What is a Third Party Fundraiser?

Third Party Fundraisers are events or campaigns organized and run by community-minded organizations and individuals to raise funds for a charity or cause.

Here are some of the different kinds of third party fundraisers you can organize to support LOVE’s violence prevention organization.

Examples of FundraisersProud ECHOage Partner

Holiday Party/Birthday Party

Teach your child the importance of giving back to their community and have guests donate to LOVE in addition to or in lieu of gifts. To make donation management easier, you can even use our Echoage page

Employer-Employee Matching Gift

Employees can make donations count even more! Some employers match donations made by their staff with an equal donation on behalf of the company.

Runs, Walks or Cycling Fundraisers

Runs, walks or cycling fundraisers raise money through gaining pledges via a network of people.

Raffles and Auctions

Raffles, candy grams and secret auctions give individuals and organizations an opportunity to create a fun community event while aligning with a great cause.

Most recently, a group of employees at Woodbine Entertainment Group raised funds to support LOVE programs as part of #WEGCares. Their team sold Candygrams on Valentine’s day to support LOVE’s programs in Rexdale.

Sporting/Entertainment Events

Organize a golf/sports tournament or music concert in support LOVE.

Tax Receipts for Third Party Fundraisers

Please note, LOVE is only able to provide tax receipts for donations and not for ticket sales or expected donations.  Likewise, raffle tickets, candy grams and secret auctions will only receive a tax receipt for the final donation amount made to LOVE; actual raffle ticket sales, cost of the candies, and secret auction item costs are not tax receipted donations. Entertainment or artists booking fees are not considered a donation and therefore cannot be accounted for in a tax receipt. Please contact LOVE for more information should you have any questions.
