Third-Party Fundraiser Guidelines

 Thank you for volunteering to help the Hospice Dufferin support individual and their families living with a life limiting illness or bereavement.

 

The following guidelines are provided to ensure that you are aware of potential needs or issues regarding your event/promotion and assist you in your efforts.  For smaller events some of these guidelines may not apply.  If you have any questions not answered by these guidelines or FAQ’s please contact Maureen Riedler, Executive Director at mriedler@hospicedufferin.com or 519 942 3313.

  • The use of the Hospice Dufferin’s  name, logo or mission may not be used in any way without approval from the Executive Director of Hospice Dufferin

  • All fund raising event/promotions for the benefit of Hospice Dufferin must be approved in advance no less than 30 days prior to the proposed promotion or event start date before approval can be granted.

  • Fundraisers which benefit Hospice Dufferin must reflect positively on its mission, values and vision.

  •  Event organizers are responsible for obtaining all permits, licenses and insurance certificates.
