Helping the Sudbury Manitoulin Children Foundation (SMCF) can take on many forms including planning your own fundraising activity. It’s as easy as organizing a group to participate in one of our annual SMCF events or inviting people to donate to SCMF in lieu of gifts at your next party.

Read on for more great ideas on how you can have fun and make a difference for some disadvantaged children in your community.


Every year, local businesses and organizations are encouraged to register to participate in the SMCF Dress Down Day. Employees dress down and donate $2 to the SMCF Send-A-Kid To Camp Program. Last years’ event was a great success.  You can also challenge another business for some friendly competition. If your business is interested in participating, contact our office or through email at for more information.


Every year, local businesses and artisans donate their time and money to create hand painted Muskoka chairs for the SMCF Charity Chairs Auction.  We are busy preparing for our 2017 auction and are presently recruiting local artists and sponsors.  If you are interested in sponsoring a chair or lending your artistic talents to this event please contact our office at 673-2227 or through email at for information.
