How You Can Help

Women & Children’s Emergency Shelter in Winnipeg


As a registered non-profit in times of fiscal prudence and increasing operational costs, donations and fund-raising are vital and help us to provide quality care and services for the women and children who come through our doors.

Hosting a fundraising event is a wonderful way to let women and children, who come to us from situations of violence and abuse, know that they are cared for and supported by their community.  It’s also a great way to raise awareness about family violence and abuse, as well as available services.

Any type of event (small or large) helps!  Some ideas are:

  • Collections at work or school (monetary or in-kind donations) i.e., bake sales, wear jeans day, etc.
  • Organized drive for in-kind donations
  • Events which require an entry fee, i.e., golf tournament, galas, breakfasts, 5k/10k walk or run
  • Gifts on behalf of another person, i.e., donation in lieu of a birthday gift
  • Planned giving/estate gifts
