Get Your Family’s or Organization’s Name on the Heritage Wall
The Heritage Wall will reside in the new wing of the Health Centre. This piece of art is designed to honour those individuals and families who not only built Vulcan County, but who continue to live, work, and contribute to our community. A $1000 donation gets your family’s or organization’s name on the Heritage Wall. A family can represent its heritage by listing up to five generations. Organizations and Service Clubs will be acknowledged by the phrase “Past and Current Members”

Create Your Own Fundraising Event

Ask your colleagues to bring lunch from home for a group picnic in a lovely green space anywhere in the County of Vulcan. You could then donate the money that would have been spent on buying a lunch. But best of all it is a reason to enjoy lunch with friends in the outdoors.

Select a day in which colleagues can wear clothes that differ from your regular office dress code in return for a donation.

Millennials are making a difference everyday with peer-to-peer fundraising through Birthday Campaigns. Instead of gifts, the individual creates online fundraising on their SM pages and asks their friends and loved ones to donate. There are endless possibilities for campaigns, from 5k run/walks to Wedding Celebrations to Challenges

An evening of hors d’oeuvres or dinner at the homes of friends. Everyone donates a set amount, equivalent to a night out.

Have a party, charge admission, and have people bring lots of food. Make it more interesting, dress as your favorite player or make it mandatory to wear football/hockey clothing for entry.

Ask all your friends and family to put aside their spare change to be added to the Super Change Jar. Make it a fun school or club event!

Ask the members of your Book Club to donate the cost of a copy of your current reading selection, each time you select a new book to read. At the end of the year you would have a wonderful donation.

For those of you who belong to organizations or service clubs, consider donating the proceeds of one of your events to the VCHW Foundation. Make the event competitive between businesses, organizations or other service clubs.
