You want to change the world. We can help. Start by creating a fundraising campaign following the seven simple steps below. Together we can reach some of the most desperate and remote places on earth in the Name of Jesus Christ.
1. Pick a Project
When disasters ravage countries around the world or strike communities at home, our response teams hit the ground—often within hours—with food, medicine, clean water, and other life-saving relief. In some of the hardest-hit places we stay and help rebuild, all with the purpose showing God’s redeeming love. Choose to support any that are close to your heart.
2. Select a Campaign Type
There are so many creative fundraising ideas out there. We’ve heard of kids running lemonade stands, teenagers asking for donations instead of birthday gifts, or adults donating baked goods to raise funds. The list is endless. You just need to settle on an idea that suits you best.
3. Register Your Campaign
Tell us who you are and which project you plan to support. Doing so means we can also keep you updated on the latest news from Samaritan’s Purse, which may help as you’re out fundraising.
There’s no disputing the power of prayer. We believe keeping God at the center is a fundamental part of every successful fundraising campaign. Before you start, while you’re campaigning, and after done, prayer is an important step.
5. Start Your Campaign
Your campaign has a face, now it’s time to give it some legs. We’ve partnered with FirstGiving so you can develop a personalized webpage. This makes it easier for you to publicize your campaign and accept donations online. A glass jar and word of mouth works just as well. All you need to do is send us a check to P.O. Box 3000, Boone, NC 28607.
6. Thank Your Supporters
Handwritten notes are always preferred. Personal emails come in a close second. Whether sent to mailboxes or inboxes, make sure to let your followers know how much you appreciate their spiritual and financial support.
7. Tell Us About It
When others “go and do likewise” (Luke 10:37), we want to hear about it. Share your story with us on Facebook and Twitter. You can also email us. Who knows, we might even come knocking on your door and ask you to share your thoughts on camera. Your story may inspire someone else to support Samaritan’s Purse as we help in Jesus’ Name.
