A note about money: Each of the four groups is hoping to raise between $35,000 and $40,000 to support each family for their first year in Canada. We are confident this is an achievable goal and are working with one another to make sure that we are asking for support from the community in a coordinated way. To be clear, each group is raising funds individually and we are running some events together where we will share the proceeds.
All members of the CWRN have made this promise to ALL our donors: we guarantee that any funds committed through any one of our projects will be used toward supporting a refugee family to have a successful move into the Guelph/Wellington community. Should any one of our sponsorships not happen for whatever reason, we will re-direct those to one of the other three groups to support their efforts.
