About us

Hats On For Awareness is a Toronto based charity that raises funds to further the reach of mental health programs which enhance the lives of those living with and affected by mental illness and addictions.

We believe that mental health is a vital component to overall wellness and we need to make it a priority in our personal, business and community lives. We need to raise awareness regarding these illnesses, consistently battle against the stigma they hold, and fund the research and programs to truly achieve Mental Wellness For All.

Our impact

HOA raises funds to invest in organizations that are breaking barriers to ensure local mental health and wellness programs can be offered to more individuals. Simply put, we all need access to mental health care.

We are proud to have raised over $1.3 million to further the awareness and support of mental health programs.

Our
mission

WE RAISE FUNDS TO FURTHER THE REACH OF MENTAL HEALTH PROGRAMS.

We are committed to increasing funding to ensure better local mental health and wellness programs can be offered to more individuals needing help, more frequently.

Our values

Our story

Hats On For Awareness looks for donors and contributors who have the ability to contribute financially in order to reach our goals. Driven by the opportunity to enhance the work of their beneficiaries, including the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Jack.org, Humber River Hospital and others, Hats On brings people together to support these important and impactful organizations.

With a small but mighty leadership team, Hats On For Awareness hosts fundraisers, including the annual Hatsquerade Gala, and we have achieved a support network of over 2,000+ individuals. We use our platform to amplify the need for more programs and how individuals and corporations can help.

We strive to change lives through accessibility.
