Causes We Support

Background

Raintree Financial Solutions is proud to be presenting sponsor of the 2019 International Women’s Day Women & Wealth Galas in Edmonton and Calgary.

International Women’s Day Women & Wealth Gala

The International Women’s Day Women & Wealth Gala is hosted by Women & Wealth Inc., a not-for-profit organization that holds events on International Women’s Day to empower, inspire and support women across Canada who are, or are on their way to becoming, confident and passionate leaders of our businesses, organizations, governments, schools, and communities. Together, we seek to help close the gender gap and promote gender equality within our society.
Our mission is to provide a platform for women across the country to share their journey of success and inspire and empower others with their story. Through our International Women’s Day Galas, we bring people together to celebrate the social, educational, economical, and political achievements of female leaders.
Women & Wealth Inc.’s Board of Directors and volunteers include Peter Kinkaide – CEO of Raintree Capital, Sean Wilson – Raintree Private Wealth Advisor, Peter Klassen – Raintree’s Manager of Advisory Services and Colleen Springler – Raintree’s VP of Finance.

The Canadian Women’s Foundation

All net proceeds of the event, including silent auction sales, will be donated to the Canadian Women’s Foundation.
The Canadian Women’s Foundation is Canada’s public foundation for women and girls. They fund programs across Canada, prioritizing the communities where the need is greatest. These programs address four urgent issues: prevention of gender-based violence, women’s economic development, girls’ empowerment, and inclusive leadership.
The Foundation works toward systemic change by bringing together community organizations across Canada to share knowledge and solutions. Their expertise has made them a revered hub comprised of national community grassroots leaders, issue experts, advocates, and donors that are raising awareness and keeping up the momentum toward gender equality. Since 1991, the Canadian Women’s Foundation has raised more than $80 million, funded programs in more than 1,500 communities, and supported women’s shelters across Canada.
