Volunteering & Fundraising
There are many opportunities to become part of cadet activities. Your involvement will benefit the cadet program. Any contribution is welcome, from a few minutes to a few hours. There are always tasks available, such as driving in a carpool, fundraising and supervising the cadet canteen. Parents can get involved in Sponsoring Committee activities in many ways. Contact the Sponsoring Committee to help you decide on the best way to help. All contributions of your time, knowledge, or money are appreciated!
If you're shopping online, please consider doing so through flipgive.com!
Buying through FlipGive is a way to donate to 742 and make your gift go even further!
Get a start on your holiday gift-buying and help support the 742 National Capital Air Cadet Squadron with flipgive.com, a safe, simple, no-cost (to you) way to shop at the stores and businesses you love – including online – while supporting our cadets.
How it works:
- Visit www.flipgive.com or download the app (available on Google Play and Apple’s App Store) and go to the Teams tab at the top of the page.
- On the Teams page, go to the "Find a Team" box in the middle of the page and enter 742 National Capital Air Cadet Squadron (our squadron will come up).
If you’re using the app, you’ll want to Join an Existing Team and enter our code: PKVDT6
- On the Results page, you'll see 742 National Capital Air Cadet Squadron, and boxes for "Donate Now," "Shop Online," “Gift Cards” and various gift categories.
- If you select "Shop Online," you will be redirected to the websites of your favourite participating retailers, where you can either shop directly from their online stores or purchase gift cards.
- The best part is, for every purchase you make through FlipGive, 742 National Capital Air Cadet Squadron will automatically receive a donation of anywhere between 2% and 20% - depending on the retailer – while you get the full amount of what you've spent. For example, if you buy a $5 gift card for Starbucks, you will have $5 to spend at Starbucks, while 742 will also receive a 2% donation at no cost to you. Your gift goes even further!
- Because each purchase you make through Flipgive supports our squadron, you can buy gifts (or gift cards) for others all year long and the recipient does not even have to know that you've used Flipgive.
Please support our fundraising campaign all year long, and please share our FlipGive team number with your friends and family who shop online so that they can help support our cadets.
