The Women's Resource Society of the Fraser Valley is a registered charity. For more information on registered charities visit the Canada Revenue Agency website at http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/chrts-gvng/dnrs/menu-eng.html

Donations to the WRSFV are applied to our housing projects and support programs that receive little or no government funding. Housing projects include: Santa Rosa Place in Mission, and Christine Lamb Residence and Penny's Place in Abbotsford. The Warm Zone in Abbotsford, a drop-in centre with wrap-around services for street entrenched women, is also a program your donation may support.

In addition to providing financial support to specific facilities, a donation helps to ensure that the women and children we assist receive help with food and clothing, transportation to necessary appointments, access to recreation, assistance meeting prescription drug costs not covered under the BC Pharmacare plan, and other special supports that would otherwise be unattainable.

You may direct your donation to a specific program or you may keep it general and trust us to allocate it wisely. All donations are acknowledged and receipted. Charitable tax receipts are issued if requested.

Financial donations can be dropped off at our administrative offices in Mission or Abbotsford.

More Ways To Support Women & Children;
Would you like to help women and children in your community better their lives? You can help by donating to the WRSFV below.

Donate Now Through CanadaHelps.org!\
Donate to the Women's Resource Society of the Fraser Valley online at CanadaHelps.org

Donations to the WRSFV directly benefit the women and children who live in our second stage housing projects. We receive limited government operational funding to pay for the wrap-around support each woman and child receives when they live in our housing projects. The “silent partners” who donate money help us to ensure that no resident goes without good nutrition, transportation to necessary appointments, opportunities for recreation, and prescription medicines that are not covered by BC Pharmacare.

"Mission Piecemakers" – a group of women who get together once a week to share knowledge and skills while making beautiful quilts that are used for fundraising.

Projects or Events - WRSFV hosts and participates in numerous events each year to raise funds for our programs. The involvement of our volunteers helps make these events fun and successful. Become involved with events like the International Women's Day celebration, Christmas at the Clarke, Celebration of Community. See our Events page to see what we have done in the past year.

Administrative Support - share your time to help with reception or with sorting and organizing donations. Prefer to work from home? Use your creative skills by helping with website, graphic design and newsletter production.
