Fundraiser FAQ

How do I register my event?

Once you have an idea about what type of event you want to have, fill out our Community Events Form and send it to a member of our Community Engagement Team. This form helps us determine how we can help you achieve your fundraising goals.

What if I don't know what kind of fundraiser to have?

Don’t worry, we can help! We’ve had many unique events held on our behalf and we can suggest a number of fun activities to get your guests interested and engaged to give back. There have been YESS penny drives, lemonade stands, info booths, car washes, fun runs, concerts, talent shows, and much more!

Do you have a form I can use to track incoming donations or pledges from donors?

Yes! Please request a copy from our Community Engagement Team and we will send it to you via email for you to print as many copies as you would like to use.

How do I promote my event?

Two words… social media!

We would be happy to upload your event details to the Community Events calendar on our website. Many local websites also promote charity events on their website for free. Some of the places we use to post our events that we want the public know about are:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Instagram
  • Kijiji
  • Yelp
  • The Local Good

Can I fundraise online?

Absolutely! Check out our step-by-step guide on creating your online fundraising page. Donations made online will receive an automatic tax receipt. Be sure to fill out the Community Event Form and register your event!
