Charity Fundraiser for The Breakfast Club of Canada with JLL!
When it comes to hosting Trivia, it’s not just all fun and games. In recent years, Quiz Coconut has been asked to partake in helping raise money for various charities across Canada, and we were so happy to be able to help be a part of these amazing events!
One of the biggest events we’ve been a part of was a fundraising event in 2022 with Jones Lang Lasalle to raise money for the Breakfast Club of Canada.
How much was raised?
Over $40,000!! Considering each dollar can provide breakfasts for two children, that’s a whopping 80,000 breakfasts!
Was it a success?
It was considered such a success we were asked back in 2023 for another fundraiser which also raised close t0 $40,000!
What is the Breakfast Club of Canada?
The Breakfast Club of Canada is a non-profit organization that strives to provide consistent access to nutritious breakfasts for Canadian children in need.
Established in Quebec in 1994, the program has since expanded to reach over 243,000 children in 1,809 schools across the country!
The program is based on the belief that breakfast is an essential meal that helps children start their day on the right foot, improving their academic performance, concentration, and overall health.
By partnering with local communities, schools, and businesses, the Breakfast Club of Canada is able to provide a range of food options to children who may otherwise go hungry, helping them reach their full potential and thrive.

In 2015, JLL partnered with the Breakfast Club of Canada for the first time. Since then, JLL Canada has been committed to assisting children in need and has raised over $500,000 in total for the Breakfast club of Canada through many different avenues.
2020 was an incredibly successful year for raising funds, and JLL proudly surpassed their goal by over $12,000.
From races, silent auctions, internal donations and more, JLL keeps finding new ways to get creative in their fundraising efforts, and year after year it pays off.
Where does Quiz Coconut Come in?
We were asked to provide interactive, inclusive fun for around 20 teams of 6 – some JLL employees and others were companies invited to the event by buying a table. We worked with the JLL event team to plan their event meticulously. We met on Zoom to discuss timings, prizing, content, running order and how we can maximise the donations. We split the quiz in two parts around a social half hour in the middle for mingling and networking. We brought all of the materials needed along with a sound system, so their guests could just turn up and enjoy!
Finally… Was it worth using Quiz Coconut?
YES! Their ROI was around 16 times the investment in our services…..!
