Charity

Our Charity Affiliation

We understand the importance of creating impact and giving back to the community. Each year KWIB partners with a local organization as a charity affiliation: a large portion of all membership fees, event ticket sales, and special fundraising goes directly to the organization. For the 2017-2018 KWIB season, we are honoured to announce we have chosen to partner with Karis Support Society.

Karis Support Society

Karis Support Society provides a loving home for women struggling with addictions and mental health challenges.
