Your Hour, Her Power • 2024

Your Hour, Her Power is a dynamic celebration of women's empowerment and economic independence where we are calling on our community to come together in support of the women we serve.
March 1, 2024

Dress for Success Toronto’s month-long fundraising initiative for International Women’s Day — and the organization’s 15 Year Anniversary — is inspired by the belief that when a woman has access to opportunities that can change her life, she becomes powerful beyond measure.

Empowering women is at the heart of what we do. At DFS Toronto, we’re on a mission to cultivate a community where women flourish in both their personal and professional lives. This journey toward empowerment is a collective effort, and we’re inviting you to join us. 

about international women's day

International Women’s Day (IWD) is a global celebration of the accomplishments, resilience, and ongoing progress of women from all walks of life. It is also an opportunity for us to come together to fundraise, advocate for change and accelerate progress towards equality. And with global gender equality still 131 years away according to the Global Gender Gap Report, the time for action is now.

With this in mind, DFS Toronto recognizes the profound significance of International Women’s Day, and extends our IWD celebration throughout the entire month of March. 

By donating the equivalent of just one hour of your pay, you have the opportunity to contribute to a lasting impact in the lives of the women we serve.

All donations above $10 are eligible for a charitable tax receipt. Receipts are issues within 3-5 business days of your donation.
