We proudly support the Canadian Women's Foundation.
For the last twenty years, they have been building a community of women and men who are working together to stop the violence, end poverty, and empower girls. We like their proactive approach.

Here is some information taken from their website.
We invest in the strength of women and the dreams of girls. The Canadian Women’s Foundation raises money to end violence against women, move women out of poverty and build strong resilient girls through funding, researching and promoting best practices. We are a leading voice for women in Canada.
Why invest in women and girls?
As a women’s foundation, we specialize in helping women and girls move out of violence, out of poverty, and into confidence.
This mandate makes us proudly unique.
We are the only national foundation in Canada dedicated to giving women and girls a chance for a better life.
Here are the key reasons we focus on women and girls:
- Improving gender equality improves economic and social conditions for everyone.
- Women and girls deserve a chance for a better life—free from violence, poverty, and rigid stereotypes that limit their potential.
- Women and girls face different kinds of economic and social challenges, which require different kinds of solutions.
- Helping women and girls is cost effective and creates very successful outcomes.
Helping women and girls is not only the right thing to do, it’s an intelligent investment in a better future.
Across the globe, people are beginning to recognize the economic and social benefits of improving gender equality.
We focus on women and girls because of the “ripple effect.” When you improve women’s equality, it improves economic and social conditions for everyone.
When women and girls live free from violence, poverty, and rigid stereotypes that limit their potential, our neighbourhoods are safer, our economy is stronger, and our pool of future leaders is more diverse.
