Set a fundraising goal

Check out our outcomes page to get an idea on what your fundraising efforts can help us achieve. Your fundraising goal is a great way to motivate your supporters and allows you to track how much you’ve raised.

Make the first donation

Even a small gift of $25, or maybe $50, shows your commitment, and will encourage others to donate.

Share on social media, in your office, anywhere you can!

Share your page across your social channels and email to encourage your family, friends and colleagues to support you in your effort to raise funds. You can also share your own story as to why you are raising funds, or one of our graduate stories to demonstrate the impact of your gift. If you have been waiting for that right time to ask your friends, now is definitely the time to seek their support. We also have posters you can download to promote your fundraiser.

Use the Youth Opportunities handle @youth_opportunities to tag us on Facebook or Instagram so we can help promote your fundraiser.

For Facebook fundraisers, use Facebook to create your own fundraising page for your birthday or just for fun. Login to Facebook and search fundraisers, set up your birthday or general fundraiser and select Youth Opportunities Association as your charity. Then add your own personal fundraising message and share with your networks – it is that easy!
