Hosting a fundraising event – or adding a fundraising component to an activity you’re already doing – is a great way to support our work in long-term solutions to homelessness! Here, we’ve listed a few ideas for fundraising opportunities to help get you started:
Host an Event
From bake sales to hockey tournaments, chili cookoffs to student sleepouts, we’ve been fortunate to have communities from across the country support us through a variety of fundraising events and activities.
No event is too small! Here is a toolkit to help get you started with planning a fundraising event in your community:
Give up a Gift
Have a birthday coming up? A housewarming? Wedding? Giving up a gift and asking guests to instead make a donation on your behalf is a great way to support long-term solutions to homelessness. Here are a few ways to donate your gift:
- ECHOage allows you to set up an event page, and will split your gift so that 50% of proceeds are donated to Raising the Roof and 50% go towards purchasing an item/items on your wishlist.
- We will happily set up a donation page through our fundraising tool with a link that you can share on your party invitation. Contact us for more details.
- Set-up a donation box at the entrance of your celebration and encourage guests to donate what they can when they arrive.
Our annual Toque Campaign is a great way to get involved in fundraising efforts in your community. Start your own campaign, or support your local Partner Agency! More details here.
