Fund Raising & Annual Events

Our annual goal is to raise $50,000 and we do this through three main fund raising approaches: 1) Direct donations, 2) Event participation and 3) Sponsor Team Canada. What donor level do you want to achieve this year? We have four donor recognition levels ranging from $10 to over $1,000.

We have a small but mighty roster of annual events. The year kicks off with our Annual General Meeting, Silent Auction and Donor Recognition, all held in conjunction with ISA Ontario's February Conference.

Tour des Trees

Adjacent: Annual Toronto Tree Festival, Toronto Island
Every spring/summer we typically host a wine tasting, tree tour or similar gathering. This is followed by the STIHL Tour des Trees, the largest non-governmental source of funding for tree research and education in America. Team Canada plays a pivotal role in the synergy of the summer tour with long-time cyclists who participate year after year. Weather permitting, we often host a fun day of golf in the fall.

Canadian TREE Fund directors are always receptive to new events that can gather members of the arboricultural community, educate the public, and raise much needed funds for research. If you have an innovative idea, please don't hesitate to contact us.
