Fundraise Your Way

Imagine the difference you can make in the lives of children and youth here in Calgary and area.

When six-year-old Hisham decided to ask for donations to Closer to Home instead of birthday gifts for himself, he knew it would make a positive impact on other kids his age. Because of his generosity, kids like Zander will have the resources they need to succeed, like a new backpack and important supplies to get him through the school year.

You Can Make a Difference

Thank you for choosing to raise awareness and funds for the people we serve.

Here are two different ways you can get started.

  1. Create your own challenge. Have you always wanted to ride a bike for charity? Swim a hundred laps? Bake and sell 100 muffins? You can quickly and easily set up your custom fundraising page and invite your friends, family and colleagues to support your efforts to make a difference for others.  
  2. Host your own community or corporate fundraiser. Inspire others to join you in hosting a backyard barbeque, a dance-a-thon or yoga-thon, or even a games night at your home or community hall. Proceeds raised from your event can positively impact vulnerable families here in Calgary.
