Micro-fundraising is a great way to give back to the Child Abuse Prevention Center in a way that lets your personality and interests shine through! Through your own individual fundraising efforts and ideas, you and/or your group, solicit donations from family, friends and/or colleagues to support our cause. All funds raised will go directly to our in-home child abuse prevention programs. You come up with an idea and we assist you in your fundraising efforts. Whether this means creating an online fundraising page through MightyCause, assisting with flyers or simply marketing the event through social media, email blasts and outreach events, we are here to help YOU host a successful event!
Listed below are a few fundraisers to give you an idea to create your own!
