How We Fundraise
CC4Africa raises funds through sponsorships and fundraising events. Members and supporters have cultivated a loyal following through recurring events such as barbecues, auctions and fairs. There have also been incredible achievements such as climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, walking the Portuguese Coastal Way Camino and marathons. From 2006-2021, CC4Africa has raised over $400,000 for its various projects. As time progresses, we continue to innovate our fundraising opportunities. Below are some of the greatest fundraising achievements for CC4Africa. This list is not exhaustive and we greatly appreciate all the initiatives of our supporters through the years.
These events involve CC4Africa’s most loyal supporters and help to pay our low administrative costs, which allows every dollar of our other fundraisers to go to its specified cause.
Barbecues and Auctions
In Kimberley, BC, a barbecue and auction raised $5,600 CAD to support the building of the New Hope School.
In 2013, an Open House event in Kimberley, BC raised enough to furnish the new girl’s building at the New Hope Centre.
Four CC4Africa Board Members raised $12,000 CAD through sponsorships by walking the 280km Portuguese Coastal Way from Porto to Santiago de Compostela. These funds were used to start the process of building a water well in Rutemba, DRC.
Mount Kilimanjaro Climb
A group of nine, including three CC4Africa Board Members, completed an expedition to the peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro while raising $29,000 CAD to improve the infrastructure of the New Hope Centre.
In 2011 and 2012, there were two marathon walks that raised $21,000 CAD for the Gitega Health Centre maternity ward.
In 2017, CC4Africa matched a $17,000 CAD donation from a private donor to purchase a transformer and labour to connect the Gitega Health Centre to the local power grid.
