Start a Fundraiser

Are you someone who could rally your community, workplace and friends? If so, individual and business fundraiser options are endless! Fundraisers can be anything from requesting a company match for donations, gifting proceeds from a rummage sale to the project, or proposing that your workplace has a “denim Friday” where colleagues give $5 to the project to wear jeans. Get creative, the sky is the limit! Ideas and more information are on our expansion fundraiser page.
