Join Our Community of Anxiety Advocates
Transforming Lives, One Month at a Time
Why donate monthly?
Millions of Canadians rely on us for education and relief in the management of their anxiety. Becoming an Anxiety Advocate is the best way to support those in need of proven coping tools and mental health support.
We’re on a mission to make mental health care more accessible for all so that less Canadians need to pay out-of-pocket for the treatment they deserve, and a monthly gift can make a significant impact. Just $13 per month adds up to help fund critical initiatives that help people struggling with anxiety.
As a thank you for your support, the first 50 donors to sign up for monthly gifts will receive a special Anxiety Advocate keychain by Ten + Eight Creations, designed to act as a daily reminder of our joint commitment towards dismantling the prejudice around mental health.
Join our devoted community of staff, volunteers, and donors committed to breaking the stigma around anxiety and show your dedication to mental health by signing up today.
The Impact of Your Support
1 in 4 Canadians have experienced anxiety.
Chances are you know and love someone who needs support. When you become a monthly donor, your gift directly funds the work we do in advocacy, awareness, and education, and invests in our organization’s growth to reach more Canadians in need of relief.

“Anxiety Advocate” is the name of our monthly giving program. When you become an Anxiety Advocate, you join a generous community of donors who assert that mental health is health and should be funded and prioritized as such. Your monthly commitment demonstrates your dedication and allyship to those struggling with anxiety. As an Anxiety Advocate, you will receive a yearly report about the impact of your giving.
- Monthly giving has a greater impact for many reasons. Monthly gifts:
- Provide reliability that allows us to forgo costly fundraising appeals to fund our vital programs and services.
- Cut operational costs by reducing the time spent on administrative tasks and fundraising development.
- Increase our operational capacity to spend more time on the development of our programs, services, and evidence-based resources.
- Allow us to budget and plan for future programs and service delivery that change people’s lives.
- Help us build a community of dedicated supporters who place a higher value on long-term impact in the mental health sector.
