Donating is the act of gift giving.

Typically giving for charitable purposes and/or to benefit a cause.

Peaks for Change Foundation is a charitable organization that wants to benefit many causes.

Our current principal cause is Mental Health, benefiting CAMH (Center for Addiction and Mental Health). Mental illnesses can take many forms, just as physical illnesses do. There still is a huge stigma associated with Mental Health and still feared and misunderstood by many people. Our goal is to help to #endstigma, so that the fear will disappear as people learn more.

Once we have completed our fundraising in support of CAMH we will be supporting medical, life-saving missions abroad.
