FUNDRAISING IDEAS

Without people like you, The Charles H. Best Diabetes Centre would not be able to continue providing the best-in-class programs, education and management support we are passionate about.

 

There's no limit to the different ways you can personally help raise funds and awareness in support of The Charles H. Best Diabetes Centre and Type 1 Diabetes, itself. Turn your favourite fun activities into fundraisers. The possibilities are endless! Click HERE for steps to organizing a successful fundraiser.

CREATE YOUR OWN PERSONAL CAMPAIGN

 

Whether it's celebrating a birthday, honouring a loved one, starting up a swear jar, or organizing a trivia night, you can start your own fundraising campaign and have friends, family and colleagues sponsor you towards raising funds for your worthy cause. It's easy to do in just a few simple steps:

 

  1. Choose a theme for your fundraising campaign.

  2. Set a goal and we can help you create an online campaign page.

  3. Spread the word and invite people to donate.

 

Some ideas to get you started:

- Change your email signature to include a link to your fundraising page.

- Start up a spare change jar at work, at home, at your gym.

- Ask your family and friends for donations.

TAKE CHARGE WITH A COMMUNITY EVENT

 

Whether it's a community BBQ, car wash, bake sale, yard sale, craft sale, pancake breakfast, lemonade stand, bottle drive, pub night, or silent auction / raffle, you can start your own fundraising campaign and have friends, family and colleagues sponsor you towards raising funds for your worthy cause. Every dollar makes a difference, and no event is too small. Our cause is urgent.  The time for action is now.

 

Some ideas to get you started:​

Ask your favourite coffee shop or restaurant manager to support your cause by donating a percentage of one day's revenues if you provide the waitstaff support.

MAKE CHANGE WITH A CHALLENGE EVENT

Put your passion into play! Whether it's a challenging sporting activity, bowling tournament, golf tournament, baseball tournament, or polar ice dip, you can start your own challenge event and have friends, family and colleagues sponsor you towards raising funds for your worthy cause.

Some ideas to get you started:

- Ask your baseball, basketball, bowling league to support your efforts.

- Sign up for a race that challenges you, and ask for pledges for every km completed.​

Your generous support will help us keep our programs and services current and accessible, so we can continue to keep our children, youth and adults living with Type 1 diabetes healthy until a cure is found.

 

If you have an idea for a fundraising event, we would be happy to discuss it with you to help make your event successful, fun and truly memorable. To discuss or plan an event please contact Marla at marla@charleshbest.com or 905.620.0360 

 

We look forward to hearing from you!
