Fairy Godmother

Who we are

Fairy Godmother of Ottawa

is a non-profit organization dedicated to making prom night magical for all area teens.

We collect new and almost-new formal dresses, shoes and accessories, and provide them free of charge to Ottawa area high school students who are unable to purchase their own prom attire.

We distribute the dresses and accessories during our scheduled Boutique Days. Each student receives individual assistance from a volunteer personal shopper as she looks through our inventory for

the dress of her dreams.

To date we have dressed over


Ottawa area girls for their

high school prom

Our ultimate goal is to have a positive influence on our Cinderellas by helping them to look and feel beautiful celebrating their accomplishments alongside their peers on prom night.

Who needs a

Fairy Godmother?

Graduating high school students who are unable to purchase their own prom attire are eligible to attend Fairy Godmother's Boutique Days.

We currently rely on students' honesty to verify financial need. Each student will be allowed to borrow a single dress and related accessories.

If not having a beautiful dress is keeping you from attending your prom, then you need a

Fairy Godmother!
