Ways to Give
Survivors of sexual and gender based violence need your help. Together we can create social change.
Your generosity will help us to increase awareness and provide healing from sexual violence, reach out and connect with those in need, train our volunteers, maintain our frontline services and make them more accessible.
What Your Donation Provides
Your generosity will help provide support those who need it most in the area.
Your $25 donation will fund:
- One emergency counselling session
- Bus tickets for 4 clients to and from counselling sessions
Your $50 donation will fund:
- Ten calls to our 24/7 sexual violence helpline
- One full shelf of food in our client food bank
As a monthly donor, you’re helping us to support survivors in need each and every day. When you give to us in a sustainable way through a recurring gift, you give us the potential to plan ahead and ensure we’re providing the best care possible. Your commitment allows us to be financially prepared to serve our community better. Please consider making a monthly gift, or an annual pledge.
Fundraising is a great way to help support our centre while engaging the community. It is a good way to support survivors like yourself, friends, or family in the Nipissing area. Advocacy can be an important part of healing as well as culture of consent and making social change. Contact [email protected] to get started on centre needs and fundraising planning.

Tributes – in Memory or in Honour
Would you like to recognise or remember somebody important in your life while giving to support survivors of sexual violence? A tribute gift is a way to show respect, while helping us to raise awareness and inspire a shift to a culture of consent, equity, respect, healthy relationships and safety. The individual or their family can be notified of your gift.
