What Will Your Donation Cover?

Navigating the refugee system is no easy task, taking significant amounts of time and money. Once a person has been granted refugee status, they often face increased difficulties establishing themselves in their newfound community. 

Your donations will support the following monthly costs, helping an LGBTQI refugee make the transition into Canadian society:

Public Transit: $100
Seasonal Clothing: $200
Nutritious Food: $300
Rent: $500

Our fundraising Goals

Under the Canadian refugee system, community groups can sponsor refugees to come to Canada and become members of our community. The cost of sponsorship is not cheap, however, so financial contributions play a foundational role.

Our goal is to raise approximately $11,000 so that we may sponsor an LGBTQI refugee seeking re-settlement in Nova Scotia.
