Host Your Own Fundraiser

Giving back to your community hospital can be a real celebration! Whether you’re thinking of a BBQ or special dinner, a concert, a wine tasting, a walk-a-thon, auction, beach party, fashion show, car wash, golf tournament or bake sale, we can help you be successful in your fundraising efforts.

Third Party (that's you!) Fundraising falls into three distinct categories:

Tributes
If you are planning a memorial service or special occasion to celebrate and honour loved ones, whether it is a birthday party, wedding, anniversary or retirement celebration, consider creating a personal giving page for donations to our hospital in lieu of flowers or other gifts. It's easy!

Cause Marketing
This refers to a cooperative effort between a for-profit business and a not-profit organization to raise funds. For instance, a restaurant donates 50 cents or $1 from every customer bill for a set time period. All funds raised through a cause marketing initiative must be received by the Foundation within 30 days of the close of the promotion. 

Special Events
If you would like to hold a special event, please REGISTER YOUR EVENT and agree to the terms of the Foundation's Policies for Third Party Fundraising Events.




These policies include:
  1. Ensuring transparency and accurate record keeping for issuing of official donation tax receipts.
  2. The event organizers are responsible for securing insurance for the event or activity and agree to cover all costs of such insurance.
  3. Obtaining a gaming license, if applicable.
  4. Delivering all donations to the Foundation within 30 days of the event.
  5. Once the donation has been received, a cheque presentation will be scheduled along with public recognition.
Please note that the Foundation will not sanction the following types of third party fundraising activities, including, but not limited to:
  • Events that encourage/involve behaviour that is counter to the Foundation’s mission, values and programming activities; 
  • Activities that involve a professional fundraiser, telemarketer and/or agreement to raise funds on a commission bonus or percentage basis;
  • Direct solicitation (door-to-door canvassing, telemarketing or internet methods not aligned with the Foundation’s current online fundraising practices);
  • Events involving the promotion of a political party or candidate, or appearing to endorse a political activity.
The Foundation reserves the right to decline participation and support for any fundraising initiative that does not fall within our mandate. The Foundation may also, at any time, withdraw the right to use its name for fundraising or other purposes and all such activities shall immediately cease and be discontinued.

All set? Ask for our top tools to help make your event a success, including:

  • Brochures/Thrive magazines
  • Donation Box
  • A Banner
  • Copy of our logo
  • A Foundation representative to speak at your event - based on availability
  • An overview of tax receipt guidelines
  • Thank you letters and tax receipts
  • Pre-event promotion through the Foundation's website and social media channels
