You’ve read the statistics, learned about how prevention works, and now you’re ready to help.
You want to do something fun and meaningful to help raise money for Darkness to Light. The good news is, there are lots of ways to give. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
BIRTHDAY GIVING CAMPAIGN
Have a birthday coming up? Fundraise in honor of your special day. Ask friends and family to donate your age, some combination of numbers from the year you were born, or just to give an amount in lieu of gifts.
SPORTING EVENT GIVING CAMPAIGN
Use your athletic skills to fundraise for child sexual abuse prevention. Your community will be motivated by your commitment to setting a goal and to Darkness to Light’s mission of ending child sexual abuse.
Feel compelled to recruit your co-workers to the cause? Create a team and brainstorm some ideas to get everyone involved.
HOLD A FILM SCREENING
Your fundraiser can be an educational event when you host a Darkness to Light film screening. We offer a screening kit that walks you through how to set up the screening and how it can energize your community to make change.
RAISE FUNDS IN HONOR OF SOMEONE
Tie your fundraising efforts to the honor or memory of a friend or family member.
CUSTOM GIVING CAMPAIGN
Feel free to be creative and come up with your own custom campaign. Have a talent to share? Use it to fundraise. Traveling to another continent? Let it inspire your community.
