You can help give the gift of memories to families.
Did you know Canuck Place is famous for our homemade cookies?
Each year, our amazing staff and volunteers lovingly bake 100,000 cookies in the Canuck Place kitchen. These cookies provide warmth, comfort and lasting memories for children and families in the hospice.
By fundraising for Canuck Place, you’re directly supporting families that live in your community. You can help create lasting memories for the incredible families at Canuck Place.
Due to the pandemic, the Canuck Place Cookie Day fundraiser is going to look a little bit different this year! First, it gets a new name: Cookies for Canuck Place! And it’s not just about a bake sale.
From February 1 until the end of the school year, Cookies for Canuck Place gives you the choice of where, when and how to fundraise in support of children with life-threatening illnesses and the families who love them.

Here are a few ideas to get you started–but feel free to (safely) fundraise however you like!
As easy as 1, 2, 3. Ask for contributions that would have been spent on cookies. We will provide instructions to create an online fundraising platform for your school or business. Visit my.canuckplace.org and follow the user-friendly page creation tool. If you need any further assistance, please contact one of our Cookie Concierges.
Colleagues/parents/caregivers/supporters can donate directly to your page and receive a tax receipt (minimum $20 or more).
Socially Distant Coin Drive
Every dollar counts! This is exactly as it sounds. We will provide a printable coin collection box for your participants to use individually. Collect the coins and watch your total grow.
Cafeteria/Restaurant Cause Marketing Campaign
Is your school cafeteria open? Does your restaurant want to get involved? Select an item(s) to sell with proceeds going to Canuck Place. IE: 25% of all cookies or French fries sold for one week will support kids and families.
Does your school, PAC, employee or community group use Facebook? Sign up for a Facebook Fundraiser and start sharing. All fees are waived so 100% of your donations will go directly to Canuck Place.
Philanthropy and Social Change in Action
Do you have a leadership group at your school looking for an activity or project? We’d be happy to present virtually to your class to discuss these important topics and support the project as best as we can.
Does your school use Munchalunch or similar fundraising software? Add a “Cookie Day” to your menu of options to collect funds to support kids and families.
Join together, distantly and celebrate. Wear your favourite jersey, throwback to the 80s, go casual and wear jeans…the sky is the limit. Pay a small “fine” to participate and watch your donations roll in.
