Windsor-Essex Family Network is a not-for-profit charity. We are primarily families helping families. We value the commitment of volunteers who are a big part of the work we do. Windsor-Essex Family Network operates independently of government, agencies and services. We are autonomous. Volunteers sometimes assist with proposal writing in order to receive small grants. Other funding comes from private donations, and sponsorship funds and in-kind support from our collaborative partners to keep the work going.
Donations can be made one of two ways. A cheque can be written to Windsor-Essex Family Network and then mailed directly to us. OR A donation can be made securely online through the Canada Helps website. A charitable receipt will be provided in both instances.
