Fundraise

Join the global movement of AMREF supporters around the world whose fundraising initiatives help us change lives by providing better health care for vulnerable  communities in over 30 African counties.

Stand Up for African MothersFundraising for AMREF is a fun and easy way to harness your creativity and network of friends and family for a great cause. 

Host an Event -Whether you want to pledge your birthday or raise money by participating in a run/walk/bike-a-thon, the possibilities are virtually endless.    

Here are some ideas of events you can host:

Garage or Bake sale, BBQ, Movie nights, sports tournaments, lunch money donation, trivia night.


Pledge your birthday, wedding, anniversary, graduation, mother’s day, Christmas, or any other special occasion or holiday.  Use your special occasion or a holiday as an opportunity to be selfless!  Instead of gifts, ask that your friends and family donate to AMREF on your behalf. 

Pub night – talk to the manager at your favourite watering hole about donating the cover charge to AMREF in exchange for some new patrons

Auction – host a charity auction and invite all of your friends and family to participate.  If you’re short on auction items, try a service auction.  Offer up your skills and talents for a reasonable price (lawn maintenance, driveway shoveling or dog walking). Service auctions are always a big crowd pleaser.

All you need is a little creativity to plan the perfect fundraising event in your community. If you need any help planning your event, call Shane at 416-961-6981 (toll-free at 1-888-318-4442) or email him.

We can’t wait to help support your next event.
