Online & In-Person Fundraising

This is one of the easiest and most effective ways to fundraise!

Players can post their individual and/or team fundraising pages on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIN to collect donations online.

Your individual and team fundraising page URLs are:

  • canproam.ca/teamname

Visit your fundraising centre to send out emails to friends & family to support your campaign! We provide template emails to make this process easy.

Or simply send your friends & family a message from your regular personal email account and provide a link to your fundraising page:

  • canproam.ca/firstnamelastname
  • canproam.ca/teamname

Ask friends, family & coworkers to support your cause in person!

Download and print out our Offline Pledge Form to collect all the information that you need when doing so.

Host a pub night, BBQ or special event as a team!

Conduct a 50/50 draw, raffle or pool at your office!

The options are endless!
