organize Your Own Fundraiser
Bring your community together to have fun and support a good cause at the same time! Past community fundraisers have included fashion shows, teas, concerts, bake sales, garage sales and Casino Nights. See the materials below for helpful hints. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on putting together a community fundraiser.
Host An Event
Fundraising parties can take a couple of different forms. They can be "pay-to-play" events like wine tastings or Casino Nights with a cover charge, or they can be free events where the host makes request for donations at the party. Whichever type of party you choose to host, make sure you tell your guests from the outset that it is a fundraiser for STAND!. Surprise requests for donations aren't fun for anyone!
Resources & Tips
Dine/Shop & Donate
You can encourage your favorite restaurant or business to have a dine or shop for STAND! event and get the word out to family and friends. The business will usually designate a time frame for a portion of purchases made to be donated to STAND! Let us know what you have planned and we will help get the word out too!
STAND! enjoys wonderful relationships with many of our local faith communities. Talk to your congregation's Outreach or Mission Committee about holding a special collection to benefit STAND!. Contact us for information about scheduling a STAND! speaker to address your congregation!
