GIVING TUESDAY - CIRCUSWEST PERFORMING ARTS SOCIETY

Across Canada and around the world, GivingTuesday unites people by sharing their capacity to care for and empower one another. GivingTuesday harnesses the potential of social media and the spirit of generosity to effect real change in their communities.
As such, CircusWest is raising funds this season to support outreach and bursaries for CirKids camps and classes. This fall, CircusWest launched the Renee Withers Memorial Bursary Fund initiative to allow kids, who may otherwise not be able, to afford circus training and experience the magic of performance and to find their tribe. Circus was a passion for Renee Withers connecting her, with people who, like herself, saw and approached the world in a different way.
CircusWest & Renee’s family honour her memory with an ongoing fund to provide circus training and performance opportunities for other youth. To donate to the CircusWest Renee Withers Memorial Bursary Fund, please visit ow.ly/EYeY50H0hg9
We thank you for your consideration and support.
Dream BIG with CircusWest!
