NAWL has launched its Staying Alive campaign in response to changes in the mandate of the Status of Women Canada’s Women’s Program, which make most of NAWL’s work ineligible for ongoing funding. In order to continue our essential work for Canadian women, NAWL must raise $300,000.00 by September 1, 2007. Although NAWL will seek appropriate partnerships with like-minded corporations, businesses, agencies and foundations, most of our Staying Alive support will come from individuals like you, who value democracy within Canada and equal rights for all women.
How you can help
• 750 women giving $200.00 each will bring us halfway to our target. That’s only 75 women per province. Please consider making a donation and, if someone you know can also support NAWL in this way, tell her about our campaign.
• Host a NAWL Staying Alive dinner! If you love to cook and throw parties, this is the fundraiser for you.
• ALL GIFTS COUNT! Whether you can donate $5, $10 or $20, NAWL can put every contribution to good use for all Canadian women.
• Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for ideas and tips.
Please make your cheque payable to NAWL and send it to this address. Please mark your cheque “Staying Alive” in the memo line so we can track your contribution appropriately.
