Individual Fundraising

Here’s a handful of suggestions to help you get started or spark ideas for your own original Beginnings fundraiser.

  1. Raise funds for a special event on behalf of Beginnings, or start your own event! These could include a bike-athon, walk-athon, local penny drive, charity formal, bake sale, car wash – let your imagination loose!
  2. In lieu of a gift for special occasions like weddings, birthdays, an anniversary, dinner party – any occasion! – send a donation to Beginnings!

Planned Giving

When we think about making the world a better place, we tend to think about the things we can do in our lifetime.  But what about the difference we can make after?

By giving to Beginnings, you can possibly make a bigger difference than you ever could in your lifetime, without having to sacrifice your standard of living.  In fact, there are even financial benefits for your loved ones.

A planned gift allows you to leave a gift for Beginnings Family Services.  It can take the form of a bequest, a gift of life insurance, securities or RRSPs.

The benefits of planned giving don’t stop at helping people in need; they also include reducing taxes paid by your estate, supplementing your income and maximizing benefits to your estate and beneficiaries.

Your consideration in providing a planned gift – whether a bequest in your Will, a gift of life insurance or securities, or a charitable annuity – will help cover the cost of building strong families through infant adoption, embryo donation and professional counseling.

We can help build stronger families houses with your help.  By giving through Beginnings Family Services Foundation you can demonstrate the importance of family as the cornerstone to a healthy community.

To make a planned gift though a Will, insurance policy payout, stocks or other means please contact:

Involving Your Church

By involving your church you are putting your faith and love into action in a meaningful and powerful way. Each Beginnings family supported by your church serves as a lasting reminder of God’s grace. It is difficult to ignore such a tangible expression of love. The community notices when people work together as an instrument of God’s love. Within and among congregations, people experience a strong sense of unity and purpose when together they reach out to their neighbours in need.

How you congregation can help:

  • Pray for the work of Beginnings and families in need throughout Canada
  • Sponsor a Family
  • Make a cash donation
  • Offer in-kind goods and services
  • Gather members of the congregation to volunteer at a Beginnings event (no experience necessary)
  • Involve your youth group
  • Organize a fundraiser
  • Invite a Beginnings representative to speak at your church to increase awareness
