Third Party Fundraising

Third Party Fundraising includes everything from hosting your own fundraising event (garage sale, dinner, swim-athon…) to selling a product or service – and donating a portion of the proceeds to Citizens’ Counselling Centre.

This can be a great way to do good and have fun doing it. We have online tools through CanadaHelps for tracking, promoting and receipting events that we’d be very happy to use to help make your event easy to organize and manage.  The tax receipt for the donation of the proceeds from third party events such as a garage sale or dinner show is issued to the person(s) who donates the funds.
