Each year, caring individuals and groups raise money for Perley Health in their own creative way by hosting a Community Event. These events include everything from a lemonade stand in the park, a dart tournament, golf tournament, a curling bonspiel, to a benefit fashion show to name but a few.
If you are ready to organize your own event, please call Sara Francis at 613-526-7173 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. All it takes is a little creativity, some careful planning, and the desire to make a difference in the lives of the Seniors and Veterans who call Perley Health home.
We certainly try to attend as many events as we can. Please let us know when you would like a staff member or volunteer to attend your event.
We are happy to organize a cheque presentation either at your event or at the Perley Health Foundation during business hours from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
We may be able to provide a limited number of volunteers for your event.
All fundraising events for the benefit of Perley Health must be approved by the Perley Health Foundation.
You can direct your donation. However, non-designated funds are preferred as they help provide Perley Health with its most urgent needs. Please decide this in advance so you can communicate your wishes to those supporting your event. If the proceeds of the event are restricted, note that 20% of all Community Event proceeds are subject to be allocated to the Foundation’s highest priority needs, disbursed at the discretion of the Executive Director of the Foundation
All promotional materials for the proposed event must be approved by the Perley Health Foundation. Be sure to give yourself as much time as you can to promote your event. All event materials that include a solicitation must disclose the purpose for which the funds are being raised, and the Perley Health Foundation’s name and contact information.
The organizer will provide the Perley Health Foundation with the net proceeds of the event, along with an accounting, within twenty-one (21) days after the event is over. The accounting will include all proceeds, costs and donations (including gifts of goods or services) of the event.
Any expenses incurred in hosting the event are the responsibility of the organizer. It is a good idea to keep costs down as much as possible so your event can generate a bigger donation—something that makes all involved feel wonderful.
Donations of $10 or more are eligible for an official income tax receipt. Raffle tickets or merchandise (auction items) are not eligible for such receipts. Event organizers who solicit the general public for donations may NOT claim a tax receipt in his or her own name for the total amount raised. For more CRA tax guidelines please visit www.cra-arc.gc.ca. Please note that you are responsible for collecting the donors’ contact information and donation amount for tax receipt purposes.
Please note: In order to remain compliant regarding Canada’s Anti-spam Legislation, we need to inform you that when fundraising on our behalf, you should only solicit donations, participants, volunteers, or sponsors from individuals with which you have an existing relationship. If you are unsure about this legislation, please contact us for information.
