We’re all unique, so why shouldn’t the way we give back be as one-of-a-kind as we are?

Today, just by being you, you can help make our community better by starting a personal fundraising campaign for EFAA to reduce family homelessness! Whether you choose to donate birthday money in lieu of gifts, sell lemonade, grow a mustache, or host a poker night, all the money you raise will go to helping hardworking families, the elderly and people with disabilities meet their most basic needs like food and housing when they have nowhere else to turn. It doesn’t matter if you’re 6 or 96, you have the ability to empower families in crisis to get back on their feet. The only question left is “What will you do?”

#GiveYourOwnWay Challenge for July: Hike to raise money for EFAA! By asking your friends to pledge a few cents per mile, your summer miles can make a difference.

Use Everyday Hero to Raise Money for EFAA!

Tips to make your campaign the best it can be:

  1. Share through all of your networks. Email, Facebook, Twitter- whatever you have, use it!
  2. Include information about EFAA that lets your friends and family know why this gift is most meaningful to you. Check out our mission page to learn more about what we do and how it helps the community we serve.
  3. Share progress updates to show how close you are to reaching your goal and encourage others to help you reach it.

Did you know? According to Blackbaud’s eNonprofit Benchmark study, it would take an organization 1,250 emails to receive one donation. However, for you? Only 4 emails would do the trick. Your support matters. Help us prevent family homelessness and empower families, seniors, and people with disabilities on their path to self-sufficiency by starting a campaign for EFAA today!
