  1. Organize a golf tournament or designate the Sandra Schmirler Foundation as a beneficiary of an existing tournament. We encourage matches for monies raised.
  2. Create a fundraiser at your curling club: Looking for fundraising ideas? The Sandra Schmirler Foundation would like to help! How about a fundraising breakfast on Sandra Schmirler Day (February 19 – the day of the Telethon)? Many curling clubs across Canada raise funds on Telethon day with a variety of special activities. Or how about a sports pool? The Rideau Curling Club in Ottawa donates 50% from their Scotties pool to the Foundation each year.



If your company has a payroll deduction plan with the United Way you can designate the Sandra Schmirler Foundation to receive your donation.

Many companies reward employees for volunteering at community events by making a donation in their name to a charity of their choice. Our past Chair, Theresa Breen, donates to the Sandra Schmirler Foundation this way every year.

Be creative and have fun fundraising!
