Third Party Events

Thank you for your interest in supporting George Brown College Foundation by hosting a third party event. Third party events are an important part of our fundraising efforts and we look to our supporters to help us reach out to their networks, work places and community groups in order to reach our fundraising goals.

It is easy to support the Foundation by hosting your own third party event, and we are here to help you get started. Every little bit helps and we appreciate your efforts to help us raise money to support our student success at the College.

Tips for Success

The key to a successful event is planning! Start with brainstorming event ideas, then develop a work plan and set deadlines for tasks to be accomplished. Also ensure that your budget is realistic and keep detailed records of your expenses. Make sure everyone knows what they are responsible and accountable for.

Do not forget to promote your event and your fundraising goals! The more people you get involved the more money you can raise. And remember, the Foundation is here to help.
