Give a family the gift of opportunity this May


You have the power to change the path of a family experiencing homelessness by giving a gift to Claire’s Campaign.

Claire’s Campaign is Inn from the Cold’s annual matching campaign that runs throughout the month of May. Gary Nissen, long-time supporter of Inn from the Cold, will match donations up to $250,000. Karen Zutter, Gary’s sister,  will match donations on an additional $100,000; and the Hutchison Family will match donations on an additional $50,000.

This year’s goal for Claire’s Campaign is $800,000. We are asking Calgarians for their support in achieving this goal.

Funds raised through Claire’s Campaign will support our Family Support Program funding critical programming and operational needs in our Emergency Family Shelter and Housing.
