Where will the event take place?

When will the event take place?
How will the money be collected?
Avoid fronting your own money but feel free to approach potential sponsors or partners for support.
Ask yourself:
What expenses will need to be incurred to make my fundraiser happen?
Who can I ask to be a corporate sponsor?

Where can I find potential sources of revenue?
Should I draft a budget?

STEP 3


Get the word out!
There are many ways to leverage the visibility of your event by reaching out to friends, family, colleagues and the general public. Remember: the more people you get involved, the greater your chances your fundraiser will be a success!
Send emails to your network of contacts and invite them to make an online donation. This part is a snap once your personalized fundraising page is up and running.
Ask the Club for free official promotional materials (posters, balloons, donation boxes, brochures, etc.).
The local media can be an excellent source of publicity. Ask around!
You are allowed to use the Breakfast Club of Canada logo BUT you must run all materials by us BEFORE they go out, so we can make sure they are in keeping with our image and our values. For more information, ask your fundraising advisor or read the most recent version of our standards guidelines

STEP 4


Send us the proceeds
Please forward all offline donations via a cheque made out to Breakfast Club of Canada within 60 days of your event, confirming the total amount raised, your name, the name of your fundraiser and the name of your fundraising advisor.

STEP 5


Say thank you!
Once your activity has wrapped up, it is important to take a moment to thank all those who contributed to its success. Let them know what the final outcome is, and be sure to invite them to consider renewing their generosity at your next event.
