Monetary Donations

Your donations have a significant impact on local women's lives through our programs! WIN does not use government funding, which means that we rely entirely on the support of you and the community to continue our work.

Here is how you can donate:

  • Donate online using PayPal, follow the link below;

  • Send a cheque to 785 Pandora Avenue, Victoria, BC, V8W1N9 made out to "Victoria Women In Need Community Cooperative"

  • Drop by one of our four resale shops to donate by cash, cheque, Debit Card, or Credit Card

We are a non-profit social enterprise rather than a charity so we are unable to issue charitable tax receipts. If you have any questions regarding your monetary donations, please call 250-480-4006, or e-mail at win@womeninneed.ca

Donate Online

 
 

We try our best to provide women in our programs with the best quality items that we can. Donations that do not go directly to women in our programs are sold in our Resale Shops at affordable prices to our customers. As we do not use any government funding, we rely on the sales in our stores to be able to run the programs for women in our community. For this reason we do need to have high quality standards for the every item that we accept. The cost to repair, recycle or otherwise dispose of unusable donations is not affordable for us. Please see our Donation Guideline for details.

Furniture Donations

We try our best to provide women in our New Start Program with the best quality items that we can. Furniture that does not go into our New Start deliveries is sold in our Resale Shops at affordable prices to our customers. As we do not use any government funding, we rely on the sales in our stores to be able to run the programs for women in our community.

How to Donate Furniture to WIN

In Person:

785 Pandora Avenue - MAP
Donation hours:
Monday through Saturday 10am - 4pm
Sunday 11am - 3pm

*Please also be aware that we may not be able to accept some pieces due to our limited warehouse and store space and we can only accept upholstered furniture from pet free and smoke free homes. To get a better idea if your item will be accepted, please email photos of your donations to win@womeninneed.ca

Pick-ups by our Truck:

If you have furniture you would like to donate but cannot transport it yourself, we offer a furniture pick-up service in selected areas of Victoria and Langford. Due to our limited resources, this service is often booked with 1-3 weeks in advance. 

For more information, fill out our furniture donation form and we'll contact you, or call us at 250-480-4006 ext 204. We find that a picture of the goods you would like to donate makes it a lot easier for us to plan our pick-ups, and you can attach these to the furniture donation form (or email them to win@womeninneed.ca). 

Langford Donations

We are currently unable to accept donations at our Langford store due to a lack of storage availability. We have had many generous offers of donations and we are looking for solutions. We do offer a pick-up service for furniture donations in selected areas of Langford. Contact us for more details. Like us on Facebook to be updated about how to donate to WIN.
