New Legacy Fund offers emergency relief to queer and trans people living with cancer and honours the life of artist and activist Will Munro

Toronto – The Will Munro Memorial Committee and The 519 are proud to announce the launch of a new emergency fund aimed at helping queer and trans people living with cancer across Ontario.

Applications for the Will Munro Fund for Queer and Trans People Living with Cancer are now available online

Will Munro (February 11, 1975 – May 21, 2010) was an influential visual artist, DJ, activist, restauranteur and queer community organizer. Although Will died at age 35 following a battle with brain cancer, his legacy lives on through the creation of a fund created through donations from his family, friends and community partners.

“Our goal with this Fund is to try and return the incredible love and support the LGBTQ community shared with Will during his fight, and to hopefully ease the struggles of members of the community fighting their cancer,” says Margaret Munro, Will’s mother, and a member of the Will Munro Memorial Committee.

The Will Munro Fund will provide emergency relief funds on an every second month basis to help queer and trans people during their moments of need while struggling with cancer. The Fund will distribute $5,000 per year over the next five years and will be replenished through additional donations from the community. The Fund is being trusteed by The 519.

“We are extremely grateful to Will’s family and friends for their work and support in helping to create this vital new Fund for our LGBTQ communities,” says John R. Farrell, Director of Development at The 519, “and we are extremely honoured to celebrate Will’s life and legacy at The 519.”
