Host Your Own Fundraising Event
Every year the YW has the privilege of working with individuals and groups who come together to create awareness and raise funds on behalf of YW. Hosting a fundraiser enables you to become a catalyst in our community while having fun and helping vulnerable women and their family’s transition to a place of hope and resilience.
Your fundraiser can raise money that will help women and their families, who may be struggling with poverty, homelessness, family violence or isolation, to move from a position of vulnerability to one of sustainable strength and opportunity.
Here are a few ideas for ways to help YW intervene, empower and lead when and where women need us most:
- Hold a charitable golf tournament or other sporting event and sell mulligans, donate registration fees or raffle off prizes;
- Collect donations in lieu of gifts at your birthday, anniversary or company party;
- Host a gala and donate proceeds;
- Organize a community garage or yard sale and donate proceeds.
YW is a registered Canadian charity #108227927RR0001. Tax receipts are available and applicable to donors through most fundraising efforts; however, some CRA rules and regulations do apply.
By hosting a fundraising event, you’re helping to make a difference in your own community. You’re becoming part of the solution. We can’t do it without you.
