Tribute Gifts – Celebrate or Honour Someone
A tribute gift is a wonderful way to celebrate a wedding, anniversary, birthday, teacher or honour the memory of someone special.
You can donate online, mail in a cheque to the Child Witness Centre, 111 Duke Street East, Kitchener, N2H 1A4, or contact us at 519-744-0904.
3rd Party Events – Host an Event
No event is too big or too small. Turn your event into a fundraiser. A 3rd party event is one in which someone (a group of people, a company, a service club) runs an event on our behalf. Hosting an event in support of the Child Witness Centre is a great way to help raise funds and also increase awareness. If you are interested in hosting a Third-Party event on our behalf or want to find out more on how you can help us, please contact Sally Sarachman, Director of Development, by email or by phone (519) 744-0904 ext 218.
Matching Funds – Ask your Employer
Many companies will match an employee’s donation or time spent volunteering with a financial gift. If your employer has a matching gift program, obtain the necessary forms from your employer. Matching gifts are initiated by the employee and are an easy way to double your donation.
Corporate Sponsorship – It’s a win/win
By sponsoring the Child Witness Centre through one of our programs or events, your company or organization helps children and youth in our community, while also increasing your visibility in the community.
We are looking for sponsors for our:
- Annual Youth Symposium, help inspire more than 3,000 Grade Eight students each year.
- Annual Pancake Lunch, an event attended by more than 400 individuals offering a wonderful networking opportunity.
If you are interested in sponsoring one of the above programs or want more information, please contact Linda Mark at 519-744-0904 or firstname.lastname@example.org. She will be happy to provide you with any additional information and answer any questions.
