Friend-to-Friend Fundraising

Educator's tour photoThanks for your interest in holding a Friend-to-Friend fundraiser for Canadian Foodgrains Bank!

Our Friend-to-Friend donation pages are an online way that you can invite your friends, family, co-workers, teammates, church members, staff, customers, neighbours, relatives—anyone and everyone, near-and-far—to support your efforts to help those who don’t have enough to eat.

Setting up a Friend-to-Friend page is easy; just click on the Friend-to-Friend page button at the bottom on the page and fill out the form. After agreeing to the terms and conditions, you can click on submit and your fundraising idea will be sent to the Foodgrains Bank for approval.

Once approved, your page will go live and you will receive an e-mail from us with the link to your page—which you can then send to your friends so they can donate to your fundraiser.

And what kind of fundraisers can you hold? Pretty much anything—walk-athons, bike–athons, sing-athons, or anything-athon.

Or you could put on a fundraising concert, coffeehouse, supper, poetry-reading, or any other kind of event, and charge admission or solicit donations from people who can physically be there—and invite those who can’t come to make a donation towards your fundraising goal by using your Friend-to-Friend page.

Or maybe it’s for a wedding, birthday, anniversary, retirement or some other special occasion—in lieu of gifts, people can go to your Friend-to-Friend page and make a donation in honor of your event to the Foodgrains Bank.

It’s also great for Christmas; you can tell people what you really want this year is for people to have enough to eat. A donation through your Friend-to-Friend page will be your gift to those who struggle to get enough food.

In short, we’re open to any and all ideas!

Again, thanks for considering how you can be part of our effort to end global hunger. We look forward to hearing from you!
