Get Involved

How you can help.

Become a Donor

Durham Outlook relies one hundred percent on philanthropic donations to accomplish the work we do. We do not receive government funding to serve 50,000 meals a year to people in our community who are:

  • on limited incomes
  • on disability pensions
  • under-employed
  • unemployed
  • under-housed
  • experiencing mental health and addictions issues

The fact is that without generous donations from individuals, corporations and foundations many of our patrons would not eat at all.

Please consider supporting our essential cause. Please click here to donate.
