Canberra Day Appeal 2023 – Help us raise much needed funds for our charity!

Toora Women is one of the local charities who are participating in this year’s Canberra Giving Day Appeal. This is the capital region’s largest fundraising drive, hosted by Hands Across Canberra, where the entire Canberra community is asked to ‘Give Where You Live’ in a donation drive for Hands Up for Canberra Giving Day on March 8.

Did you know that ‘Toora’ means ‘Women keeping the fire alight’?

This year, we’re participating in the Canberra Day Appeal to fundraise at least $10,000.

– $100 helps Toora provide a week of simple meals for a woman and her children.

– $150 helps one woman and her children receive warm bedding, doonas and blankets from Toora.

– $500 helps Toora provide emergency support for a woman and her children who have to leave their home quickly due to domestic violence.

– $1000 helps Toora provide six sessions of counselling for a woman who has experienced trauma.

– $2500 helps Toora provide childcare for one woman to attend our eight-week alcohol and other drug day program.

You don’t need to wait until March 8 to donate. Donate now and help us reach our goal. Every $1 you donate to Toora Women will become $2 for the first $5,000 that we fundraise, so $5k will become $10k. Plus, every donation over $2 is tax deductible!

We thank you for your donation!
