The We’re Funny That Way Foundation was established in 2005 as an extension of the fundraising efforts of Maggie Cassella and the We’re Funny That Way Festival team. The festival has been raising funds for queer charities since its birth in 1996 and has granted close to half a million dollars to queer charities across Canada.

Last year we were very happy to donate $25,000 to establish a Two-Spirit renewal programme at Shining Mountains Living Community Services in Red Deer, Alberta.
