About National Cupcake Day™


National Cupcake Day is a coordinated Canadian event to support local shelters, SPCAs, and Humane Societies. In 2018, animal lovers across Canada raised over $700,000 in support of their favourite Societies. The campaign has raised $3.15 million to date!

Register for National Cupcake Day and host your own Cupcake Party at home, school*, work, or anywhere you think people will enjoy a tasty treat! Your guests donate to the participating animal welfare charity of your choice, in exchange for a delicious cupcake. Can’t get everyone together?  No problem!  Collect funds online and get cupcakes to your donors at your convenience or send a virtual cupcake with a heartfelt thank you!

National Cupcake Day is Monday, February 25, 2019, but you can hold your party on whatever day works best for you! The event is supported by the Ontario SPCA on behalf of participating local shelters, SPCAs, and Humane Societies.

Save lives with cupcakes and “bake” a difference for animals in need! Your baking will have a significant impact on the shelters, clinics and animal welfare services in your community, ensuring that their life-saving work continues.

*Please be sure to consult with your school or other public institution to ensure you are following any food restrictions or guidelines (including nut free or healthy school initiatives).
