BE INVOLVEDHOSTING YOUR OWN FUNDRAISING EVENTS
If you feel passionate about our work, and would like to contribute, we invite and challenge you to do so. Any group that would like to raise money for Sanctuary for Kids, in any fashion they choose, will be able to share their experience on our community blog. Just send us updates and photos and we will gladly post them
Many people have asked what they can personally do to raise money for Sanctuary for Kids. We feel honoured that you would like to organize an event which would benefit us. You can get as creative as you would like. Many supporters have used their talent in the creation of crafts to raise money for S4K
Perhaps achieve a personal goal and get people to sponsor you, bike, run, swim and invite friends to join you. We love the idea of people improving their health while raising money for S4K.
Please check out previous inventive success stories on our community blog.
Promoting Your Event
We ask you to follow a few simple guidelines for promoting your event:
First, your promotional material must always make clear that Sanctuary for Kids is the beneficiary of the money raised at the fundraising event. We are never a sponsor or partner or organizer of the event itself. This is very important and, thus, we ask that you send us all of your promotional material prior to printing or distribution.
Second, use of the Sanctuary for Kids logo also requires our express consent.
Third, you can be as creative as you want in fundraising ideas, but we cannot sanction any merchandise related to ‘branded media’.
Please understand, we are honoured that you would like to give your time and energy to our organization and help us in this way. We are so grateful. Nonetheless, legal considerations prevent us from having you represented (in posters, or programs, or invitations) as “agents” or “representatives” or “co-sponsors” of S4K. This is why we must insist on these clarifications.
