Volunteer With Us
NSGA would not exist without volunteers. NSGA offers unique volunteer opportunities in both Canada and in The Gambia to people with different skill sets. We are thankful to have volunteers assist us on a variety of projects and initiatives, from those with public relations and communications skills, IT skills, and health and education backgrounds. If you are interested in volunteering with the NSGA, we would love to speak with you!
To get involved, please contact the NSGA Halifax office. We look forward to meeting you!
Make a Donation
Your generous donations allow us to continue working with Gambians to build healthy communities. Almost 90 per cent of every dollar you donate goes directly to the lifesaving programs of NSGA in The Gambia. NSGA is a registered Canadian charity (#137152385). Tax receipts will be issued for any amounts donated to NSGA.
There are many ways you can make a financial donation to NSGA:
NSGA has partnered with CanadaHelps.org, a not-for-profit charity portal and a registered public foundation that seeks to promote and facilitate philanthropy through online giving. CanadaHelps.org offers its services by charging 3.9% of the donation to process it. To donate to NSGA simply click here and follow the instructions!
You can make a one-time donation, monthly contributions or an in memoriam gift. All information entered is strictly confidential and securely protected.Donor information is only provided to the charity to which the donation has been made. Donations can be made anonymously by checking the appropriate box.
Donations made through the CanadaHelps.org website are treated in the same way as regular receiptable charitable donations. Usually within minutes of successfully completing a donation, the donor receives an e-mail notification confirming the transaction. Because CanadaHelps.org is a registered public foundation, donors are e-receipted for a donation to CanadaHelps.org in compliance with Canada Revenue Agency requirements. The donation is processed and funds are directed to the NSGA.
If you prefer to support NSGA offline, you can send a cheque to NSGA. If you wish to make a regular monthly or annual donation, you can send us post-dated cheque(s). All such donations will be receipted within the year of donation.
Simply download and print our donation form and send your donation payable to NSGA to the Halifax NSGA Office at:

United Way of Canada – Centraide Canada
By naming Nova Scotia Gambia Association, charity number 137152385, on your United Way/Centraide return, your employee deductions will be automatically designated for NSGA. We, in turn, will receive quarterly payments on your behalf. Your charity receipt will be prepared by United Way. Please consider this method when September payroll deductions plans are made available.
Special Occasion and In Memoriam Donations
Celebrate special events in your life – weddings, births, birthdays, retirements, memorials, holidays – with a donation to NSGA on behalf of your friend or family member. We send that person a card or letter (or we can send it to you so that you can mail it yourself). You’ll receive a tax receipt for the amount of the gift. The recipient of the card will share in the knowledge that this gift will help children and youth in Africa lead healthier lives.
Donations made in memory of a loved one will be acknowledged with a bereavement card on your behalf.
To make a special occasion or in memoriam donation, please contact the Halifax NSGA Office
