Host A Tireless Event

Tireless people everywhere, unite!

As host of a Tireless event in your neighbourhood, workplace, or community, you bring Canada closer to that wonderful goal of real and lasting gender equality. We thank you for enabling the impact of the tireless programs we support coast to coast.

You can lead an event on your own or with a group. The possibilities are endless. For example, you can:

• Ask people to donate to the cause for your birthday or anniversary instead of accepting gifts.
• Host a dinner or cocktail party and ask your guests to donate.
• Have a bake sale: recruit classmates and coworkers to bake their dishes and treats and sell them, donating the proceeds.
• Have weekly “dress down” or “dress up” days at school or work in exchange for a donation to the Foundation.
• And so much more — you can get creative!

Read the Tireless Event Toolkit for more ideas and information.

Read about some of the amazing people who have fundraised for the Canadian Women’s Foundation:

  • Aimee Quitevis Memorial Fund Volleyball Tournament
    Eighteen years ago Aimee Quitevis was murdered by her husband, who then took his own life. Aimee was a gifted athlete, community volunteer and volleyball coach. To keep her memory alive and raise funds to prevent domestic violence, her sister Athena – along with Aimee’s many friends and teammates – established the Aimee Quitevis Memorial Fund. Aimee loved volleyball, so they organized a charity tournament in her name. Her sister Athena says, “The credit really belongs to Aimee’s friends in the volleyball community. They are the blood sweat and tears of this event.” All funds raised through the tournament support the Canadian Women’s Foundation’s work to end violence. The tournament takes place in spring of each year.
  • Society of Beer Drinking Ladies
    The Society of Beer Drinking Ladies hosts ladies-only Bevies & Beer Festivals in venues across Toronto. The society brings women together, creating community using all things craft beer & cider. A portion of all ticket sales support the Canadian Women’s Foundation and the Foundation is proud to be the charity of choice for these sell-out events! To learn more and get tickets to upcoming events, visit or check them out on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
  • Ontario Ghostbusters
    The Ontario Ghostbusters are a fan-based costuming group that attends conventions and conferences across the GTA and raises funds for charities. To celebrate the release of the 2016 Ghostbusters movie and its cast of women, The Ontario Ghostbusters generously decided to raise funds for The Canadian Women’s Foundation. You can see more of their costumes and props on Instagram, and follow them on Facebook and Twitter to find out where to catch them next.
  • David Porteous – Singing for Awareness!
    David Porteous was 11 when he wrote his first song. Twenty years later, the Toronto musician has toured Canada and Europe, singing and playing guitar. When he released his album, “31,” David decided he would go on tour for a good cause. He embarked on a 10-show tour across Canada, with proceeds going to the Canadian Women’s Foundation. Why did he do it? The answer is simple, David says. “The Canadian Women’s Foundation directly affects women across the country and I admire the Foundation’s goals and desires to help women who deserve the well-needed support.” Check out his music at
  • Rishona Altenberg – This Girl is Rising!
    Ten-year-old Rishona Altenberg wanted to help empower girls. So she got busy. Very busy. She organized a screening of the documentary Girl Rising, found sponsors to cover her costs, baked cookies with friends to sell, asked local businesses to donate items for raffle prizes, sold tickets, and promoted the event wherever she went. She donated all of the proceeds to the Canadian Women’s Foundation and Room to Read Toronto. Click here to watch Rishona speak at her event.
  • Bad Girls Book Club
    The Bad Girls’ Book Club is a Toronto-based feminist book collective that hosts bi-monthly events and donates proceeds to charities including the Canadian Women’s Foundation. For more details and for tickets to their events, visit their website at:
