Join an Event
The Foundation does not receive government grants. It relies entirely on donations from individuals, corporations, foundations, and other donors in order to reach its objectives and to carry out its mission.
Through the years, it has created and developed various fundraising activities : for information on upcoming events in your region, visit the Events Calendar of the Kidney Foundation or contact us.
The Door-to-Door Campaign (also known as the March Drive Campaign) of The Kidney Foundation of Canada has become the organization's most important public fundraising activity. Each year some 90,000 volunteers across Canada solicit neighbours, parents, friends, and colleagues in order to collect donations in support of people living with kidney disease.
Give the Gift of Life Walk
Give the Gift of Life Walk takes place annually at different times of the year, depending on the region. It is a fun, family-oriented event designed for people of all ages and levels of fitness. All are welcome to walk, jog or run in support of The Kidney Foundation of Canada and to raise both funds and awareness for organ and tissue donation.

This activity has been in existence for the past 30 years; it is the The Kidney Foundation of Canada's oldest fundraising campaign. Each Fall, thousands of volunteers raise funds by selling products such as peanuts and Life Savers lollipops. The campaign begins in mid-August and ends in November.
Depending on the region, events such as Golf Tournaments, Gala-Dinners, Spaghetti Dinners, etc., allow to raise thousands of dollars every year while increasing the population's awareness to our mission. For further information, visit the Events Calendar of the Kidney Foundation.
