Message from the President
We have a GREAT community in Quesnel! Your generous donations have supported a number of events and services for the Society. Donations covered costs such as rent and utilities (when Our Space was open); support groups; and bursaries. Although we had to close Our Space until the Society becomes sustainable, we still host events like Youth in Transition. In the fall of 2021 we created a new program, Subsidized Counselling for LGTQ2S+ Youth. We hope to secure a larger grant this year to expand this program. This year (2022) we provided a two more $500 bursaries to LGBTQ+ youth who have graduated from high school.
There is even more that can be done - with donations and grants from the people of Quesnel. We rely on your donations!
We also use donations to fund our annual Pride Parade and Afterparty, which gives LGBTQ+ people of Quesnel an opportunity to gather together and celebrate our diverse identities in a safe place. This year with the sponsorship of businesses like Telus, Royal Bank, and Scotia Bank (not to mention KMax who provided the games!), we were able to create a Volunteer Appreciation BBQ and Youth BBQ at the Billy Barker, and these were a great hit. Without donations from our community, we have struggled to fund these vital events. It is important to have a strong, resilient community of LGBTQ+ people to provide peer support and representation of the gender and sexuality spectrums. Your donations support this!
Ways to Give
Donations of cash (or cheque) are welcome. We can issue donation record receipts, but not charitable receipts for claiming on taxes as the Society is a registered non-profit and not a registered charity.
