What is a Third Party Fundraiser?

Initiating a third party fundraiser is just another way you can help Shalom help our community. Size doesn’t matter, your activity or event can be as little or as big as you like. With Shalom Counselling Centre’s endorsement you can host a BBQ, a car or dog wash, an ice cream social, bake sale or a pancake breakfast. Your imagination is your only fundraising limitation. Recruit some family, friends, neighbours or colleagues at work, and get your fundraising party started. With reports of mental health challenges now affecting one third of Canadians, combined with Shalom receiving a one third increase in inquiries for counselling services, the need hasn’t been greater. Your contribution will directly support subsidized counselling sessions, ensuring counselling services are financially accessible to all. For event guidelines and endorsement just reach out to Grant Damsgaard at Shalom Counselling Centre, [email protected] or call 403.342.0339

We all know giving helps others, whether we volunteer, offer emotional support to those around us or donate to charities. But did you know that the warm and fuzzy feeling you get from helping others is actually good for you?
