What if I can’t have my stand on June 5th?

  • You are more than welcome to host your lemonade stand on or before June 5th. Hosting additional lemonade stands leading up to June 5th is a great way to raise additional funds and increase your chances of winning a prize.

Can I give out tax receipts?

  • Any donation made online will receive a tax receipt. If someone donates cash and would like a tax receipt, please have them fill out your pledge form so we can provide them with a tax receipt (pledge forms can be found on the resources page).
