Our organization now comprises over 1,100 volunteers in Ottawa and in 25 communities
across Canada. The quilts we provide are made by individual quilters who work independently, or in groups
in a team setting similar to the quilting bees of times past. Our
volunteers make and distribute more than 480 quilts per month, on average, and,
over the past fourteen years we've delivered nearly 40,000 to people with cancer across the country.
Our work is generously supported by our corporate sponsors, who help by donating or discounting their products and services, and by making financial grants and donations. Community groups and organizations also support our program through financial contributions to the National Office and to the Branches. However, the major source of our funds are donations from private individuals, who are often the recipients of our quilts, and their families and friends. As we do not have any paid staff, we rely solely on the generosity of these donations and that of our volunteers to carry out our mission.
Our annual fundraising raffle is now on and, once again, the prizes,
described below, are spectacular. Tickets are only $2.00 each or 3 for
$5.00. They are available from Victoria's Quilts Canada members and kiosks or
