Whether you’re rallying as a team or starting solo, this toolkit can help you achieve your fundraising goal.
Leading up to our BATL for Mental Health axe-throwing tournament on March 21, we’re challenging you to take a swing at stigma and raise funds for more accessible, affordable, community-based mental health programs. Not signed up yet? Register here. Then come back!
Your goal is to raise a minimum of $500 per team (or $100 per person).
By fundraising, you’ll support local mental health initiatives and the teams that raise the most will win great prizes for the whole group to enjoy.
FIVE FUNDRAISING TIPS TO KEEP IN MIND
🌟 Bonus: If you have a bit more time to spare, you could organize a bake sale, clothing swap, or trivia night in exchange for small donations. At the end of the day, this is all about fun and philanthropy. We want you to have a good time for a good cause.
It may seem obvious, but don’t forget to say thank you! It means a lot when someone chooses to donate, so make sure to let them know—whether it’s with a written note or a big hug—how grateful you are for their support.
Because of your fundraising efforts, GenNext East Ontario can create lasting change in the lives of the most vulnerable people across Prescott-Russell, Ottawa, Lanark County, and Renfrew County.
On March 21, I’m participating in BATL for Mental Health—a fundraiser with GenNext East Ontario for more accessible, affordable, community-based mental health programs.
One in five people in Canada struggle with their mental health. I want to make sure that when a person is ready to reach out for help, someone will always be there to listen—immediately, appropriately, and with care.
My team’s goal is to raise $500, and we’d love your support to help us get there. (OR: My goal is to raise $100, and I’d love your support to help me get there.)

Your donation will go towards one-on-one counselling, suicide prevention initiatives, peer support groups, mental health initiatives in after-school programs, and more. Get more info about how your donation will make a difference on GenNext’s website.
I hope you’ll donate today and help me go to BATL for mental health.
