Make Your Business a Community Champion!
Shelter Movers invites your business to help support our vision for a country where fleeing intimate partner violence is barrier-free. Your contribution will generate visibility for your company, while serving to further strengthen Shelter Movers’ financial foundation. Most donations qualify for a charitable tax receipt.
Why Shelter Movers Exists
Breaking the cycle of violence has massive long-term societal benefits. Shelter Movers allows our community partners – such as shelters, police and hospitals – to focus on their main objectives. Each week, we mobilize numerous resources, staff and volunteers to provide free moving and storage services to survivors who are in need of a safe home. By offering these services, Shelter Movers is providing a simple solution to the complex problem of ending gender-based violence.
Be Part of the Solution
Shelter Movers is entirely dependent on the generosity of individuals and businesses to fund our various operations, including volunteer training, vehicle and storage rentals and translation services. We offer our supporters the unique opportunity to align with our mission and vision. Shelter Movers works together with our partners to serve clients, by providing the only service of this kind in Canada. Our Corporate Partners are extremely appreciated and valued!
$200 is the internal cost to move a family to safety. $2,000 recruits and trains new volunteers per month. $20,000 supports a chapter’s operations in one city per month. The funding opportunities for corporate partners are endless!
Shelter Movers manages a lot of moving pieces in order to make over 1000 moves a year possible – from security officers and storage facilities, to fuel and packing materials. Local businesses often have important resources readily available to support our work. Consider an in-kind donation as a way to facilitate a survivor’s journey to safety.
