The goal of workplace and school giving should be as an engagement tool (for employees or youth) and motivation to do good for your community.
We are fortunate to be the charity of choice for many business and schools throughout Edmonton.
Online Fundraising Page

Edmonton Food Bank Logo
Please contact our Resource Development Team if you need an electronic version of our logo to help promote your fund drive.
Recycle your pop cans, or try SkipTheDepot, and donate the proceeds to the Food Bank.
50/50 or Raffle
Planning a 50/50 or raffle to raise funds, please review our AGLC requirements to help guide you.
Get the word out
Create public awareness by placing promotional items (like posters, flyers, information brochures, etc.) in areas such as lunchrooms or elevators to build awareness of your food drive. Internal newsletters, public address systems, or mass e-mails can build anticipation. Use social media such as Twitter or Facebook.
Go where the action is
Provide convenient drop-off points where people can leave their donations.
Align your event with a pre-existing event, holiday, or observance. Reduced admissions or clever themes will help your drive become a success. But, don’t let us tell you how to throw a fundraiser – if you want to explore alternatives, we’re wide open for discussion.
Everyone likes a challenge
Make it interesting – try to create a friendly competition with co-workers or different classes. Challenge them to meet your contribution because everyone enjoys friendly competition for a good cause.
