5 Fundraising Ideas in Vancouver

in May 6, 2020

One of the coolest ways to help your group fund new activities is to organize a fundraising event.

If you are a part of a School PAC, Swim Club or Church Group, you know what I am talking about.

With fundraising you can run so many new programs and create so many new enhancements that benefit your kids and colleagues, that without them you would not be able to.

With such a Community Driven Spirit in Vancouver, I still wonder why it is so hard to find easy and organized fundraising ideas for parents and organizers.

Based on my personal experience, this job is so hard to the person in charge of fundraising, mainly because there is so much work involved to make this happen and because this is a volunteer position, the person making this happen is always alone, having no help from other members of the group.

So setting up a movie night and bake sale, is not as easy and smooth as people think!

So we decided to compile a list of 5 great fundraising ideas in Vancouver that we have experienced so far:



Vancouver Best Cookies Fundraising- Chipotle

Chipotle’s fundraising programs are great.  You register your club, school or institution at their website, pick a location, set a date and they will reserve that slot for you. They will count 33% of their proceeds to all sales generated in that time slot, makes a purchase and mentions your group.

Once the time frame is complete, they will email you a few days later and inform how many dollars you earned and they will submit a cheque to your institution.

This is actually pretty cool for swim clubs, soccer teams and any sports group. Not only the food is healthy and affordable, but it’s a great chance for teammates to bond over a good tasty burrito.

Just be aware that the program can done twice a year in a 6 months span.

Vancouver Best Cookies Fundraising- Rakuten Flipgive

Now when you shop you can earn cashback and direct them to your charity or institution of your choice.

Websites such as Flipgive and Rakuten, allow you to direct the cashback earned from your shopping towards your group. You can create a campaign on their website for a period. Once this period is finished, they will tally the amount raised and transfer the money to the groups bank account.

The best part of this is that you are able to connect shopping websites such as Amazon, Nike, Lululemon, Staples, Indigo and so forth…so you know you are shopping at reputable retailers and contribute to your cause.

Cashback earning range from 1% to up to 10% sometimes depending on the retailer. Over time, this can go far!
