Ways to Fundraise

From live-stream challenges to virtual birthday parties, there are many ways you can have fun and raise money to support families. Here are some ideas to help inspire you to fundraise:

Host a live-stream challenge

Go live on social media to do something to engage and entertain your followers if you reach your fundraising goal (shave your head, do 100 squats, run 5k)

Host a virtual birthday party

Ask for donations in lieu of gifts. Host your birthday festivities using NetflixParty or the Houseparty app to have some fun while you’re at it!

Host a class

Live stream a class for other people to join. Ask people to make a donation to your fundraiser to access your class. (Zumba, dance lesson, art class, knitting tutorials, etc.)

The Impact of Your Efforts

Your success starts with a good plan. Choose a fundraising goal that appeals to you. Consider aiming for one of these milestones:


can support the Gift of Nights. This is the cost to house a family at the House for one night.


can support the cost of a home cooked meal to all families staying at RMHC Toronto.


can support the Gift of Nights to one family for 30 days, our average length of stay.

Consider sharing the link to your fundraising page on social media to raise even more money to support RMHC Toronto.
