donors have given to events, raising


Weddings, anniversaries, birthdays parties…sometimes a celebration is a ready-made fundraising event!

Of course, you can always request that guests make a donation in lieu of gifts, but don’t be afraid to dare to celebrate by adding a memorable fundraising element to your party.

Door prizes, raffles, contests…anything that adds to the fun can also add to your fundraising goal.


  • Hosting a Theme Party? Ask for donations instead of hostess gifts.
  • Participate in a Date Auction and donate the money raised.
  • Hosting a Fashion Show? Donate proceeds from ticket and garment sales.


Have a tournament-style fundraiser in mind?

These fundraisers allow you to host an event that has multiple fundraising teams playing against each other —and may need additional website support. Let us help you make it happen! Please complete the Tournament Application Form and we will contact you to confirm the details and offer advice.


Tools, advice and resources — just for you

If you’re ready with an idea — big or small, traditional or out-of-the-ordinary — or need help developing one, we’re ready to help with the tools, resources and advice you need to be a success!

I asked my guests to donate to Heart and Stroke Foundation each time they said the word ‘baby’ at my baby shower. We raised $500.00!

An estimated 1.6 million Canadians are living with heart disease or stroke.
You can change that!

Our Birthday Hero!

Evan donated half his birthday money ($105) because his aunt has problems with her heart and he wanted to help people like her.
