SWESA’s Annual Appeal is held each fall as an opportunity for members and the general public to support SWESA. Fundraising accounts for one third of SWESA’s operating budget.

SWESA’s 2022 Annual Appeal formally begins October 1st – but already we have the commitment of a matching $10,000 donation from a generous anonymous donor! You can donate anytime – so why not donate now when you can double the value of your donation!

Friends of SWESA are long term major donors.  They are the mainstay of SWESA fundraising through the Annual Appeal and are given special recognition.  If you would like to know more about becoming a Friend of SWESA, contact treasurer@swesa.ca

Donations are also welcome anytime during the year. All donations, big and small are appreciated. A tax deductible receipt is issued for any donation of $20.00 or more.

In 2021 we raised over $33,000!

Proceeds each year’s campaign are used to expand our range of programming, keep fees affordable and provide both in-person and remote program participation options.

“Friends come into your life for a reason.  SWESA came into my life as a miracle.   As we age we lose our friends for many reasons and life can become lonely. I joined SWESA and life returned.  I have met so many lovely new friends and reunited with friends from years ago. After the recent loss of my husband, I received such kindness and compassion from SWESA friends.”
