How to Start Your Own Back to School Fundraiser!

  • When you click on the "Start my team" button on this page, a new window will open, and you'll see a list of all our fantastic fundraising teams!

  • On that same page, click the "Join Team" button to create a profile and build your own fundraising page!

What should I include on my fundraising page?

We know getting started can be overwhelming, so take a look at what some other teams have written for inspiration!

Your fundraising page should include:

  • A monetary goal! $50 can purchase clothing for one child, so for example, if you choose a goal of $1,000, it equals new school clothes for 20 children!

  • A short description of why you have chosen to support this cause. This will help you when you ask your family, friends and network to support you.

  • Images and/or video - we have them available to download on this page below!

My fundraising page is set up. Now what?

Here are a few ways to get donations coming in:

  • Send an email! Get your email list together and send a nice note asking for support with a link to your page.

  • Get social! Built in to your page are social media icons to make it very easy to share your fundraiser to your social networks.

  • Get competitive! Is your office, organization, congregation or business starting a fundraiser? Challenge another group to see who can reach their goal first!

  • Don't forget to say "Thank You!" Consider publicly thanking your donors via social media, with a quick email, or even handwritten note. They will love it!

Where can I find images and videos so my page looks nice?

We have them RIGHT HERE!
