How can I help?

I Want to Raise Funds for FARF. Where Do I Start?

The idea of fundraising can be a bit daunting, but it doesn't need to be! Start with the Fundraising Toolkit: A Complete Guide to Fundraising for FARF

We’ve developed some useful forms and templates to help your event run smoothly:

Before & during your event:

  • Contact List: Keep track of your invitees, participants, sponsors, donors & volunteers in one document.
  • Budget Tracker: Record your income & expenses as they come in. Choose the Basic Budget Tracker for smaller events such as a dinner, dance, garage or bake sale. Choose the Advanced Budget Tracker for larger events such as a 5K, golf tournament, banquet & auction, etc.
  • In-Kind Donation Form: Use this form to accept in-kind donations to your fundraiser.
  • Sponsorship Request Letter: How to ask businesses for sponsorships or donations.

After your event:

  • Event Round-up: A few simple questions about your event. This will also help us continue to help other families.
  • Reimbursement Request: This is only required if you would like FARF to reimburse any costs from your event. Costs will be deducted from the proceeds of your event.
  • Thank you letter: A template of a letter to thank your donors (FARF will also send a formal thank you letter).

Do you have a specific event in mind? Want to have a 5K but have no idea where to start? What about a concert or a dinner banquet? Use these step-by-step event planning guides to help:

Sometimes it is best to start simple. Reach out to your family, friends and community with a heartfelt letter.
