Donate Now Through!

The annual Children’s Fund Christmas Tree Of Hope was founded in 1976 to bring hope to kids and families struggling through the holiday season.

The campaign now serves as the primary fundraising mechanism for the Children’s Fund. Official “Christmas Tree Of Hope” trees are lit in Gore Park Hamilton and Burlington as symbols of our efforts during the Christmas season.

Children shouldn’t be burdened with things like finances. Let’s leave adulting, to the adults. The 900 CHML Christmas Tree of Hope returns for its 47th year. To date, we have raised over 6.3 million dollars to help children’s organizations.  Proof, your donation can make a difference.
