How it Works

When you purchase a gift, your donation supports Oxfam Canada’s life saving work around the world.  Your Oxfam Unwrapped gift helps people living in poverty gain greater levels of self-sufficiency and control over their lives and the future of their communities.

Oxfam creates lasting solutions by working with communities and listening to people when they tell us what they need to change their own lives, whether it’s a dozen baby chickens or a chance to start a small business.

Because you're helping Oxfam Canada fight poverty, your purchases are tax deductible. Once you've purchased your gift, a tax receipt will be sent to you by email. Oxfam Canada is only able to issue a charitable tax receipt in the name of the individual who has made the donation/gift.

Simply put:

  1. You select an item.
  2. A Card is delivered to your friend, family, client or colleague.
  3. You will get an e-receipt, and an email confirming your gift.
  4. Your symbolic gift, is actually a donation - going to those who need it most.
