CENTURY 21 Canada shatters own fundraising record for Easter Seals kids
2017 was a record-breaking year of fundraising for one of Easter Seals’ long-standing national partners, CENTURY 21 Canada.
With the outstanding commitment, dedication and generosity of its System members from coast to coast, the CENTURY 21 Canada family raised an incredible $759,284 for the C21 Kids to Camp Program! Not only did this shatter their $700,000 annual goal, but this banner fundraising year also eclipsed their previous all-time high of $682,013 set in 2015.
Through participation in fundraising events such as the Easter Seals Drop Zone and Woman2Warrior, as well as the Closing Gifts for Kids program and countless fundraising initiatives of their own, CENTURY 21 System members generously donated their time and money to make this incredible achievement possible.
Even more impressive, the three-quarters of a million dollars raised by CENTURY 21 Canada in 2017 brings their total fundraising for Easter Seals to more than $10.4 million.
“What an amazing achievement,” said Easter Seals Canada President and CEO, Dave Starrett. “CENTURY 21 is the kind of partner you dream of having – they pour their heart and soul into their fundraising and seem to outdo themselves year after year.”

Not only did dozens of CENTURY 21 offices and companies go the extra mile, but there were also 60 individual System members who seemed to make it their personal mission to change the lives of kids living with disabilities. For these special individuals, Easter Seals and CENTURY 21 Canada created the Kids to Camp Club.
Launched in 2015, the Kids to Camp Club is an exclusive “Club” of CENTURY 21 Canada System members who raise at least $2,100 in a calendar year to send kids living with disabilities to Easter Seals’ fully-accessible summer camps.
Having already welcomed 35 members in its inaugural year, and another 51 members in 2016, Easter Seals is thrilled to acknowledge the 60 System members who achieved C21® Kids to Camp Club membership in 2017. View the full list here.
Easter Seals is grateful for the support of CENTURY 21 Canada, its System members and their families, friends and clients. Through their generosity in 2017, more than 360 kids living with disabilities will get the opportunity to experience the power of Easter Seals fully-accessible summer camp—a magical place that encourages independence, instils confidence, boosts self-esteem and changes a child’s life forever.
Thank you CENTURY 21!
