Fundraising is a necessity for all registered charitable organizations and Pembina Active Living (55+) is no exception. With over 400 members, four programming locations; six yearly events; staff and contract personnel and over twenty programs, PAL (55+) is a large and ever-growing organization which requires a lot of resources. There are very few operating grants available to non-profit organizations and so as we grow PAL (55+) will rely more and more on internal fundraising efforts to help us fulfill our mission.

Fundraising is not only an opportunity to increase our resources, it is also great PR. Corporate sponsorships allow many non seniors an opportunity to attend special events and to learn about our vital mission and the great work that PAL (55+) is doing in the community. It is a great way to showcase our accomplishments and to highlight our goals and vision. Fundraising brings our community together!

Past accomplishments

In October of 2012, the fundraising committee organized PAL’s first fundraising dinner which was a great success! Other fundraising endeavours have included the Kin Kar Raffle, Grey Cup Raffle, bake sales, Player’s Choice raffle’s, book sales, garden club gift cards, 50/50 draws and food and wine pairing events.

Successful fundraising requires many volunteers. Please contact us and share your skills. All contributions, big or small are greatly appreciated.
