Performing Random Acts of Kindness

A random act of kindness is a surprise gesture to someone who needs a little brightness in their world.

If you wish to perform an act of kindness that’s sponsored by us we can provide you with fliers or some business cards depending on your need. Simply fill in an Act Proposal Form and select ‘no’ for funding and ‘yes’ for promotional material. Please allow up to 4 weeks for your proposal to be reviewed and processed.

Example Acts of Kindness

  • You could give someone who is looking for work a ride to their interview.
  • You could offer to babysit for someone who can’t afford a professional sitter.
  • If someone you know has a pet, they may need help with supplies.
  • You can spend some regular time with the elderly who might not see people very often.

What Help is Available?

I have a really cool idea for an act but I can’t afford it. Can you help?

You can apply for funding for an act by filling in the Random Acts Proposal Form

Please note that we will only provide funding to facilitate acts of kindness. We cannot provide funds to pay utility bills.

I completed an act of kindness, but did not submit an Act Proposal Form for it. Can I still submit a form for my act and get funds for reimbursement?

No, we can only fund acts that have first gone through our act proposal submission, review, and approval processes.

If I need funds is there a maximum amount?

If you haven’t requested funding from us before you can request anything from $1-499 (USD), depending on your requirements. We will require a full plan of your act and receipts for all your expenditures after the event. Any monies provided by us and not accounted for by receipts must be returned to Random Acts.

If you wish to apply for funding for an act and understand the above stipulations, please complete our Act Proposal Form and Proposed Budget form (which will need to be attached to your act proposal).

Once your act has been completed, please fill in the final report form and attach this final budget form along with copies of any receipts. Any funds or materials provided by Random Acts that is not spent or used will need to be returned to us.

I need more than $500 (USD). Does that mean you can’t help me?

We will fund acts for between $500-1000 (USD) under some circumstances.

You must have completed a lower value act in the past, provided all receipts and paid back any excess funds.

The act must involve work hours (e.g., spending a few days helping harvest a community garden). We will not provide funds to purchase $1000 of food for a food bank for example.

I want to do a fundraiser for Random Acts. Is there anything I need to do?

Thank you so much for wanting to raise funds for us. Please fill in a volunteer fundraiser agreement and we will contact you further.
