WHEN WE BELIEVE, WE CAN MAKE CHANGE HAPPEN!
With your support, the Schlifer Clinic can help women and gender-diverse people move beyond violence, heal and begin to believe in themselves again.
Gender-based violence continues to be one of the most underreported crimes in Canada. Shame, fear of revenge, criminalization, normalization of unwanted sexual behaviour, and not knowing where to turn or whom to trust are among the reasons people don’t report. Help ensure safe places and resources like those at the Clinic are available to survivors. Let’s NORMALIZE reporting gender-based violence by providing the supports survivors need most.
During the pandemic, our doors stayed open
They will receive the services they need.
The moment a client calls us, emails us, or walks through the door, their immediate needs become our priority. Our integrated intake team can assess their safety concerns, determine who they should speak with first, and align them with the counselling, legal, and interpretation services they need to create a pathway to safety, security, and healing.
AND WITH YOUR
Their support is our priority.
Freedom from violence can’t wait. Approximately every six days a woman in Canada is killed by her intimate partner. Everyone is susceptible to violence – no matter their background, gender-identification, or circumstance. We know that women, girls, and members of the LGTBQ2+ community are at a higher risk of gender-based violence. Support our priority to stop gender-based violence from destroying lives, families, and communities, by making freedom from violence everyone’s priority.

THIS YEAR OUR GOAL
IS TO RAISE $200,000
Now entering its 3rd year, the Spirit of Schlifer Campaign invites Canadians to raise critical funds for the Barbra Schlifer Commemorative Clinic, Canada’s only fully integrated clinic to offer the essential counselling and legal and interpretation services to survivors of gender-based violence. When we unite, as friends, family, colleagues, partners and as a community, to support a collective end to gender-based violence, we can effect real change. Join us today and become a Believer. Believe that there is an end to gender-based violence.
The Spirit of Schlifer Campaign was created as an online fundraising campaign when it became clear in 2019 that the global health pandemic, COVID-19, would impact in-person events. In the past two years, the Campaign has raised a total of $282,680. These funds are vital to the overall operations of the Clinic, but particularly to the provision of our essential services. Our goal this year is to raise more than $200,000. With your help, We Believe we can reach our goal. We Believe in our partners and cherish the support they give. We Believe in the resilience of survivors to never give up. And We Believe in you.
