Your efforts are essential in YANA’s mission to support children and families having to leave the Comox Valley for medical treatment. A quarter of our annual income comes from fundraisers just like this.
When you choose to plan a fundraiser, you have the opportunity to incorporate your interests and creativity. We encourage you to have fun and are here to support you and answer any questions you may have.
You can achieve two goals for YANA
Raising money is not the only important benefit of third party fundraisers. Your fundraising efforts are also very important in building community awareness about YANA. Your efforts may change the lives of a family by simply letting them know about what we do.
We’d love to help
We want to support you as best we can. We can provide the following to your fundraising activities:
- the YANA logo to promote your fundraiser
- YANA donation cans
- a roll up banner or other YANA signage
- brochures outlining our services
- pledge forms
- online fundraising platform through Canada Helps (ask us more about this)
- a volunteer representative to attend your event or make a presentation about the work YANA does
- a representative for an official cheque presentation
We encourage you to post your fundraising initiative on YANA’s facebook page and to submit press releases, make posters and utilize social media to promote your fundraiser.
Please submit promotional material utilizing the YANA name and/or logo for approval prior to production or distribution.
If you are planning a fundraiser for us, we would love to know about it. Please fill out and submit a third party fundraising form prior to your fundraiser. If you’d prefer, phone us and we can get started over the phone.
