Donate Your Day
During this global pandemic, please think about how you can host your fundraiser safely and in accordance with your local public health guidelines. The ideas below can be adapted for smaller, physically distanced groups or as virtual experiences.
If you’d like to make a real difference on your big day, ask your friends and family to make a donation in your honour to CAMH, in lieu of gifts. Whether it’s a birthday, wedding, anniversary, graduation or retirement, celebrate your day by raising funds to help CAMH tackle the most complex mental health challenges. And all donors will receive a tax receipt for their contribution.
Birthdays: Whether you’re having a party of some kind or not, you can get the word out to friends and family that this year, you’d prefer they make a donation directly to CAMH. Feel great about celebrating this year’s birthday!
Anniversaries: Is this year a milestone? Often people don’t know what to get couples who are celebrating. They want it to be meaningful and impactful, and to honour two important people. What better way than to ask for a donation to an organization and cause near and dear to your hearts?
Retirements: Often at this stage of life, people aren’t looking for more ‘stuff’! Let your colleagues know that you’d prefer a more significant honouring of your retirement with a donation to support mental health.
Weddings and Wedding Showers: Some brides and grooms aren’t looking for more items for their household especially if they are already combining two homes’ worth of things! Ask guests to make a contribution to support mental health instead. If you’d like to take it a step further, you can also make a donation to CAMH instead of providing your guests with favours!
Baby Showers: Some parents are feeling really conscientious about how much their kids need! More and more families are sharing baby toys and clothes, which makes less of a need for store-bought items. Help support the mental health of their futures with donations to CAMH.
Graduation: Education can take a toll on students’ mental health so what better way to honour your child’s graduation and moving on to the next phase of their life than a donation in their honour?
