Fundraising Ideas



Our two charities appreciate every dollar that is fundraised by you and your teams every year.  To assist you with increasing your pledge dollars, here are some fundraising ideas that others have done to surpass their fundraising goals.

Penny Drives

Have all of your team members accumulate pennies over a period of time.  It could be one week, one month or from now until your pledge dollars are due.  You will be surprised by how many pennies your team members collect!!


Organize a BBQ at your office.  Sell Hot dogs, hamburgers and soft drinks. Your BBQ can be a one time event, or, have it span over a couple of weeks every lunch hour.

Dress Down Days

Organize your office to have a dress down day once a week.  Have all participants pay one dollar to participate. The more staff participating, the greater your pledges!

Yard Sales

Organize a team yard sale.  Sale items could include surplus office items, or individual household items.  You could even ask for donations of unwanted items.  Someones trash is always someones treasure!!

Bottle / Aluminium Can Drives

Have your team members collect empty beer bottles and aluminium cans.  Empty wine bottles are even returnable.  Bring them all to your local beer store for a deposit refund.

Bake Sales

Have a sweet tooth? Have your team members put on their bakers hats and have a bake sale at work or in their neighbourhoods.
