- Embrace Relief’s Group FUNdraising program offers you the chance to start your own fundraiser for a humanitarian cause that you’re passionate about.
- Online fundraisers are easy to set up, but Embrace Relief offers benefits to online fundraising that go far beyond a simple web page.
- Get started today with a Group FUNdraiser and together we can make a life-changing impact on the lives of thousands of vulnerable people.
Changing the world starts with one person, one idea, one spark of initiative. That’s why, in addition to our own humanitarian aid programs that operate continuously, Embrace Relief also offers people like you the opportunity to make an impact through a program we call Group FUNdraising.
What is Group FUNdraising? To put it simply: it is a fundraising drive organized by you, in support of a cause you’re passionate about, organized in collaboration with Embrace Relief. Though we call it ‘Group FUNdraising,” there’s no requirement on the number of people you need to start a project – it just means that your campaign belongs to you and whoever you work with.
Perfect For College Applications
If you’re a high school student or advisor looking for a one-of-a-kind charity experience perfect for college applications, a community group or business looking to build teamwork in a collaborative environment, or simply just an individual looking to make a difference and support some of the world’s most vulnerable people, then Group FUNdraising with Embrace Relief is the perfect choice for you.
Now, you may be thinking, “Online fundraising is easier than ever nowadays thanks to simple-to-setup fundraising websites. Why should I host a fundraiser with Embrace Relief?” The answer is that while Embrace Relief will also provide you a web page to help you raise money, Group FUNdraising is so much more than that. Here are just some of the benefits of starting a Group FUNdraiser with us:
Our Network: As a charitable organization with more than 15 years of experience, Embrace Relief has built up relationships with hundreds of partner organizations in the 45+ countries where we operate. Do you want to raise money to send food to people in Yemen or Pakistan? We can help you do that. Do you want to build water wells in Cameroon or Tanzania? We can help you do that, too. Our vast network and our wide range of humanitarian programs gives you plenty of options to pick a cause, a location, and a fundraising target that is right for you.
Our Know-How and Support: Whether this is your first time organizing a fundraising project, or you’ve done it before, Embrace Relief can offer guidance and tools to help ensure your success. Our fundraising experience means we’ll be able to answer any question you might have on getting started and pushing towards your fundraising goal. And our professional marketing staff is standing by to create promotional materials that will catch the eye of potential donors.
See The World: All Group FUNdraisers are also invited to visit the communities their project is helping, if they wish. You’ll have the chance to experience culture, cuisine, and sightseeing in a new country, while also taking time to see, meet and talk with the people whose lives you’ve changed because of your fundraiser. It truly is a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
