DIY Fundraising Made Easy

You Can Make a Big Impact

You can increase your impact by sharing the cause that is close to your heart with your friends and family. Personal fundraising is a great demonstration of how every dollar can make a big difference.

If you are running a fundraising event, have a celebration coming up, or simply want to do good for your community, our online fundraising pages are an easy do-it-yourself solution to seeking donations from your family and friends.

A Few Ways To Fundraise:

  • In Celebration. Invite your loved ones to celebrate your birthday, wedding, new baby, graduation, by making a donation to your very own page.
  • In Tribute. Honour the memory of a loved one, a special caregiver, someone who’s made a difference in your life.
  • With a group. Gather friends and colleagues from your office, book club, sports league, service club and launch a unique campaign to make a difference in your community.
  • With an event. Host an event to raise money for KGH Foundation. Learn More About Event Fundraising.

3 Easy Steps To Online Personal Fundraising:

KGH Foundation employs a robust, easy-to-use online crowd-sourcing donation platform to help you raise money. It’s the easy way to DIY Fundraise and make a difference. This puts fundraising at your fingertips. Whether you want to encourage gifts in your honour to commemorate a special event such as a Birthday or Anniversary, or plan a full-scale virtual event where teams go head-to-head to see who can raise the most, or you simply want to share your fundraising page with your friends and family to make a difference, we make it easy

1. SET UP YOUR PAGE

Select from the below causes to be brought to our online fundraising system designed to allow you to easily fundraise for KGH Foundation. Select one of the following options and then click on ‘Create a Page’. You will be guided, step-by-step in creating your online fundraiser.

2. SET A GOAL

There are a variety of ways to come up with a realistic fundraising goal that you can meet or beat. Consider how many people you expect to give and how much they might give and use that number. Or, come up with a number that is representative of something you might do (Ie. I will run a 5K if I raise 5K).

Having a goal will keep you motivated and will encourage your supporters to help you have maximum impact.

You can also lead by example and kick things off with a donation so you can show how gifts will show up on your page.

3. SHARE YOUR FUNDRAISER

You can increase the amount of funds you raise by sharing your fundraising page with your friends and family.

Once you have set up your page, you will be provided with a link to your page. Simply share this page with your network and they can easily donate online to your cause.

We encourage you to share why you’re fundraising and how together, you can make a big difference.

“People always ask why, but maybe they should ask why not! You get to work with the nicest people, for the nicest people. It’s the best kind of job satisfaction you’ll ever find.”

“I am inspired by how selfless people are – caring for others who they have never met and whose story they may never know.  But yet they give generously to make the situation of others better.  I have so much respect for those who act to make the world a better place.  In the end it’s all that matters.”
