Fundraise Your Way - Celebrate & Dedicate

Fundraise Your Way & Celebrate

Celebrate & dedicate a special occasion - a birthday, a wedding, an anniversary,
a special milestone, or honor a loved one in lieu of gifts or flowers.

No matter what you choose, set a goal, have fun and ask your family and friends to join you!

Fundraising Ideas & Inspiration

Arthritis warriors and their loved ones are continually coming up with new ideas to raise awareness and support for the arthritis community. Check out these featured fundraisers. 

Celebrating a Birthday & World Record 

Raised $2,000

On his 70th birthday, USC Trojan Masters Track ClubCoach F. Eugene Driver III set a world record for the 200-meter run — in jeans! 

Coach Driver wanted to benefit people living with arthritis,
while raising money in the community.

Honoring My Dad

Raised $530

For my dad’s birthday I decided to bike 100-miles to honor him by raising awareness and support for the Arthritis Foundation.

My dad has RA, and no matter how much pain he is in, he keeps putting one foot in front of the other.  He inspires me every day to keep pushing when life gets hard.

Making a Difference For Our Patients

Raised $350

We had a variety of giving campaigns that our employees could give to, but then we started brainstorming ideas to involve both our employees and our patients to support the arthritis community.

Fundraising Ideas

DIY fundraising allows you bring any idea to life your way - anytime, anywhere. 
Whatever you chose, chose something you enjoy doing, ask for help and have fun along the way! 

Host a Party
Ask attendees to donate in exchange for being part of the fundraiser. Consider asking local businesses to consider donating the space, food, beverages auction or raffle items or guest giveaway's and prizes.
Friendly Competition
Invite others to join your group and create some friendly fundraising competition! Have players buy-in by giving a donation, raise money to play, or ask people to support you with a donation!
Celebrate & Dedicate a Special day or a Special Person
Share your loved one’s story with friends and family regardless of where they live. Visitors to your page can take action by making a donation in lieu of gifts or flowers, posting messages of encouragement and share your page with family and friends.
Fundraising at the workplace can be a great way to engage employees, customers, and your community. Track your steps and add up your miles during a certain month! 
Athletic Events & Schools
Choose a home game or a school wide activity/event and designate it to create awareness and support. Involve other school groups, such as athletic teams, cheerleaders, clubs and organizations like student council, parents, and faculty to show their school spirit and support for those living with arthritis.
