Wish List

Reducing costs through donations helps ensure we can continue to offer our essential services to women, children and teens impacted by gender-based violence.

What’s the best way to help DASO?

Monetary donations – cash, cheque or e-transfer – help us fund the areas within our operating budget where we need your help the most.

  • All amounts are welcome and eligible for charitable tax receipts. The donor’s name and mailing address are needed to process the receipt.
  • Please make cheques payable to:
    Domestic Abuse Services Oxford, 975 James Street, Woodstock, ON N4S 0A5

You can also donate to us through the secure website Canada Helps.

Wish List items

Our Wish List is updated regularly (so check back often!) and includes giving options for every budget. Whether you make an individual donation, or join together with family members, co-workers or friends, your contribution has the power to change many lives for the better and is most appreciated.


We are often single-staffed and may be supporting a person in the office or on the phone. If you require assistance with your donation, please call ahead and make an appointment at 519-539-4811. If we are unable to greet you, please do not forget to sign our Donation Book located inside the first set of doors on the righthand side.
