You may raise funds towards travel expenses and program fees for two years after the time of travel.  The amount “earned” is split 50:50 with the chapter. Funds are kept track of and credited to your program balance.  


Every four weeks, six volunteers are required to staff bingos.  Each volunteer raises $50 toward their family’s travel fund and the captain earns $75.

CISV Waterloo Region is hosting a Christmas poinsettia fundraiser to help with hosting Step-up this summer!  These beautiful flowers make an excellent Christmas present idea. Poinsettias are available in red, white, and pink.  Prices are: 6.5” for $10, 8” for $25, 10” for $30.

There is a minimum order of 100 plants so we are hoping each family will try to order between 3-10 plants. Please reach out to your networks to place orders. Orders and payment need to be placed by Saturday, November 16th and will be available for pickup on November 30th during the second selection day at JF  Carmichael School between 10:00 am – 3:30 pm for you to deliver to your networks.  If you are interested in purchasing poinsettias, please print and fill in the order form

Please collect orders from your friends and family and then count up all your orders and put your total order in on the online order form as a single order. (Please note that there is a shortage of white plants this year so there may not be any available by the time we get our order in. if that is the case, we will contact anyone with orders that can't be fulfilled to ask if they would like an alternate colour.)

Thank you for supporting CISV Waterloo…It takes a village to host a Village!
