Get Inspired and Start Your ShelterBox Fundraising Journey

ShelterBox aims to support Rotarians, Rotary Clubs and any Rotary groups that wish to fundraise for ShelterBox.

We know that everyone likes to engage with ShelterBox in different ways, so we’ve developed a few campaigns that inspire people and communities to get together and raise funds and awareness for ShelterBox. These campaigns are great for Rotary clubs big and small!

Ideas to fundraise from a Distance

BECOME A SHELTERBOX HERO


A ShelterBox Canada Hero is a Rotary Club that has identified the continuing need to prepare for disasters and respond at a moment’s notice. Clubs are recognized based on their total annual giving throughout the year. There are three ShelterBox Hero levels: Bronze ($1,200+), Silver ($3,600) and Gold ($6,000).

In appreciation, each ShelterBox Canada Hero will receive a Hero certificate at their District Conference, a digital badge for their website and recognition on our webpage.

This elite group has identified the continuing need to prepare for and immediately respond to disasters and conflict around the world. Annual donations allow ShelterBox to pre-position aid in or near countries where we respond often, resulting in a more efficient and timely response.

Go Off the Grid


The Off the Grid challenge is a friendly competition between schools groups to draw awareness about families left without shelter after disasters.

When disasters strike and power lines go down, families are left vulnerable, robbed of comfort, light and electricity.

Off the Grid challenge students to go without power for 12 or 24 hours to understand some of the impacts of disasters on families around the world. This challenge is great for Rotaract and Interact Clubs as well as Youth Exchange Students!
