Personal Fundraising for JOIN

Are you overwhelmed by the tragedy of homelessness in our community? Do you want to be a part of the solution, but aren’t sure how to help? Consider setting up a personal fundraising page to help raise critical funds for JOIN. With your help, we can make sure that more of our homeless neighbors have a place to call home.

What exactly is personal fundraising?

Personal Fundraising is a lot like crowdsourcing – it allows individuals like you to be empowered to raise funds and awareness for a cause you care about. People are more likely to give generously to an organization if they have a personal relationship with someone who works, volunteers, or donates to that organization. It’s also fun! When you set up a personal fundraising page, you get to set a goal and watch as your giving thermometer rises with each gift. It is a satisfying and tangible way to help raise money to open the doors to housing.
