Fundraising for Hydrocephalus Canada

Hydrocephalus Canada is not government funded. The money that we need to create and offer the programs and services needed by people whose lives are affected by Hydrocephalus and/or Spina Bifida come from people like you as well as foundations and companies who believe in what we do. So, please look at the ways you can give and share them with coworkers, family and friends.


Hosting Your Own Event

Hosting your own fundraising or awareness event can be a unique and meaningful way to make a difference and benefit others. If you’re looking for a great way to support a cause dedicated to improving the quality of life of people living with spina bifida and/or hydrocephalus why not organize a third party event. This is an event organized by you, however big or small, where proceeds are donated to Hydrocephalus Canada (HC).

Fundraising is an important part of our activities that sustains programs, contributes to research and helps those who need us.

Here are some examples of successful third party events:

  • Bake Sales
  • Barbeques
  • Bingo Nights
  • Bowling Tournaments
  • Car Washes
  • Competitions (billiards, darts, scrabble, Texas Hold’em)
  • Dinner/Dances
  • Endurance Challenges (bike-a-thon, walk-a-thon, spin-a-thon)
  • Garage Sales
  • Golf Tournaments
  • Fashion Shows
  • School Fundraisers
  • Street Fairs & Carnival Days
  • Used Book Sales
  • Wine & Cheese Parties



Another great way to make a difference is to include HC in an event you are already planning. Instead of a gift encourage guests to bring a donation to Hydrocephalus Canada. Some celebrations you might consider doing this for include:

  • Birthdays
  • Graduations
  • Weddings
  • Anniversaries
  • Retirement Parties
