The Power of People 

Looking to raise funds in support of Oxfam Canada? You've come to the right place!

Planning a fundraising event or activity is a great way to tackle inequality and end poverty for good.

Every year Canadians like you come up with new and creative ways to help Oxfam fight poverty and injustice. It’s now easier than ever to start a fundraising event or activity that works best for you!

  • Decide what kind of fundraising activity you’re going to host. Hold a backyard BBQ, a family skating day, a birthday fundraiser, or a bake sale – the possibilities are endless!
  • Create your fundraising page. By doing so, you’ll gain access to plenty of tools and resources to help coordinate your fundraising efforts. You’ll also be able to customize your fundraising profile so family and friends can donate directly to your activity, and see progress towards your goal.
  • Promote your fundraiser. Send emails to family and friends right from your fundraising profile to ask for donations, or hold your event and donate the pooled funds to Oxfam Canada through your profile.

To get started, choose the type of fundraiser you’re looking to hold: 


Celebrating a birthday or other special milestone? Ask family and friends to join you and donate to help families around the world in the fight against poverty and injustice.


Getting married? Ask family and friends to commemorate your big day by donating to help communities overcome poverty and inequality in your honour.


Host a dinner party, dance class, or get the band together to fundraise for Oxfam’s life-saving work around the globe – get creative with it!
