How to Help ACWS

ACWS is a non-profit, charitable organization with a mission to support members and end domestic violence against women. There are ways you can help us achieve this, and we highly value everyone who contributes because supporters are the backbone of our organization.

Thank you for your interest in supporting us.


ACWS depends on financial donations.  These can range from making a donation on our website, through CanadaHelps OR ATB Cares (whom will suppliment your donation by adding an additional 15% under most circumstances), by mailing a cheque or giving us a call.  Donations may also take the form of financial securities

By donating a financial gift, you help ACWS support shelters, sustain ACWS programming, generate awareness and engage the public; all of which get us closer to ending violence against women together.  


Much of what we do is made possible by volunteers. ACWS has fulfilling and flexible volunteer opportunities. From volunteering at the Biennial Casino Fundraiser, helping out at the Breakfast with the Guys events, or lending your talents to our many initiatives and awareness activities, we invite you to contact us so we can find the right role for you.
