Be a CLWR Awareness Builder

CLWR - Awareness Builder

How can you support Canadian Lutheran World Relief beyond opening your wallet?

Become an Awareness Builder in your community and help share CLWR’s story! CLWR would value your help in making presentations, sharing information about new CLWR programs and keeping us in touch with your community.

We occasionally hold Awareness Builder workshops about CLWR in congregations across the country. Watch this page for announcements!

CLWR has a small staff headquartered in Winnipeg, Manitoba, with two regional offices in Waterloo and Vancouver that manage our refugee program. Administration expenses make up a small portion of the CLWR operating budget, which means donations are used effectively to make a difference in the world.

But it also means we have a limited capacity to make ourselves known to Canadians. That’s where our Awareness Builders - and you - come in.

By volunteering as an Awareness Builder and sharing CLWR information with your community, you help us save financial resources for actual aid and development. You also serve as an important way for feedback to get back to us from your own community, so that we can improve our communication and education materials.


As an Awareness Builder you would assist CLWR by


  • Making presentations to groups in your community using resources CLWR provides
  • Helping organize CLWR events in your church, school or community
  • Writing about the work of CLWR for your local newspaper
  • Relaying feedback from your community to CLWR
