Fundraising FAQs

How are fundraising incentive prizes earned?

Fundraising incentives are a great way to encourage participants to rally support from their networks and raise much-needed funds in support of the Stollery Children’s Hospital. 

Incentive prizing will be awarded based on the total amount raised per participant based on their individual participant page fundraising totals. 

Our teddy bear incentive is cumulative and can be earned in addition to higher incentive levels. Incentives over $250 are not cumulative and will be leveled-up and upgraded to the next incentive item.
