When you share your birthday, wedding, graduation, anniversary or other special moment with WWF-Canada, your personal milestone helps wildlife, nature and people thrive together.

Celebrate the special moments in your life

Hosting a fundraiser is a meaningful way to give back to nature and have a great time with your friends and family. It is easy to do and WWF-Canada will help you every step of the way.

ECHOage parties

Celebrating a birthday or another special occasion? Support wildlife at the same time by turning your party into an ECHOage party. Guests are invited to make a contribution that is split between a group gift for you and a cause of your choice. Plus, ECHOage offers personalized invitations and thank-you notes for guests.

Special occasion ideas


Instead of asking for presents, ask for donations to your fundraising page to help protect wildlife.

Holiday parties

Use your fundraising page as a wildlife holiday party invitation by emailing everyone the link. They can see all your party details and make a donation.

Bar/bat mitzvahs

Support WWF-Canada’s conservation work for your bar/bat mitzvah project and ask your family and friends to help.


Mark a special anniversary by asking loved ones to donate to your fundraising page, commemorating your shared commitment to conservation.


Instead of a gift registry, ask your guests to make a donation to WWF-Canada to celebrate your commitment to nature and one another. Include a link to your fundraising page with your wedding invitations or on your wedding website.

Graduations and achievements

Celebrate your special achievement by helping WWF-Canada achieve its conservation goals through your fundraising page.
