Want to rally your friends and family to support Direct Relief? Creating a fundraising webpage is an easy way to bring people together for a cause. Below is a step-by-step guide to help you get started.
1. Visit the CrowdRise website
2. Click on the “Fundraise for this Charity” button
3. Select “Start a new fundraiser”
4. Tell us about the fund
Enter a descriptive name that will be used as the initial title for your fundraising web page. If you would like the funds you raise for Direct Relief to fund a specific program, make sure to mention that in the name (example: Johnson Family fundraiser for Maternal and Child Health). You can edit this later in the Champion Center.
Entering a fundraising goal encourages people to give generously to your cause.
About Your Fundraiser
A short statement to display with the Fund Name allows you to add a few more details, if you choose. This is not required and can be edited later in the Champion Center.
5. Add a photo
6. In order to access, monitor and make edits to your fundraising page, sign up through Facebook or manually by entering:
- First Name
- Last Name
Once you have set up your account you will be able to email a link to your fundraising page to your friends and easily share on Facebook, Twitter, etc. The money you raise is automatically sent to Direct Relief so all you need to do is share your page and have fun while you do it!
If you have further questions about fundraising, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for choosing to support Direct Relief. Happy fundraising!
