Fundraising for Toronto’s First “Men’s Centre” Nears Halfway Point
Canadian Association for Equality Secures $20K, Announces Additional $10K Matching Drive
TORONTO, ONTARIO — (August 19, 2013) The Canadian Association for
Equality (CAFE) has secured $20,000 in donations for the Campaign to
Establish the Canadian Centre for Men and Families, nearing the
halfway point milestone of its $50,000 goal.
Additionally, a donor has pledged $10,000 in matching funds toward a
membership drive for the organization.
“The Canadian Association for Equality today launches a membership
drive that, if successful, will bring us into the home stretch of the
Campaign,” said Malcolm Johnston, CAFE Spokesperson. For the next 4
weeks, until September 15, all membership funds will count as double.
“Now is the perfect time to join an organization that is willing to
speak out in critical but marginalized areas like violence against
men, the declining educational performance of boys, and the bias
against fathers in our family courts,” said Johnston.
The mission of the Canadian Centre for Men and Families is to
establish the first space in Toronto for services, research, advocacy,
outreach and public education on all aspects of issues related to
boys, fathers, men and families.
