What OSP Does

The Orphan Sponsorship Program at the University of Toronto raises awareness and funds to sponsor orphaned children across the globe. We do this through the Government of Canada registered charities, to assist them in the hopes of realizing a brighter and safer future. Donations cover education, health, food and shelter, among other basic needs.

You Can Help

Our ability to sponsor over 150 orphans is made possible by the support of our generous donors. To become one, here is how you can contribute. You can give one time donations online to the OSP pool or sponsor an orphan on your own by pledging yearly donations.

What Others Say

The OSP is a group of beautiful-hearted people doing commendable work. Their humble efforts touch the lives of many abroad and inspire many here.
