MennoHomes welcomes donations to support the creation of new affordable housing in Waterloo Region. All donations will be directed towards our current capital projects unless others designated. (Our ongoing administrative expenses are covered by contributions from existing rental units.)

We also welcome gifts of land or buildings suitable for new housing projects. Property offered at reduced rates, and loans of money at no-interest or low-interest rates are other ways to financially support the work of MennoHomes.

Donations may also be in the form of regular monthly gifts either by electronic transfer or your credit card. Including MennoHomes as a beneficiary when you update your Will is also an important way of supporting the ongoing work of MennoHomes.

To explore these options further please contact MennoHomes at (226) 476-2535 or email Dan Driedger at


MennoHomes accepts donations by e-transfer. Please send your donation to and be sure to include a contact phone number in your message.

Special Needs Fund

MennoHomes maintains a Special Needs Fund to assist tenants with financial emergencies or ongoing financial pressures which make it difficult for them to pay their rent on an occasional or ongoing basis. The purpose of the Special Needs Fund is to help keep families in housing operated by MennoHomes. Threats to safe and secure housing may arise unexpectedly due to decline or loss of income, or household emergencies. Use of the fund is managed by a board-approved committee that oversees small grants, and more typically zero-interest loans, paid back by tenants over an agreed-to period of time. Financial gifts designated “Special Needs Fund” allow MennoHomes to respond to these needs in a generous and compassionate manner.
