Always Bold, Now Gold.
“I have to say I think that organization has been bold every day of its life – every day of its life – and of course it turns gold because of that! There is consistency in every thread of everything that we do and every day we have to be bold … and we are!”
~Elly Silverman, Founder, Calgary Birth Control Association
In 2022, Centre for Sexuality is celebrating 50 extraordinary years of advocacy, education, and change.
Since 1972 as the Calgary Birth Control Association/Calgary Sexual Health Centre/Centre for Sexuality, our work has been driven by people who care about the issues we address, the clients that we serve, and the communities that we seek to build. We have remained innovative because individuals have always stepped up and supported us financially, enabling us to respond to emerging needs as well as continue the core work that is vital to the health and wellness of our community.
That is why we are so thrilled to announce the Half Century Fund, a fundraising initiative that is future focused and driven by the fifty years of work we have done in the community. A generous group of donors have come together to establish this special legacy fund that will support the Centre’s future bold initiatives, and help us to influence individuals, communities, and systems to support our mission of sexual well-being for all.
The Fund’s founding donors include past board chair and champion of the Centre, Pat Cochrane; an anonymous donor; and our current Board, who together have contributed an initial $75,000 to match community donations. Our goal for this golden anniversary year is to raise an additional $75,000 from the community.
