Fundraiser Examples

Timmies and Tampons.png

Janice and her family ran a fundraiser called “Timmies and Tampons" that raised over $1,400 to buy Tim Hortons gift cards and menstrual products for our community.  

 

"A lot of people Boyle Street helps are from the Treaty 8 territory just like me, and I want to help my brothers and sisters as much as I can. I loved being able to show my sons that we can give back to the community by  helping vulnerable Indigenous women. Showing them how much our fundraiser helped was really positive." -Janice

Jeff, Scott and Dan from Cheshire Productions hosted the "12 DJays of Cheshmas," a virtual fundraiser which featured local musicians. Each day for the 12 days, Cheshire released a new single by an Edmonton artist, accessible online by donation.

 

"Our favorite part was being able to support local artists while creating something positive that engaged the Edmonton community!" -Scott Putnam, Co-Owner of Cheshire Productions

This virtual event raised $1,800 for Boyle Street and supported the local music scene.
