Host a Fundraiser

Why Host a Fundraiser

Every year individuals and groups from all across Ontario host their own fundraisers in support of our Foundation. As a children’s charity that does not receive any government funding, we rely solely on the kindness and generosity of individuals, corporations, special events and Foundations to make tough days a little brighter for children receiving medical care in Canada. Whether it’s a birthday, bake sale or event, thank you for making a difference!
