Community Events & Fundraising


Community events and fundraisers play an integral role in improving Nova Scotia’s mental health programs and services. These events can include casual days, bake sales, BBQs, concerts, golf tournaments and other special events.

The Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia does not receive government funding. We rely on the generosity of event attendees, donors, community partners and volunteers to help make our work possible. Consider taking part in a Community Event, or hosting your own!
