STRUT is now over for 2021. Thanks to our many donors we raised $48,705 to support our LGBTQ+ Refugees & Newcomers. It is never too late to join our organization as a volunteer or to make a donation that will impact the lives of LGBTQ+ Refugees facing persecution around the world.
Why is STRUT so important?
Imagine that your life is in danger because of your sexual orientation or gender. You have no other option than to flee from your home, leaving everything behind, moving to a strange new place with no friends or family. Imagine living in a world without Hope.
But there is hope – Rainbow Foundation of Hope.
About STRUT and Rainbow Foundation of Hope
STRUT is the Rainbow Foundation of Hope’s annual fundraising event. Since 2015 we have gathered together to raise Hope but this year we are going virtual. We are excited to invite participants from our communities all over Canada to partipate in the first ever Virtual STRUT.
Our mission is to financially support a network of charities that assist private sponsorship and resettlement services for LGBTQ+ refugees.
Rainbow Foundation of Hope has disbursed over $300,000 in grants and other benefits to Canadian charities supporting LGBTQ+ refugees and newcomers. Learn about our people Impact.
