Run for DEWC

Thank you for your interest in fundraising for the Downtown Eastside Women’s Centre! Your fundraising multiplies impact, raises awareness, and is integral to supporting the ongoing work of DEWC: providing safety, dignity, and a platform for empowerment for self-identifying women in the Downtown Eastside.

Third-party fundraisers are run independently with proceeds benefiting DEWC’s essential services and programs.

If you are interested in having a fundraiser, please contact Elody Croullebois, Fundraising and communications coordinator.

Fundraising events can include, but are not limited to:

  • Staff Holiday Party (cash or gifts)
  • Donation drive (items from our wishlist) 
  • Business proceeds from sales (products or services)
  • Online classes (fitness, art, cooking, etc.)
  • Entertainment Events (music, comedy, bingo)
  • Bake Sales
  • Competitions
  • Birthday Fundraisers

Once you have collected donations, you can donate online on our website, mail us a cheque or deliver a cheque in person. Please list any detail about the fundraiser you hosted in the “memo” portion of your online or cheque donation. This will help us properly recognize your efforts! We are incredibly grateful for this support.

Tax Receipts

In accordance with CRA regulations, third-party event proceeds, pooled donations, and cause-marketing are not eligible for charitable tax receipts. However, we are happy to provide an acknowledgement letter for initiatives supporting the Centre.
