Welcome to Our Fundraising Community!

We are fortunate to have so many of generous volunteers and community-minded organizations dedicated to supporting the University of Ottawa Heart Institute Foundation. With the support of a generous community we are helping an exceptional team of health care professionals advance cardiovascular care and save lives everyday.

Are you ready to fight back against heart disease? There are so many ways to get involved … and have fun too!


1. Register Your Fundraiser (read all options below):

Select “Create a Fundraiser (as an individual)” if you do not wish to have others join your event. A single personal donation page will be automatically created for you. We encourage you to personalize this page by explaining what your event is and uploading a picture!

Select “Create a Fundraiser (that others can join)” if you are the event organizer and will have people registering in the event. As the event organizer, you will have an event page and personal donation page created automatically. Both can be personalized by you only. Those that join your event will only have a personal page to manage, but their names will appear under the main event page.

If you are looking to do an event on behalf of the Heart Institute, please fill out our event proposal form.

Select “Join a Fundraiser” if you wish to join an event that is already registered. A personal page will be created for you, which you can personalize. Your name will appear under the main event page and your fundraising will go towards the event. Search the fundraiser name in the “event” search bar and join!

2. Share with your friends

Share your fundraiser to your family, friends, and co-workers! To make it easier for you, we’ve created template emails for you to use, edit, and send through your participant centre!


3. Remember to personalize your page

Familiarize yourself with the Participant Center page. It has everything you need to get you started. Don’t forget to add  pictures and a story – this is a great way to encourage your friends and family to support you. There’s a reason why you are fundraising for the Heart Institute. What is it? Let the world know.
