When you fundraise for the Canadian Women’s Foundation, you are helping women, girls and gender-diverse people to get the programs and services they need. This includes programs that help them:
  • Move out of violence by accessing safe housing, sexual violence support, counselling and legal support
  • Move out of poverty by building employment skills, having mentorship opportunities, and break into well-paying fields where women are traditionally underrepresented
  • Move into confidence by providing young people with STEM education, media literacy, mentorship and other tools to develop their resiliency

Our donation forms are secure pages and protect payments with the highest PCI-compliance including Transport Layer Security that encrypt the data when transmitted. You can tell that the donation form is secure when it has a lock icon on the top right-hand corner of the form by the address bar. If you click on the lock icon you will see a message confirming that the page is secure and will display more information on the security certificate.

Your event specifics are up to you! We are here to help you reach your goals – you set your timeframe.

Every gift will help and every dollar counts. Success can also be helping to raise awareness about the work of the Foundation and urgent gender equality issues. We are so grateful for your support and we look forward to celebrating any success you have!
