Peace Arch Hospital Foundation Projects: Third Party Fundraising

Third Party Fundraising

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

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 non-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 contact our Community Engagement Officer (Shonna Breslaw) OR REGISTER YOUR EVENT and agree to the terms of the Foundation's Policies for Third-Party Fundraising Events.
