Fundraise with Fostering Great Ideas

Interested in fundraising? Here’s how to get started…

You can help us raise funds through your workplace, social or religious groups, schools, community, or even your family gatherings. Experience the joy of bringing a group together for a great cause.

When you host an event, all your proceeds improve the lives of children in foster care.

Suggested fundraising activities:

  • Jeans /casual day (pay a small amount to wear jeans for a day)
  • Bake sale
  • Penny Wars (compete against other teams to collect change)
  • Themed lunch, dinner, or social gathering
  • Sport team cheering contest (which rival team can raise the most funds?)
  • Holiday parties
  • Chili cook-off
  • Bingo/trivia night
  • Mini Olympics/fitness challenge
  • …and of course, join us for our annual Great Big Benefit Bash
