All Washed Up

Host a Car Wash- in a school playground, a parking lot or a driveway.  A car wash is a simple fundraiser that is good fun. Time to get your shammy out!

Junior Fundraising Program

Release the “Brainchild” in You. We are calling on all young, bold and creative minds to use your positive energies to help us raise funds to support our local Parkinson Community. Your minor actions can make a big impact.

Can you Spare a Toonie?

Calling all juniors to raise $50.00. Simply ask 25 people for a toonie and you are   on your way.

Coin Wars

A coin drive is most likely the least expensive fundraiser out there. All you have to supply are jars to deposit the coins. Your coin drive can last for as long as you like and you can organize it in just minutes. Just recruit some fundraisers to carry around your jars and give donors information about why you are fundraising for Parkinson’s. You can set up a change drop off   station to simplify the process and form teams to encourage competition.

Lemonade Stand

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. We have an old-fashioned authentic wooden lemonade stand just waiting to be used. Cool, refreshing and “fruitful” fun!

Bottle Drive

A little help from Mom and Dad and this is one of the most rewarding ways to fundraise.  Call on your neighbors and friends to donate their empty bottles to help raise funds.

*Don’t forget to promote your Parkinson Fundraiser through flyers, social media, word of mouth and emails!

The Passion for Parkinson’s Foundation could not achieve our fundraising goals without your support. We thank you in advance for your participation and generosity.
