Appreciation and Recognition

We extend warm and gracious thanks to the individuals, businesses, services groups, foundations and funders who give so generously to the work of SOWINS. Each year we must fundraise over 30 per cent of our operating budget to maintain the programs and services we are committed to providing our community. We could not do this work without the generous support of our funders and donors. In addition to donations, you support our work by giving your time, talents and resources to help make a difference in women’s and children’s lives. Thousands of volunteer hours, participating in and organizing events, and being ambassadors for the work that we do helps to raise awareness about the impact of violence on people and our community. It is with immense gratitude that we thank you for joining in our commitment and sharing in our vision of ending violence against women and children. Together, we are sowing the seeds of change in our community; empowering women and children to live free of abuse.

How We Raise and Spend Our Money

Our commitment to you is that we make every dollar count by providing a wide range of programs and services for the women and children who come to SOWINS, taking that first courageous step to live free of abuse. If we can answer any questions about how your donations are used, please do not hesitate to contact our Executive Director at (250) 493-4366 ext. 101
