What is Cupcake Day for the Ontario SPCA?

Cupcake Day is a fundraiser in support of the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society to help animals in need in communities across Ontario. As a registered charity that does not receive government funding, the Ontario SPCA depends on the generosity of donors to help animals in need. By taking part in Cupcake Day, you are providing urgently needed care and shelter for animals waiting to find a loving home.

When is Cupcake Day for the Ontario SPCA?

Cupcake Day is officially Monday, February 26, 2024, but you can fundraise and host your cupcake party any day in January or February that works for you!

How can I support my local Ontario SPCA animal centre?

When you register for Cupcake Day, you will have the opportunity to choose any one of Ontario SPCA animal centres to receive all of your proceeds.

Do I have to bake cupcakes to support Cupcake Day?

Not a fan of cupcakes? No problem! Bake (or buy) cookies, cakepops, pupcakes (can't forget about the dogs) or a healthy alternative! Imagine fruit served in little muffin tin liners.. too cute! The possibilities are endless!

This event can be as creative as you want it to be! Host cupcake decorating competitions, come up with amazing new recipes, or do whatever you can think of to help the animals!

What is a Personal Fundraising Centre?

Your Personal Fundraising Centre is your online fundraising headquarters and contains all the tools you need to connect with your supporters, receive donations and track your progress. Send emails (we even have email templates for you to use!), or post on social media and personalize your page with stories, pictures, and videos. 

Your Personal Fundraising Page is totally safe and secure and it’s the most convenient for everyone!

Can I fundraise on a team?

Yes, squad up! When you register, you can select to register as a part of a team. When you do so, you will create both a Cupcake Day Team Personal Fundraising Page, as well as an Individual Personal Fundraising Page. You can use the Team Personal Fundraising Page to track team fundraising and ask your friends, family and colleagues to join you.

What is the minimum age requirement? Can my kids fundraise?

We welcome bakers of all ages to participate in Cupcake Day, with the approval and help of a parent or guardian. When your youth registers, they will need to electronically sign a waiver indicating they have your permission to participate in the event.
