Host a Third-Party Fundraiser

Pride Toronto welcomes local community groups, businesses, individuals and others who wish to host fundraising events (“Third-Party Fundraising”), where all or a portion of the proceeds go to Pride Toronto. Third-Party Fundraising is an incredibly effective – and fun! – way to support the 2SLGBTQI+ communities of our city and beyond. 

How Pride Toronto Can Support Your Fundraiser

Once your Third-Party Fundraiser is approved, Pride Toronto is happy to offer some of our resources to make your initiative successful. Here is a list of what Pride Toronto can and cannot do to support your fundraising activity. 

Pride Toronto can…

  • Offer advice and resources on how to organize your fundraiser.
  • Promote your fundraiser on our Facebook and Instagram stories. Addition promotion is available on a case-by-case basis.
  • Provide permission for Third-Party Fundraisers to be promoted as “In support of Pride Toronto” and use Pride Toronto’s official logo. 
  • Depending on the committed minimum fundraising goal, location, and staff availability, a representative from Pride Toronto may attend an in-person fundraiser.
  • Send a request to our volunteer list to promote the volunteering opportunity.
  • List your active Third-Party Fundraiser on our website, and list you as a Fundraiser on our Donor Wall (currently in development)

Pride Toronto cannot…

  • Issue charitable tax receipts for donations.
  • Provide the contact information of our newsletter subscribers, members, board members, sponsors, partners, etc.
  • Fund or reimburse any costs associated with your Third-Party Fundraiser.
  • Print promotional materials for your fundraising activity.
  • Guarantee the attendance of staff or volunteers at an in-person fundraising event.
  • Apply for gaming licenses (e.g. bingos, raffles, liquor, insurance) for a fundraising campaign or event.
  • Provide media coverage and support.
  • Solicit individuals or companies for donations or sponsorships on your behalf.

Please read our Third-Party Fundraising Guidelines for more details (including timeframes).
