Fundraising

You can choose to donate money during the registration process and if you’d like, seek pledges from family and friends. If you’re not participating, but still want to help, you can donate to a participant or directly to one of our charities using the links in the left side-bar on the registration page.

How Do I Raise Money?

Once you have registered on our Race Roster site, go back to the home page and select ‘Pledge a Participant‘. Search for your own name and select the blue ‘Pledge’ button. Once you’re at the ‘Make a donation’ screen, make a copy of the URL in your browser.
This is the link to share with friends and family, post on Facebook, Tweet and email. All the money raised using this link will be attributed to your name which we will use to determine who has raised the most amount of money. All participants who raise $500 or more get a free entry into next year’s race, and the top fundraiser over $500 will win a prize!

Where Does The Money Go?

Out in Schools engage youth through film in the promotion of safer and more diverse learning environments, free from homophobia, transphobia and bullying.

These are serious issues facing today’s youth, particularly queer youth. By bringing queer films to local high schools to facilitate discussion on bullying, homophobia and stereotypes, they give youth a safer space to explore these issues.

LOUD Business, through its charitable arm, the LOUD Foundation Pride Youth Scholarship Fund raises money and invests in the future leaders of the Canadian LGBTQ community. They believe that by supporting the development of students who possess drive, vision, compassion and knowledge, we can improve society and increase awareness of our diverse community.
