Host a Community Fundraiser

Thank you for your interest in hosting a community fundraiser with proceeds supporting Distress Centre Calgary. By hosting a community fundraiser, you have the unique opportunity to raise funds and ensure everyone is heard, so they can meet life's challenges head on. 

By connecting with us, Distress Centre's Strategy & Engagement team can help provide support and share resources to help educate your networks about Distress Centre's mission, programs, and services.

Please submit your proposal at least one month before promoting or hosting your event.

Step 1: First please decide which fundraising concept matches your vision.

If you are interested in hosting a 50/50 raffle, wine survivor, gift basket draw, or prize draw at your event, Distress Centre can help with getting an AGLC license. Licenses can take 2 – 3 weeks to acquire, so please provide enough time for the license to be processed. To host a raffle, read through AGLC’s regulations. An AGLC license will not be approved if any information is missing or unclear.

Step 2: Once we receive your proposal, we will contact you to provide support as best as we can.
