Communitech wants your help to raise money for those in urgent need during the pandemic.

CEO Iain Klugman says the donations will be benefitting three priority areas in our community.

"One of which is around support for women's shelters, the second is around support for the homeless and the third is around supporting charities that are working on mental health issues. Women, the homeless and mental health are the three priorities for us."

He says they are hoping to raise as much money as possible.

"In the first week, we were able to contribute about $65,000 and we'd like to keep going. We've set a goal for the end of the month, for May 31st, and we'd like to raise as much money as possible between now and then."

Klugman says they've started this initiative to challenge the community to contribute.

"So we built out this model where for every one dollar the individual or company contributes to this fund, we will match it with two additional dollars so $25 bucks becomes $75 bucks."

Communitech is hosting this fundraiser in partnership with the KW Community Foundation.
