Abstract: The women's fund Raising Coalition (cf,CISS 566) is sponsoring this short-term project to raise $100,000. The goal is to provide an emergency fund for specialized women's projects in Toronto which run into money problems, as often happens . It asks that every women in Toronto contribute one dollar. dollar per woman is a "last ditch" effort to sustain a number of women's services such as crisis centres and transition houses hit with changes in government priorities. The project appeals to women directly through door to door canvassing, appeals in the work place or in the classroom. In some cases management is being asked to match monies aisled through contributions of workers. Buttons are available and some are promoting the project through their sale.
This organization no longer exists.
