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 campaign 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.
First, decide which nonprofit(s) you want to fundraise for. Once you have decided, go to the nonprofit(s) page and click on the Create a Fundraising Campaign button, where you will be asked to create a donor account. It doesn't take long!
You'll automatically be entered into your donor account. Click on the tab My Fundraisers to create each campaign. Have fun completing your campaign, because your story of why you're so passionate about this cause will inspire your friends to be part of this awesome work in your community.
Have you finished completing your fundraising campaign? Submit it for approval to the nonprofit you're supporting. Once they approve it, your campaign will be live to the world!
Don't Forget the Best Part!
