“When we lose the right to be different, we lose the privilege to be free.”

—Charles Evans Hughes

Thank you for your support!



Many within the LGBT+ community are escaping from persecution and death from their countries of origin. Safely coming to Canada offers its own set of challenges. Your financial contribution to the Foundation of Hope goes towards financial support through grants, which are administered to Canadian charities that actively support these refugees. Funds provide the critical support for arrival and full integration into Canadian society, which makes a significant difference in the lives of refugees and newcomers to Canada.
