Adopt a Chapter

Your help can make a chapter successful.

Best Buddies Canada is proceeding with its expansion plans through schools across the country. As expected, these initiatives are important and costly. By adopting a chapter, you can support the Best Buddies program and help ensure Best Buddies expands into more communities.

You can adopt a chapter for a donation of $500 or more.

With this contribution, your name will be attached to a chapter from the region of your choice:

  • Western Canada
  • Central Canada
  • Maritimes/Atlantic Canada
  • Or no preference

Group outings and events also help to encourage inclusion within our chapters and help to create more public awareness of Best Buddies Canada in local communities. However, it is not always easy for students to raise funds to do fun things for their chapter while keeping up with a hectic school¬†schedule. Although fundraising is usually an excellent team building experience, not achieving fundraising goals limits the extent of community activities that are available for students and Buddies. Being able to rent a minivan for a road trip or to attend a NHL hockey game could help to provide lifelong memories but chapters often require assistance from Best Buddies Canada to achieve these goals. Your ‘Adopt a Chapter’ donation can also assist chapters in making these memories possible!

All ‘Adopt a Chapter’ donations will receive recognition on our website and are tax deductible.¬†Best Buddies Canada thanks you for your commitment to this fulfilling cause.
