Each year the pride & remembrance run selects community charities who receive the charitable pledges. In the past, the pride & remembrance run has raised over $1.8 million for charities. 

Tax receipts will be issued for all donations of $20 or more. The registration fee helps to offset operational and organizational costs of the run. In accordance with Canada Customs and Revenue Agency regulations, the registration fee does not qualify for charitable tax receipts.

fundraising tips

1.   Set a goal  
Whether its $100, $500, or more – set a goal for yourself! This will help to motivate both you and the people you’re inviting to donate to your cause. Break your goal up into smaller pieces, and give yourself easy-to-reach targets. 

2.   Ask!  
That old adage “nothing ventured, nothing gained” rings especially true when it comes to fundraising. You’ll probably be surprised by how many people are interested in supporting a good cause if given the chance. So get out there and give them that opportunity!

3.   Get motivated  
Everything is more fun with friends! Create a team with a group of your friends or coworkers and help to motivate one another to meet your fundraising goals. More of a go-it-alone type? Why not invite a friend (or frenemy) to compete in a fundraising challenge? Loser treats for post-run drinks!    

4.   Make it personal  
Why are you participating in the Pride & Remembrance Run? Let people know why this event is important to you, and how their donations can make a difference in Toronto’s LGBTQ+ community. Keep your supporters updated on your fundraising efforts, and your preparations as the run gets closer - whether it’s training up for the 5K, or turning out with your most fabulous athleisure look.  

 5.   Start early
Let’s face it: people are busy! That means that they might not see your calls for donations, or remember to follow up after your first, second - or even fifth - ask. Starting early ensures you have enough time to get your message across and accomplish your goal.  

6.   Host an event 
Talking to people face-to-face is by far the best way to inspire donations, and events are one of the best ways to find an opening. Whether it’s a low-key bakesale at your office, a spring picnic, or an upscale dinner party, events are a great way to raise awareness and enthusiasm.
