Fundraising pages are for companies, groups, or individuals to help raise funds for MAM, not for personal fundraising purposes.

Tips for your fundraiser!
Be sure to include:
A monetary goal! $50 can purchase clothing for one child, so for example, if you choose a goal of $1,000, it equals new school clothes for 20 children!
A short description of why you have chosen to support this cause. This will help you when you ask your family, friends and network to support you.
Images and/or video - we have them available to here!
Here are a few ways to get donations coming in:
Send an email! Get your email list together and send a nice note asking for support with a link to your page. (view a sample email)
Be social! Built in to your fundraising page are social media icons to make it very easy to share your fundraiser to your social networks. (view sample social media posts)
Encourage healthy competition! Challenge a neighboring business, organization, classroom or another department to see who can reach their goal first
Don't forget to say "Thank You!" Consider publicly thanking your donors via social media, with a quick email, or even handwritten note. They will love it!

[Business/Organization Name] prides itself on giving back to our community. To continue this tradition, we have partnered with Memorial Assistance Ministries to help children get new school clothing through their Back to School program. Families living in poverty in our community often have a hard time paying the bills and feeding their children. Additional costs for Back to School, means they might fall behind on rent or bills.
We encourage our [employees/patrons/customers/clients/etc.] to join us in supporting MAM’s Back to School Program. Each $50 donation means a child will start the school year with new uniforms, ready to learn. Please consider sponsoring a child today!
