Since 1991 CAIWA has provided services to support Central Alberta’s immigrant women to overcome barriers and challenges of their new country, thanks to the generous funding of our government and private sponsors. Unfortunately, this funding alone does not cover the many needs of the newcomer community we serve.
Our continuous effort in fundraising from individuals, groups and businesses helps us to fulfill our mission and commitment to contribute to our vibrant community.
Building a strong and healthy community needs partnership and teamwork.
To fulfill our objectives we need your help. Any kind of assistance, regardless of the amount or type is appreciated.
“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”
CAIWA is currently looking for Corporate Sponsorship in the following areas:
- Youth Programs

- Women’s Programs

We are committed to using your donation as you specifically intend.
We have adopted the AFP Donor Bill of Rights and the Ethical and Financial Accountability Code and we assure you that we stick with our commitment to these codes.
We will display the names and logos of our sponsors in our gathering area at the CAIWA office; on our web site and in any public announcements.
CAIWA offers service for more than 300 newcomers per month through our numerous services and programs. We continue to improve and expand our services to meet the needs of immigrant women and their families, in Central Alberta that face multiple barriers. This is why we need your support.
