the funds

Where the
money goes

The work we do would not be possible without the incredible generosity of our supporters.

The funds from our annual Toque Campaign have benefited 200 Partner Agencies across Canada to-date along with our Reside projects.

Donations made to Raising the Roof go to support our national initiative, Reside. Reside transforms vacant buildings into homes for people who are or may become homeless while training and employing people with barriers to employment, supporting them with Wraparound Supports and connecting them to employers.

How do we measure progress?

Our impact

At Raising the Roof, we’re committed to running an efficient organization, and work hard to keep our costs low.

The fantastic team of volunteers across the country help to promote the Toque Campaign and raise awareness of homelessness issues in their community. Our dedicated volunteer Board of Directors provide direction and support to our staff.

We have excellent pro-bono partners and in kind donations that help us to cost effectively expand our reach and stretch fundraising dollars. The investments made by national funders and foundations have ensured that we are we poised for expansion in the coming year.
