We gratefully acknowledge the following for funding programs and services of Minwaashin Lodge 
Indigenous Women's Support Centre and Oshki Kizis Lodge:

- Canadian Women's Foundation - Winners, HomeSense, Rogers Media
We would like to give a special thanks to The Canadian Women’s Foundation for their generous donation from their eleventh Annual Campaign to End Violence Against Women.  Along with their partners, Winners and HomeSense, they raised a national total of $2.2 million! Half of the money raised went towards violence prevention programs funded by the Canadian Women’s Foundation and half of the money raised was divided amongst approximately 450 shelters for abused women across Canada. We are very grateful to have been selected to be part of this generous donation.
