Feel good about your purchases, knowing that a portion of the sales comes back to nonprofits in the community.

Host a third-party fundraising event

Extend-A-Family Waterloo Region greatly appreciates the support we receive from the community. One of the many ways we receive financial support is from supporters in the community who choose to host a third party fundraiser on our behalf.

Third party fundraising events are hosted by another business, organization or individual in support of EAFWR. Events can range from garage sales and car washes to formal dinner parties and golf tournaments. Product sales parties (e.g., Arbonne, Avon, Epicure, etc.) work too! Many have hosted parties and donated proceeds back to EAFWR.

If you are interested in hosting an event on behalf of EAFWR, please contact Becky Klokoff at becky.klokoff@eafwr.on.ca. We want to help make your event a success and we look forward to working with you!

Some of the programs EAFWR offers that aren’t supported by government funding, are:

  • The Short Breaks Fund offers respite and events for families currently waiting for funding approval.
  • The Autism Spectrum Connection website and social media resource is an essential online tool for families, persons who identify with the Autism Spectrum Disorder, and professionals. ASC is your source for events, supports and resources.
  • Support for young adults who have just graduated from Special Services at Home, and are awaiting funding approval in the adult funding system.
  • Community development projects help connect those already involved with EAFWR to the broader community to meet people through groups, initiatives and opportunities.
  • Inclusion and belonging events through the I Choose Dignity movement, as well as community education and awareness programs.
  • Our Community Activity Fund helps offset the cost of recreation opportunities which allow people to be active and access community opportunities.
