Host a Fundraiser

Be a catalyst for change by hosting a fundraiser and support lifesaving, frontline work

Empower yourself and your community while supporting 24/7 mental health support in BC.

Here are some easy and fun fundraising ideas to get you started:

  • Host a themed party: Celebrate a holiday, sports game, or cultural event with your friends and family, requesting donations instead of gifts.
  • Organize a skill-sharing workshop: Share your expertise in cooking, painting, crafts, or fitness, charging a participation fee that benefits the Centre.
  • Challenge yourself: Participate in a physical or mental challenge, like a run, bike ride, or gaming marathon, asking for sponsorships or donations based on your progress.
  • Get creative online: Start a virtual fundraiser through social media platforms like Facebook or Instagram, allowing friends and family to donate directly.
  • Host a game night: Organize a board game or video game tournament with entry fees or a minimum donation.
  • Hold a bake sale or car wash: Offer delicious treats or car cleaning services at your local park or community centre, accepting donations in exchange.

Benefits of hosting a fundraiser:

  • Make a direct impact: Your efforts directly support the Crisis Centre’s vital services for individuals and communities struggling with mental health challenges.
  • Raise awareness: Promote mental health conversations and resources within your network, fostering understanding and support.
  • Have fun and connect: Organize an event that brings people together for a good cause, fostering a sense of community and purpose.

Our Impact The topic and word "suicide" is not so scary after taking a training from the Crisis Centre of BC. I'm grateful to have been here today, and am hopeful that I can help people in the future. safeTALK participant, Agassiz
