Inspiring giving to build a vital community
for everyone

The Kawartha Muslim Religious Association (KMRA) has asked the Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough to hold and manage a fund to address needs of women and children. The mosque executive approached CFGP, in part, because of the 2015 Greater Peterborough Vital Signs report that focussed on belonging and inclusion in Peterborough and the grants that CFGP makes to charities to build social cohesion and quality of life in the community.

Following the deliberate burning of the mosque the KMRA membership received a tremendous outpouring of support from the community. A crowdfunding campaign generated more than $110,000 to aid in restoring the mosque. Surplus funds from this campaign will be used to establish the KMRA Fund for Women and Children - fund that will support the YWCA Crossroads Shelter and Five Counties Children's Centre.

If you would like to donate, please click on the Canada Helps link on the right hand side bar of this page or click here, and select Kawartha Muslim Religious Association Fund for Women and Children.
