Our Clubs

Na'amat in Toronto has a rich foundation steeped in the tradition of working women and volunteers going back to the days when we were known as Pioneer Women. The daughters and granddaughters of the women of clubs Avodah, Borochov Women, Chadera, Club One, Dimona, Eilat, Galila, Golda Meir, Hanita, Havah, Independent Women, Kinnereth, Omna, Rachel and Shalom have followed in their footsteps – transferring their passion for the women and children of Israel to the younger generations we see today.

We are also very fortunate to be able to attract new members as well whose families may not have been involved as “Pioneer Women”. These women have chosen Na'amat as to be part of their philanthropic future and we are thrilled to welcome them into our vibrant sisterhood.

Toronto Campaigns and Fundraisers

School Supplies for Kids

school-suppliesSchool Supplies for Kids aims to equip children who are being sheltered in domestic violence centres in Toronto with school supplies, educational material and personal effects.

It is Na’amat’s hope that every school age child entering a domestic violence shelter in the Metro Toronto area can be offered a complete set of school supplies including backpacks, lunch boxes, notebooks, pens, pencils, markers, highlighters, erasers, glue sticks, binders, folders, pencil cases, and as many other necessary school items as possible, prior to the start of the school year.

In 2018, we received over 1000 backpack requests and requests for 475 "Mom toiletry bags" from 12 local shelters. In order to ensure that each child gets a complete set of school supplies we need your help. Please consider making a financial donation that will be used to purchase these important items or help us with a donation of items we can use to put in the backpacks.  Click here to read a thank-you letter from one of the shelters.


Donations over $18.00 are tax-deductable and will receive a receipt. It’s easy to make a donation. Call the Na’amat office at 416-636-5425 and ask that your donation be directed to the School Supplies for Kids project.

Dollars for David


The Dollars for David campaign is an annual Chanukah tradition for Na’amat Canada Toronto. This fundraising project helps to provide toys, books, games and other holiday treats to the needy children in our Na’amat Israel facilities. Without the help of our loyal donors, many of these young children might have to endure disappointment at Chanukah without treats and toys.

Hundreds of Toronto area school children have jumped on the Dollars for David bandwagon by giving tzedakah, to honour their teachers. Click here to make your donation to the Dollars for David campaign, at any time of the year.

To make a donation now, click here or call our office at 416-636-5425. To see a copy of the letter requesting your donation, click here.

Spiritual Adopt-a-Child

adopt-a-childOur Spiritual Adopt-a-Child programme provides financial and emotional support for children in Israel, from newborn babies to university graduates.

When you spiritually Adopt-a-Child, you provide the funds necessary to send a child in Israel to one of our world renowned Na’amat Daycare Centres, where the young ones are fed three hot meals a day and are cherished and nurtured by our specially trained staff.

Once children move out of our Daycares, we still watch out for them. Not every student is able to succeed in the regular school system. For these “last chance” children, we offer our Technological and Boarding High Schools to help them make their way through these new educational challenges. With your help, Na’amat students improve their self-esteem.... and learn to succeed on their own.

We are still there to lend a hand even when our children graduate from High School. Some of the lucky ones find themselves at university but are unable to afford the high cost of tuition. Na’amat steps in by offering a series of post-secondary scholarships to ease the financial burden of obtaining a higher education.
