Thank you for your interest in fundraising for CARE Canada. Whether you’re an individual, business, community group, or school or service club, organizing your own fundraiser is a great way to support CARE’s poverty fighting work while having fun!
Get started in 3 easy steps
STEP #1: Plan your fundraising campaign
Need some help or inspiration?
Host your very own Walk In Her Shoes event by challenging your friends and family to walk 10,000 steps in support of women and girls.
Ask your friends and family to donate money for every kilometre you run, walk, swim or bike.
Lunch and Learn
Host a speaker series for your office, school or community. Depending on your location, you could invite CARE staff to share their stories.
Host a film night at a community centre or with a group of friends. The film Girl Rising shares the stories of nine girls from developing countries.
Parties and Dinners
Charge your guests "admission" to your dinner party and put all the proceeds towards your fundraising goal.
Try a classic fundraiser like a car wash, garage sale, BBQ, can/bottle drive, bake sale, pancake breakfast or dress-down day at work or school.
Make your support for CARE part of an important event like a wedding or baby shower.
Hold a sports tournament, organize a bowling night, or play from the couch in support of your fundraiser.
Birthdays and Holidays
Ask your friends to donate to CARE instead of buying you a gift.
STEP #2: Create your own fundraising page and set a fundraising goal
