POLI raising funds for refugee family

Please help us raise our goal of CA $30,000 to bring the family to Victoria.

A group associated with the Political Science department reached out to their friends and former retirees of the Political Science department to form a sponsorship group in December 2018. Now this group of 20 is fully engaged, seeking donations and starting to prepare the arrival of a refugee family to Victoria. The financial obligation to raise funds is a priority at the moment and this is why we are reaching out to you.

Donate via our CHIMP fundraising site.

Or directly to ICA: Cheques can be given to ICA's reception desk at 930 Balmoral Rd (please insert our number "CG094- 19"). Donations can also be made directly on ICA's website with a credit card. Donors can donate at https://interland3.donorperfect.net/weblink/weblink.aspx?name=E335022QE&id=1

Choose "Private Sponsorship of Refugees" from the dropdown menu, then type "CG094-19" into the box underneath.
