“I feel richer as a person for becoming part of the cause through my community event, IforCommunity Project and I continue to be a champion for the Children’s Aid Foundation.” – Bart Zych, IforCommunity Project

Host a Community Event

You can make a difference in the lives of children and youth by hosting a community event.

Get Involved!
Hosting a community event is a fun way to support the Children’s Aid Foundation while taking part in our transformative work to empower Canada’s most vulnerable children and youth. We can’t do it alone! We need community event ambassadors to share the importance of supporting Canada’s  young people interacting with the child welfare system. You can inspire your friends, family, colleagues and broader community to learn about the challenges these children and youth face each day.

Get Inspired!
From bake sales to benefit concerts, from yoga-thons to Super Bowl parties and everything in between, community events allow you to support disadvantaged children and youth in your own unique way. To get started, take a look at our Community Events toolkit.

Workplace fundraising is also a great way to spread awareness about the obstacles faced by young people involved with the child welfare system in Canada, while having some fun during the workday. Hold a silent auction, office Olympic Games or a dress down day. For more ideas, take a look at our Workplace Fundraising toolkit.

Through dress-down days, school dances or by selling candy-grams, raise money to support Canadian kids in care by organizing a fundraising event at your school. To find out how to get involved, take a look at our School Fundraising toolkit.
