How To Start A Fundraiser

The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) is more than a hospital. It's a catalyst for change. We are able to respond to urgent needs and put your donations to work answering some of the most complex questions in medical science. And we transform lives in the process. Organize a virtual fundraiser in support of CAMH and help create a world where we can all say “Mental Health is Health” and truly mean it. Whether you already have an idea or you need inspiration, we will guide you through the planning process and provide you with the tools, resources and support to organize a successful fundraiser.

Make a Difference

Go forward knowing your virtual fundraiser will help transform how our communities think about mental health and will support research, teaching, clinical care and treatment for the one in five Canadians who experience mental illness in any given year.

Why Get Involved?

By holding your own fundraiser in support of CAMH, you will be leading the charge to break down stigma and discover the causes and cures for mental illness.

Your support matters

One in two Canadians experience mental illness by the time they reach 40 years of age. Your support will help change attitudes and shape a world where people with mental illness receive the level of care they need and deserve.

You will make an impact

Every dollar you raise helps drive innovative research, access to new and promising treatments, and a shared understanding among all Canadians that Mental Health is Health.
