FUNDRAISING CHAMPIONS

Becoming a Fundraising Champion is easy!

What is Crowdrise?

Crowdrise is a fun fundraising platform where you can create a personal fundraising page to ask your friends and family to support your favorite charity. You can donate your birthday, involve your sports team or sponsor a college prep class – the sky’s the limit!

How does crowdfunding support YALLA’s mission?

You can have a direct impact on and create a bright future for refugee and immigrant youth. You can help our students learn english, catch up on schooling, play soccer and go to college – all by donating to YALLA. Your financial support can also help YALLA to continue to expand our programs in order to meet ever growing needs and motivate even more youth.

TIPS AND TRICKS

For a Successful Campaign:

  • Select the “Manage Campaign” tab to send a personalized message to your friends and family with a link to your fundraising page and ask them to support your fundraiser. You can send a message via Email, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+.

  • Donate to your own fundraiser so that friends and family will see that you donated which will make them more likely to donate too.

  • Once the donations are processed, your donors will receive a confirmation page and a tax-receipt acknowledging their gift from Network for Good, who processes donations made on the Crowdrise platform.

  • Make sure to thank all of the people who supported your fundraiser and let them know that YALLA thanks them too.

  • Give yourself a huge high-five from us. You are helping to improve lives! Know that your support is invaluable and that you are making a huge impact.
