Please consider joining us in our annual celebration of education, empowerment and employment by sponsoring a graduate from our Small Steps to Success Program during the holidays. Each year, through the generosity of our community, we are able to provide gifts and necessities to help make the season brighter for some of our program participants. 

Festive Futures Donation 2016This is your chance to support a woman who has, and continues to, work hard to support herself and her family.. but needs a bit of extra support to make her season bright and festive.

Help us to make a difference in the lives of low income women and children in your community by becoming a Festive Futures sponsor! 


There aer several ways to get involved and make a difference. 


Don't have a lot of time to shop but want to make an impact? Make a direct donation online
On average, our holiday helpers spend $50 for each woman or family member in need over the holidays. Our team is really great at taking your donation and making it go as far as possible. 


Here's how it works: you fill out our sponsorship form to let us know that you wish to help a family in need.  Within 24 hours, someone from our team will contact you with a family to sponsor, along with their wish list. You will do the shopping and we will deliver the gifts to our families in time for the holidays. This is a great way to feel personally connected to your gifts and the families that will be receiving them. 
We're also always happy to fulfill any special requests if you have them, so let us know if you do!


If you're looking for a corporate giving program to support locally, we'll be happy to provide you with a few families that your team can support directly. If you choose, we'll provide you with wish lists from select families so you and your colleagues can shop for yourself! Fill out our sponsorship formto get started, and one of our staff members will contact you within one business day to arrange the details.

This is a meaningful way to come together and make a real difference in your community during the season of giving. If you have any questions pertaining to sponsorship, programming or participants, contact us.

* PLEASE NOTE:  If you are opting for shopping on your own, all gifts must be unwrapped and dropped off at The W, 20 Dickson Street by Friday, December 6, 2018.  Our team will make every effort to accommodate special requests. 

Thank you for making the season merry and bright for women and their families!
