Annual General Meeting (Virtual) - Monday, October 4, 2021 - 6:00pm
Donate Now – Aphasia Institute

Help us give hope to people with aphasia and their families. Together we can remove barriers to living successfully with aphasia.

On Sunday, July 25, 2021, take a short time out of your day to talk with family or friends in person or on the phone, while you walk or roll in or near your home. Join us – and encourage others to join us – in appreciation of the importance of talk and conversation in our daily lives.

General Fund

Making a donation to our General Fund is a great way for your donation to be used where it is needed most.

Monthly Donation

A monthly donation is a great way to give. It provides an easy, recurring structure for your budget and allows us to plan ahead, knowing we have loyal, recurring donors.

In Honour

Special occasions are a good opportunity to honour those you love. The best way to commemorate an occasion is to make a donation in honour of a loved one.

Securities & Mutual Funds

Donating securities and mutual funds is the most efficient way to give and CanadaHelps makes it easy to do so.

In Memory

Paying tribute to loved ones who have passed on is a truly meaningful way to honour their memory.

What Your Donations Support

Direct Services

The Aphasia Institute has created over 30 programs that reduce communication barriers and reveal the intelligent and competent person that aphasia can often mask. Your generous donation helps ensure that no one is turned away for an inability to pay for our programs by subsidizing the fees our clients pay. (At left is our aphasia-friendly registration form, showing the many programs our clients find essential to their re-engagement in daily life.)

Training & Education

The Aphasia Institute is renowned for its communication training to health care professionals in Toronto, throughout the province of Ontario, across Canada, and around the world. With your support, we can continue to create and develop innovative training materials and solutions to meet the changing needs of people living with aphasia and their families.

Research & Development

The relationship between our clients, our volunteers, and our research is uniquely reciprocal. Our research informs us how to best respond to our clients’ changing needs, while our client and volunteer input into our research informs the development of our products and services. In turn, our clients and other people with aphasia and their families benefit from these products and services, locally, nationally, and internationally.

"I’ve been working at the Aphasia Institute since early 2007 and I love my job. It's incredibly rewarding to work in a collaborative environment where I get to be part of life-changing work for people living with aphasia and the healthcare providers who serve them. I feel affirmed, encouraged and supported as we work together on innovative and dynamic initiatives that accomplish our mission and vision in new, creative and resourceful ways."
