Wedding & engagement donations

Celebrate love & laughter with Ooch

What better way to celebrate your special news? Help us bring laughter and joy to kids affected by childhood cancer across Ontario.

Reasons to give

Camp Ooch is a place where kids affected by childhood cancer can just be kids. Whether in the hospital, in the community, or away at our Overnight Camp in Muskoka, our programming brings the social cure for cancer to Campers and their families.

We want to bring Camp Ooch to every kid affected by childhood cancer in Ontario, so we need your help. Your donations will help us expand our programs, bringing the Magic of Ooch closer to home.

For more information on the impact of your gift, see your donations at work.

How you can donate

There are two ways to send kids to Camp on behalf of your wedding, anniversary, or engagement: make a gift to Ooch in honour of your celebration (or on behalf of your guests), or encourage your guests to donate to Ooch in lieu of giving gifts.

In both cases, we can provide you with table cards, letters, a certificate, and even tags for guest presents so that you can tell people about your plans to donate, or encourage others to donate, too.

Make a gift in honour of your celebration

Tell us about your plans at least one month before your celebration so that we can prepare and work with you!

First, complete our registration form and let us know what kind of Ooch collateral you’re interested in. Next, an Ooch team member will reach out to you to discuss options and help you complete your donation.

Frequently asked questions

How far in advance should I tell Ooch about my engagement/wedding donation plans?

If you’d like Ooch-branded cards or other collateral on your special day, we need notice at least one month’s notice. A one month timeline will help us process and prepare your request in time.

How long will my fundraising page be accessible from the Camp Ooch website?

Your page will be listed on our in honour page until the date you specified on your form. You and your guests will also be able to find your page by searching on the In Honour listing.

Once you’ve set up your profile and created your page, you’ll be able to modify your preferences and remove the page if desired.
