How It Works
It’s easy to collect donations in support of SAVE through our online fundraising pages! You can create your own custom page and SAVE will provide you with tips to make it a success. Once your page is created share the link with your family, friends and on social media to help you reach your fundraising goal.
Set up a fundraising page. You will need to create an account so you can login in at your convenience, update your page, and share your hard work with your family and friends! Also, be thinking of a couple sentences to explain why you want to fundraise for SAVE and set a goal dollar amount you want to raise.
Stay on top of your fundraising goal by checking your page often and sharing it frequently. If you’re not organizing an in-person event, setting an end date may help you keep on track with accomplishing your fundraising goal.
Once you’ve reached your fundraising goal or if your campaign ends, SAVE will notify you to finalize your fundraising efforts. If you’d like to extend your goal or timeline, please let us know!
