Every gift made to the We Support LGBTQ Ukraine Fund goes directly towards the needs of queer folks displaced or trapped by war. With over 650 donors to date, the Fund crossed the $100,000 CAD line in October 2022.
Thanks to a rolling group of matching donors, the Fund has developed a strong footing. An avid proponent of social justice and education, entrepreneur James Burn matched the first $10,000 CAD raised. Within 5 days of the Fund’s inception, this goal was reached. LGBTQ+ community leaders Salah Bachir and Jacob Yerex then matched $10,000 CAD in donations. The generous Linton Family then picked up the torch with a $10,000 CAD match. If you’re interested in becoming the Fund’s next matching donor, please contact Andrew Kushnir at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A charitable tax receipt is issued for all donations received.
Over the course of 2022, the Fund has also received meaningful support from Labatt Breweries of Canada and Air Canada.
