We greatly appreciate your interest in organizing a fundraising event in support of Guelph-Wellington Women in Crisis (GW-WIC) and the supports we offer to the communities we serve. Established in 1977, WIC has worked to advance its mission of providing services to women and their children on woman abuse and sexual violence. WIC believes the potential for change in attitudes, behaviours and systems is possible. However, collaboration and partnership are essential in developing strategy and actions to advocate for and work towards ending violence against women and children.

What is a Third Party Fundraiser?

Third party events are fundraisers benefiting Guelph-Wellington Women in Crisis that are designed, managed and financially resourced by an individual, community group, service club, business or other external participants. We encourage fundraising events that are consistent with our mission.We cannot endorse, support, lend our name or act as a beneficiary to any event, fundraiser or awareness campaign that we believe engages in, promotes or encourages any type of violence, promotes racism, homophobia, classism, ableism or any other type of oppressive attitudes and beliefs that are counter to what WIC stands for.

How They Help Us

Every event, big or small, makes an impactful difference in the lives of women and children in the community who have been traumatized by abuse and sexual violence. Financial donations offer the most flexibility in order to address the greatest need. Whether its counselling, housing, legal help or anything else these women need on their journey from crisis to confidence. WIC is committed to ensuring these services are available to meet the needs of the community. All donations received continue to make a difference in the lives of women and children we serve by providing them with the safety and support they need and deserve to succeed in living happy and healthy lives.
