QPlease Fundraiser!

Winter 2023

QPlease Fundraiser!

Feb 1 – April 1, 2023

What is this?
A little fundraising event to get some extra funds in for our donations at the end of the year!

Every person on this planet falls into 3 categories, which will be the 3 fundraising teams for this drive.

You are either 1) In the Winter 2023 QP show, 2) an Alumni from ANY QP show (excluding those in Winter 2023), or 3) a FAN of Queen’s Players (never been in a show, maybe never even seen one, but wants to get DONATING!).

These three categories will be competing for: (specifics on prizes coming soon)
1. Highest Donor in your category (1 prize per category)
2. Runner’s up in your category (for 2nd and 3rd place)
3. Top 3 Overall Donors
4. Maybe even more???
5. If you don’t get on the leaderboard, your prize is donating to charity and being a good person

If you’re thinking “how tf is my little toy money bank account looking ass going to come up with enough money to win some prizes?”. Donate what you can BUT, it’s time to leech off of any semblance of wealth you may find yourself in the vicinity of:
1. Your parents??
2. Neighbours??
3. Distant relatives??
4. Old teacher you had a crush on and need an excuse to send an email to??
5. An ex you need an excuse to send a “you up?” text to??
6. Your housemates??
7. That old employer who had a soft spot for you after you followed his instruction to smile more??

Endless possibilities! Need a template to send off to friends/family? See the end of this post! Mass email/test time! We love threatening chain mail!

Donate with this link here!

Starting now until 11:59pm on April 1st, get fundraising! We will send updates with leaderboards so you can know if you’re on track to win a prize!

Regardless of where you are living right now, how old you are, whatever else makes you special, you are ALL eligible to enter.

Template to reach out to people:
Hey! I am taking part in a fundraising drive for Queen’s Players, a sketch comedy music show that is one of Queen’s Universities largest charities! Player’s allocates money to various local charities in Kingston each year, and this year they are looking to fundraise as much money as possible to give back to charities that missed out during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. I would be so appreciative of any monetary donation you would be willing to give, or if you know anyone else who may be able to help me reach my fundraising goal of ___! (Tweak as needed!) If you’d like to donate, go over to https://www.zeffy.com/en-CA/fundraising/80a27e57-09c6-4724-a880-d53d2d26f6cd!

Charity Applications

Every year Queen’s Players creates and performs a music-filled comedy show, with all proceeds being directly donated to various charities and initiatives both locally and beyond. If you know of an organization in need of some extra funding for their programming, or you have a project that would benefit from financial support, take some time to recognize their work by filling out our application/nomination form!

The allotment of funding will be at the discretion of the Queen’s Players Executive Board and 2022/2023 members of the club.

We encourage applicants from all identities, genders, ethnicities, faiths, and abilities. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at qp.board@gmail.com or through our social media @queensplayers.

Thank you so much for all you do. The world is experiencing an especially difficult time right now, but your business or charitable organization makes it just a little bit brighter.
