Host a Fundraiser

Hosting your own event in support of Covenant House Toronto shows youth who are experiencing homelessness, trafficking or are at risk that someone believes in them.

In joining this movement, you are showing that you believe every young person matters. You are creating hope in the lives of hundreds of youth each day.

Our DIY fundraising platform, Creating the Possible, makes it easy to create your own fundraising campaign, personalize your page and share with your friends and family.

Host an event at home, in your community or virtually and bring your friends, family and colleagues together to support youth in need.

In need of creative fundraising ideas? We’ve outlined fundraising events of all types on our DIY fundraising toolkit here, including:

  • Ask for donations in lieu of gifts at your next birthday,
  • Organize a holiday raffle, bake sale or craft show, and donate a portion of the proceeds,
  • Host a walk-a-thon, workshop, or paint and sip night with friends and family!
  • For students: Organize a Student Sleep Out or partake in the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) program facilitated through your school.
