Host your own Fundraising Event

Why would I host a fundraising activity for KLFS?

The Food Source receives no regular funding from any level of government, although it has received one-time grants on occasion. Since KLFS is the only food distribution warehouse in the City of Kawartha Lakes, financial support is greatly needed to ensure that KLFS can continue to meet the needs of those who feed the hungry in the City of Kawartha Lakes.

What kinds of fundraising activities can I arrange?

The list of possibilities are endless! Why not donate a portion of ticket sales, hold a raffle, have a social tea, a car wash, or a silent auction? Basically any activity that for which participants would pay an entry fee or purchase a ticket could be a fundraiser for KLFS. A coin donation box could also be set up at any event. If you’re not sure if your idea is a good one, why not call us and we can help.

How is my financial donation used?

When the public donates money to the Food Source, it is used to buy food, run the warehouse, pay for waste disposal, recruit volunteers, run the office, pick up food donations and more.

How do I collect donated funds?

You can request that coin donation boxes be provided for your event. Another option is to go to canadahelps.org to set up a personal giving page and name KLFS as your charity. Many groups simply collect the money in a cash can and then write out a cheque to Kawartha Lakes Food Source for the total amount collected for donation.

What support will you give if I organize an event?

Contact the Food Source office or request your fundraising toolkit here. We can help you determine how many barrels, brochures and any other information you might need, as well as provide approved logos for any printed materials you plan to use to advertise the event.
