Get Involved- Host a Fundraiser!
There are so many ways in which you can support and raise awareness about the Leacock Foundation, while involving your family, friends and co-workers. By hosting a third party event and raising funds, you can directly support an educational project at the Get Ahead Project Schools in South Africa or one of our many youth literacy and leadership programs in Toronto.
Third party events are organized by an individual, business or community group to help raise funds for a cause. Your fundraising event could be a BBQ, golf tournament, birthday/holiday party, garage sale, bake sale or dress down day – the list of ideas is endless and we encourage you to be creative!
Some suggestions to consider:
- Before organizing your event, approach your employer to see if they have a matching gift program. Many employers will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. This is an easy way to double your fundraising efforts!
- If you are planning your child’s birthday party, a great online tool called EchoAge makes it easy for you to send out invitations, track RSVPs and send thank you notes. Using this program, children have the opportunity to support a charity of their choice. For more information, please Click Here!
Before planning your event, please complete an Event Proposal Form and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org for approval.
