Fundraising is an exciting way to use your skills, talents and expertise. It can get you out of your comfort zone and connect you to those around you while raising money for those who are navigating their most vulnerable moments with Distress Centres. 


Third-Party Events

If you're planning a third-party event our team would be happy to work with and support you in your efforts!
We have been fortunate to receive proceeds from events organized by individuals and groups from across Toronto. We appreciate their creative efforts and hard work in hosting events ranging from golf tournaments to bowling parties, marathons to birthday celebrations, and wedding designations to art auctions. If you are interested in putting on an event, we will be happy to assist you with Distress Centres information and materials. 
Once you tell us about your fundraising plans, Erin will reach out to you to help support you in any way that we can. You can reach Erin directly by emailing her at or calling her at 416-595-7541.

Please register your event by filling out the third-party event registration form online here or download the Third Party Event application form and return this by e-mail to
