YOU Are A Champion
You have a passion: It could be for animal welfare, fighting poverty, supporting the arts, or raising awareness about mental illness. We bet you also have a wonderful network of friends and colleagues in your life.
Arizona Gives offers you a vehicle to connect your passion and your network by creating your own personal fundraiser to raise money for local nonprofits supporting your passion. As an individual fundraiser for your chosen nonprofit(s), you set the goal, you get the word out, and you become a champion for your cause.
BUSINESSES: You are welcome to create a fundraising page for a specific nonprofit too!
Creating Your Fundraiser Page
Follow the steps provided below (or download the instructions) to create your unique page. NOTE: Arizona Gives uses a technology platform called Neon One/Neon Raise.
To create a fundraising page, start by searching for your chosen nonprofit from either the Arizona Gives home page search or by Browsing Nonprofits. Once you find the nonprofit’s tile, click “Learn More” in the lower right corner of the tile (see below).
Next, you will see your chosen nonprofit's profile page. Now click the “Create A Fundraiser” button.
You will be redirected to the Arizona Gives fundraising platform to create your fundraising page. Simply fill out the 4 fields on the left side of the screen to describe your fundraising campaign, including your goal. If you would like to add your own 'hero image', please make sure the uploaded image is
While entering your fundraising campaign details, the right side of the page will simultaneously display exactly how it will look online. For example, if you upload a photo, you will instantly see how it will appear on the website.
Have fun completing your page, because the story of why you're so passionate about this cause will inspire your friends to be part of this awesome work in your community.
Once you've completed all fields for your fundraising page, click “Save as Draft” or “Save and Publish." (You will be able to return to your fundraising page later to either publish it or unpublish, then edit and re-publish it if needed.)
Almost done! You will now be asked to create/log into your account on the Arizona Gives fundraising platform, Neon Raise. This is a critical step that will save your fundraising page so you can access it again to make changes, track donations, etc. To create your Neon Raise fundraiser account, click "Don't Have An Account? Sign Up."
NOTE: If you already have an Arizona Gives donor login or nonprofit login, it will not work here. For security purposes, each person creating a fundraiser page must create a new fundraiser login specifically for the fundraising system.
Accessing and Promoting Your Fundraiser Page
Promote Your Fundraiser:
Share your excitement! Anything raised between March 16 and April 6 (Arizona Gives Day) will automatically be tied to the organization's total giving and count towards incentive prizes.
If you clicked “Save and Publish” upon completing your fundraising page, an email will have been sent to you containing your fundraising page URL. Copy and paste this URL into emails and social media posts and share your story/passion to encourage friends, family, and colleagues to donate!
