Host your own fundraiser

Support women, girls and gender-diverse people in Canada by hosting a fundraiser in your community.

There are so many creative ways, virtually and in-person, to rally friends, family and colleagues around gender equality. No fundraiser is too big or too small. Every dollar you raise will make a difference!

Here are some ideas to help inspire you:

  • Celebrate a Special Occasion: Ask friends and family to donate in lieu of giving you gifts for your birthday, graduation or anniversary.
  • Host a Book Club or Game Night: Gather for a fun activity and make a collective donation every time you meet.
  • Create a Fitness Challenge: Walk 10,000 steps every day, cycling, running, or hiking, and ask for pledges along the way.

Below are some recent fundraisers held in support of the Canadian Women’s Foundation:
