As a charitable organization, we rely on the dedication and passion of our community to help sustain our unfunded services for adults, teens and children living with a developmental disability. We value working with businesses, organizations and individuals to strengthen our mission of inclusion, equality and community living.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Organize an Event in Your Community
Hosting a third-party fundraising or awareness event is a meaningful way to make a difference and help the people we support. A third-part event is one organized by you, however big or small, the proceeds from which are donated to Community Living Trent Highlands. We are available to provide our support and resources to your event, and perhaps even to take part in the fun!
Find something that you and your employees already enjoy doing or think of something totally new! These are some examples of potential third-party events:
- Bake sale
- Dress down day
- A special day – perhaps a barbeque day in the summer or hot chocolate day in the winter
- Weight loss / fitness challenge
- Bowling / golf / curling tournament
- Dinner / dance
Sponsorship offers excellent exposure as a valued community member and supporter of inclusive communities for all citizens, including those who are living with a developmental disability. Whether your company’s strategic goals involve raising public awareness or building a positive public image, we will work with you to customize sponsorship to meet your unique objectives.
Sponsorship opportunities might include:
- Sponsoring a specific program or initiative.
- Purchasing or assisting in the purchase of an item on our wish list, perhaps for our community homes or self-advocates as examples.
- Sponsoring partner events, such as a United Way Peterborough or United Way for the City of Kawartha Lakes.
