Magna International Inc. is proud to be celebrating the 31st anniversary of the Magna Hoedown on Friday, September 13 and Saturday, September 14, 2019.
The Magna Hoedown is the largest annual fundraiser in York Region and has raised over 12 million dollars for hundreds of local charities, non-profits, and community groups throughout its history. In addition to the funds raised, the Hoedown impacts the community by: hosting the Magna Student Hoedown, a free concert and luncheon for over 1,000 York Region students with disabilities; fostering the arts through the Magna Hoedown Showdown country-music talent competition; maintaining a zero-waste policy to enhance environmental sustainability; and by offering an opportunity for York Region residents to become engaged in their community.
This year, 20 York Region charities, non-profits, and community groups will be selected as recipients of the Hoedown proceeds. The selection of all Hoedown recipients is based on the needs of the organization, as well as their ability to successfully complete all tasks required, as identified in the “Recipient Expectations” document, below. Smaller organizations are encouraged to submit Collaborative Applications, which are explained in the "Collaborative Applications & Agreement" document, below.

Decisions will be communicated along with an official public announcement during National Volunteer Week, April 7-13, 2019. All applicants will be notified of the final selections.
Smaller organizations are encouraged to submit a Collaborative Application to the Magna Hoedown. A Collaborative shall consist of more than one organization working together and recognized as one, single Hoedown Recipient at the 2019 Magna Hoedown.
To ensure each Collaborative meets all Hoedown "Recipient Expectations," Magna Hoedown expects all organizations involved in a Collaborative to create and sign a Collaborative Agreement. This Agreement is the responsibility of the Collaborative and does not need to be included with your application. Should one party of the Collaborative not meet their Recipient Expectations it will not be the responsibility of the Magna Hoedown. The Magna Hoedown reserves the right to view the Collaborative Agreement at any time.
