Host A Fundraiser

Create an event to remember

Did you know that you can build your own event in support of United Way?

Creating your own virtual fundraising event is easy and you can do it at home, at your workplace, and in the community! We’ve got a few tips to get you started:

  • Start with a hobby or something you feel passionate about
  • Do some research to identify a particular need in your community
  • Pick an activity you can do virtually with your friends, family, and/or colleagues – we can still do things together to support community, even when we’re apart.

Whatever you decide, when you show your local love, your community always benefits!

Ready to get started? For even more ideas, and  tools for fundraising with your friends or workplace check out our Toolkit and Resource Library!
