in Ontario and have claimed no other contributions to registered charities, Adopting a Mother will cost only about $31/ month and Adopting a Child will actually cost about $19/ month. But do check with your financial advisor to get the exact number for your situation.
