Dutch Auction

Every year at our AGM, we do an entertaining fundraiser called a Dutch Auction to support and expand our work. 

How does this work? 

In a Dutch Auction, bids start high and decrease over the course of the event, allowing everyone to donate at a level that's comfortable for them. This year, we'll have merchandise incentives to encourage those who can donate to give generously.

The best part? If fundraising targets are met, AGM attendees get to witness our Executive Director, Jared Kolb, do a funny/embarassing stunt. Past year's stunts have included Jared dying his hair Cycle Toronto-brand orange, riding his bike into Lake Ontario, and dressing up in a raccoon suit.

 

Annual Report

Our brand new 2017 Annual Report is online! We invite you to revisit highlights from our Advocacy, Education, and Encouragement programs. We’ll have display copies available at the AGM.
