Organize a fundraising event to support our mission and programs
We are honoured to count on the support of individuals and groups who organize fundraising events to support our mission and programs. These third-party events are organized and managed independently by people who want to raise money for our cause.
Looking for fundraising ideas? From auctions to bake sales to sports and dance events . . . let your imagination run wild! The money you raise will go to our mission or the program of your choice. Get your event approved by filling out our third-party event form. For more information, please contact us at 514-933-5599 ext. 226. Thank you for your support.
If you have an idea for a fundraiser please read this:
First, make sure your event or fundraising activity has been approved by Share the Warmth. Get in touch a few weeks before your event, or if it is a larger event with a large crowd (wine tasting, silent auction or benefit-dinner), please contact us at least a month before. Please note that if an alcohol permit is required, it is solely your responsibility to apply for the permit with the Régie des alcools, des courses et des jeux du Québec.
If you want to use the Share the Warmth logo for your event or to advertise your event on your website or on social media, please ensure that you use the latest Share the Warmth logo. We can send you this in jpeg or ai at your request. You will want to clearly indicate what you are asking people to contribute to. Here are a few examples.
- $2 of every sale will be donated to Share the Warmth
- Your donation goes directly to Share the Warmth (you may wish to specify a specific program)
- For every sale of $100 or more, a coat will be donated to Share the Warmth
- Food donations will go to the Food Bank at Share the Warmth
We will want to see your proofs before you use them at large.
Depending on your event and type of donations, Share the Warmth can issue receipts for income tax purposes for donations of $20 or more. To do so, we need a complete list of donors and their contact information. You, as the organizer, are responsible for completing this list and sending it to us as soon as your event is completed. You do not receive a tax receipt as an organizer unless you also made a donation over $20. For more information on receipting, please read this page.
We will need the complete name, address, phone number and email address of each person who donated more than $20 if they wish to receive a tax receipt.
Please consult the Canada Revenue Agency website for more information on receipting. Share the Warmth acts in accordance with all relevant charitable laws and insists that all its events do so as well.
You will want to make sure to dot all your i’s and cross all your t’s to ensure everyone who donated gets a receipt, and that you and your supporters are acknowledged. Please make sure to communicate all relevant information to Share the Warmth so that we can do this!
If you took photographs, please send us a few so that we may post them on social media, in our newsletter or annual report. If you are advertising your event, make sure to include Share the Warmth through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram or any other way that holds your fancy! It’s important to respect everyone’s wishes, so please make sure you ask permission before you snap anyone’s picture.
