Our Dedicated Donors
A special thank you to all those who helped to keep our doors open and our garden's green.
LIFE*SPIN places a high value on the support and encouragement of our donors. Your support enables us to continue to grow as one of Canada’s most well-respected community economic development organizations. With your support we continue to adhere to our mission of providing information and supports for individuals surviving on low-income, and to support the empowerment and self-development of these individuals in their efforts to attain self-sufficiency.
Our Accountability Contract is embodied in our By-law and we believe that our accountability is essential to our continuing success.
The Better Business Bureau institutes an extensive set of standards and accountability measures for charitable organizations to manage and report their financial affairs responsibly. LIFE*SPIN adheres to these high standards, to ensure the greatest impact possible for all donations generously made to our work and you are also welcome to contact us with any questions you may have in this regard.
LIFE*SPIN is more accessible to all members of our community thanks to recent project grants from Trillium and London Community Foundation
Gertrude Vaughan Dragon Fund
Pocket-Sized Farms: The City of London donated topsoil and compost to ready the ground for planting. Youth Opportunities Unlimited and HRDC sponsored youth employment in the garden that enabled a day-camp program to run throughout the summer; keeping at-risk children involved in learning throughout the summer, and providing programming for parents who cannot afford programs while surviving on low or part-time wages. The needs of families participating were accommodated, as their critical support needs changed over the summer months. From morning Yoga to afternoon outings, this program has encouraged nutritious eating, recycling, composting, and community engagement. Funding from the May Court Club of London provided staff support, insurance, utilities and nutritious snacks for the children.
