Hi there. Thank you for taking the time to read about the Rainbow Charity Network.
First off, RCN is actually the We’re Funny That Way Foundation with a new name. We thought that rebranding the foundation with a broader name might help us expand our fundraising to a wider audience of donors and we’re in the planning stages of how try to make that happen.
Historically though, the foundation has been around since 2005 raising funds and donating money to queer causes across Canada.
The foundation tries to seek out small, struggling, or start-up programmes especially those in less populated areas, that support the queer community in a variety of ways. We support youth, health, social, and arts organizations. We aim to make our grants have the most impact possible by focusing on groups that operate on shoestring budgets or groups that bring essential services such as counselling and support to queer youth. We also try to support queer refuge relocation to Canada when possible.
