Ready to make an impact?

Action Team leaders work with a group of volunteers to organize a fundraising event that’s important to their community. Initiatives can be done either virtually or in person.

Apply once per calendar year to receive $150 in seed money* to help get your fundraising event off the ground. Plus, we’ll boost your impact by throwing in a post-event donation of $100 to the registered charity you’re supporting!

Frequently Asked Questions

The purpose of the Action Teams benefit is for members to give back to the community by supporting a fundraising event of their choice.

It includes a $150 cheque from Serenia Life up front (seed funding) to go towards the costs of a member’s fundraising activities, followed by a $100 donation to the charity the member is supporting, post event. The seed money is not a gift. It’s an investment to help a member get their fundraiser started.

The total amount received is $250: $150 in seed funding, and a $100 post-event donation.

The member can expect to receive a $150 cheque in the mail. The $100 donation will go directly to the registered Canadian charity the member is supporting.

The member can expect to receive their cheque in the mail up to 30 days after applying.

After completing the Action Teams post-event survey, the cheque will be mailed to the registered charity within 3 weeks.

Once a year.

Members should apply at least 5 weeks before their event is scheduled to take place. The Action Teams Benefit will not be awarded post event.

Members must complete their event and fill out the post-event survey to qualify for the $100 donation to a Canadian registered charity.

Raising money can sometimes cost money. That’s why we provide our members with funds to help get their fundraising event off the ground. With a little bit of leadership and a lot of community collaboration, the seed money we provide can snowball into something much bigger. For example, use your seed money to create signs advertising a food drive or to purchase prizes for top fundraisers.

You can used your seed money to do a good deed, such as organizing a fundraiser that raises money for charity. The way we see it, our members “plant” their seed money and watch it grow by raising community engagement – and a lot more funds – towards a cause they care about. It’s a powerful and inspiring thing!

Yes!

Serenia Life reviews applications on an individual basis. We reserve the right to limit the volunteer events it supports and Action Team benefits awarded.

Yes, up to two Serenia Life members can raise funds for the same cause. Please note that we will require two separate applications.

Two or more members can raise funds for the same cause. If members require more funds for a cause, then two members can apply for funding for the same event. If members require less than the $150 (and don’t use the full amount), we recommend that they put the rest of the funds towards the cause that they’re supporting.

The eligibility requirements for this benefit include:

  1. applicant must be a member and have an active policy
  2. member must be 18 years of age or older
  3. member may qualify for only one Action Team per calendar year
  4. event must be an eligible Action Team

Serenia Life reserves the right to limit funding to two Action Teams per cause each year.
