Raise Money

You can support programs for teens and families by raising money for Families for Depression Awareness!

Here are 7 fundraising ideas:

  1. Raise money from friends and family using an online platform such as Facebook. Pick a goal and then spread the word!
  2. Participate in matching gift initiatives and/or employee giving campaigns at your workplace.
  3. Host a restaurant fundraising night in your local community. Find restaurants in your area that will donate a percentage of their proceeds on a chosen date to Families for Depression Awareness. Let people know by setting up a Facebook event, sending out emails, passing out flyers, making calls, and however else you communicate with your friends, family, and community members.
  4. Shop on AmazonSmile, a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The AmazonSmile Foundation donates 0.5% of the purchase price to the charitable organization of your choice. This link directs you to smile.amazon.com and pre-selects Families for Depression Awareness as your designated charity. Whenever you are shopping with Amazon.com, start at smile.amazon.com.
  1. Lead your own Strides Against Stigma virtual walk, run, or bike-a-thon. Select a date and a goal, set up a crowdfunding page, and invite friends and family to donate or participate to support your efforts.
  2. Designate Families for Depression Awareness as your charity on PayPal, then make no-fee donations through the PayPal Giving Fund.
  3. Create your own customized fundraising event such as a dinner, bake sale, or car wash. Email valerie@familyaware.org for ideas and tips.
