Become Involved

The success of the Barbra Schlifer Clinic is built on sound partnerships. Regardless of how you choose to get involved, your support will go a long way in helping us to end gender-based violence. Below are some of the ways you can become involved with the Clinic.

Annual Tribute

Due to COVID-19, we made the decision to cancel the 2021 Annual Tribute again this year to ensure the health and wellbeing of our guests, volunteers and staff.

She Matters

YOU MATTER to us. Therefore, we have made the responsible decision to cancel this year’s annual SHE MATTERS event.

Spirit of Barbra Schlifer Award

If you know an exceptional woman who has dedicated her career to advancing the rights of women, consider nominating her for a Spirit of Barbra Schlifer Award.

Membership

Your membership is vital to our accountability, and your input is a key element in planning and delivering programs and services.

Volunteers are valued members of the Schlifer Clinic! We know that as a volunteer, you have choices. We’re grateful that you chose us!

The Ambassador Circle is comprised of a group of individuals focused on raising awareness and funds through events to support the elimination of violence against women.

Planned Giving

When you choose to make a charitable gift, you’ve considered the importance of a life free from violence for future generations of women and children.  We would be pleased to work with you and your advisors to arrange a planned gift that best suits your goals.

Donate by Phone or Mail

To make a donation by mail, please complete our donation form and return with payment.  Income tax receipts will be issued with every donation over $10 dollars.

Donate a Car

The Clinic partners with Donate A Car Canada so that you know that you previously loved and owned vehicle is recycled or sold responsibly. Choose Donate A Car Canada  and receive a charitable tax receipt from the Clinic within 45 days!

In Kind Donations

 In-kind donations are treated differently than cash donations by Revenue Canada. Such donations require that there be no cost involved for the clinic. A charitable tax receipt is issued after the value of the gift has been independently determined.

Items we have received in the past include gifts of art, items donated by corporations, vacation properties for loan, services and gift certificates.
