Community fundraiser ideas

Bake sales and lemonade stands

Host a bake sale or lemonade stand in your neighbourhood and donate the proceeds to help WWF-Canada protect wildlife and habitats in Canada and beyond.


Host a cocktail party, dinner or brunch for friends, family, neighbours and co-workers. Charge a cover fee, which will be donated to WWF-Canada.

Arts, crafts and second-hand sales

Create your own artistic masterpieces or donate unused items from your home to help build a future where people and nature thrive. Organize a garage or street sale with proceeds going to WWF-Canada and invite your neighbourhood to join you.


Plan a community cleanup event to keep your local park, neighbourhood or shoreline healthy. Ask participants to fundraise for WWF-Canada by joining your team fundraising page.

Change drive

Host a change-for-change drive by reaching out to friends, family and neighbours for spare change, or collect coins in a donation jar at a community event such as a street party or farmers market.
