The Busby Centre relies heavily on the generous support of our incredible community.


When the community comes together to raise awareness and funds for the Busby Centre, the proceeds go to support our important services and programs, which in turn allows us to continue supporting the over 150 people we serve daily in Barrie and Collingwood.


The proceeds raised have a huge impact on our organization, and awareness of our organization and what we do every day is invaluable.

There are many ways to fundraise for the Busby Centre. A few past ideas we have seen are:


  • Birthday fundraisers
  • Gift Card Drives
  • Donation boxes
  • Bake Sales and Garage Sales
  • Walks and Runs
  • Donations Drives  (Contact us for a list of most needed items)

Your support allows us to continue supporting those who are experiencing homelessness or at risk of experiencing homelessness in our communities!

If you plan on hosting an event, please check in with our staff so we can assist you with materials and promote your fundraising efforts. Don't hesitate to get in touch with Louise Jackson, Director of Major Donors and Communications, at
