Starting a Fundraiser

So you want to get involved in our mission? Great!  One of the best ways to support the Foundation is through local fundraising initiatives.

Raising money for the Foundation starts with a goal and a plan. How much do I want to raise? How do I want to do it? Some successful fundraising ideas that have worked in the past include bake sales, cookie sales, 5K community runs, marathons, bike-a-thons, and shave-to-raise campaigns. The possibilities are endless.

After determining your fundraising method and goals, let us know and we'll set you up with your very own Campaign Giving Page. This is where your supporters will make their donations, leave you messages of support and encouragement, and track your fundraising efforts.  Canada Helps will take care of issuing all tax receipts.

Once you are ready to get moving, contact us at and tell us about your project. We will support you from start to finish, including a Foundation SWAG kit, depending on your goal.

We will be developing this section over the next few weeks, including "How To" kits, video tutorials, and tips & tricks. Check back often, and share your success stories with us!
