What is a Third Party or Community-led Fundraiser?

Third party events are fundraisers that are designed, managed and financially resourced by an individual, community group, service club, business or other external participants. Proceeds are then donated to support our services.

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 gender-based violence. Financial donations offer the most flexibility in order to address the greatest need. Whether it’s 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.

To ensure this event is a positive fit for all parties involved, we ask you to take a minute to review and comply with our Third Party Event Guidelines. 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.

We are grateful for supporters who hold community-led events on our behalf. What an amazing show of support for our work. Thank you.
