Host Your Own Event

Community events play a critical role in helping the Foundation meet its annual fundraising goals. We are so grateful to the individuals, groups and companies who organize their own fundraising events to benefit Mackenzie Health. Proceeds can go towards our highest-priority needs, like lifesaving equipment and technology, and preparing for unexpected emergencies like COVID-19. 

This is your chance to give back to your community.

Individuals, groups and companies can organize a fundraising event and donate the proceeds to Mackenzie Health Foundation.

Although we can’t gather in-person right now, the option of hosting a virtual event is a great solution.

By organizing an event benefiting Mackenzie Health, you’re contributing financial support and raising vital awareness to improve health care for our community. It’s never been more important to ensure that our community has access to the ultimate in health care close to home.

Popular with busy families, ECHOage is an online birthday party website with a charitable twist.

Children learn the value of giving and receiving, while celebrating a birthday. Instead of buying presents, your guests make a donation online and your birthday boy or girl receives half  of the amount, with the other half going to Mackenzie Health Foundation to support your hospital.

ECHOage helps to make birthday parties more rewarding for the kids and less work for parents, while combining the good feeling of receiving with the great feeling of giving.

ECHOage isn’t only for kids. You can incorporate giving into your bridal or baby shower, milestone celebration or summer bash.

It’s Just A Few Easy Steps

  1. Register on ECHOage.com and click Create an Invitation.
  2. Fill out all of the necessary party/event details. You may also choose to increase the percentage of proceeds you want donated to Mackenzie Health Foundation over the mandatory 50 per cent.
  3. Invite guests through the ECHOage site – it’s an easy way to send invitations and track RSVPs.
  4. You are done.
