Sponsorship and Donations

You can make a sponsorship or donation, big or small,  to a paddler or  the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic to help with our fundraising.

There are a few ways to sponsor or donate.  You can-

  • Sponsor yourself,

  • Invite others to sponsor you,

  • Sponsor a paddler, or

  • Make a donation to the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic Association.

Raising your minimum sponsorship of $200 ($100 for juniors)

The Preferred option is to use GiveNow

Please refer to the email sent to you by Webscorer moments after you completed your entry.  That email walks through how paddlers create their fundraising page on the GiveNow platform.  Once paddlers set up their fundraising page via that process, GiveNow will send an email with the link for paddlers to send to their colleagues, friends and family for sponsorship to be raised.  This is the Association’s preferred process to initiate sponsorship.
