We’re excited to announce that Fund-a-Thon is here!
You may be wondering, “What’s a Fund-a-Thon?” It’s our annual peer-to-peer fundraiser! The goal is to work together in small fundraising teams over the next two months to raise money for abortion. Our former iterations of the event — Game-a-Thon, Bowl-a-Thon, and more — were our biggest fundraisers of their respective years and key to our budget, so we’ll need your help to make Fund-a-Thon 2020 a big success!
For those who are new to joining our cause, this is one of our greatest opportunities to raise money for DCAF throughout the year, so your involvement is crucial.
Today, we have witnessed an enormous increase in state and national restrictions that are designed specifically to deny access to abortion, especially for people of color and people with lower incomes. Now, more than ever, we need your help to ensure people calling our helpline are able to access the abortion care they need.
So how can you help? Create an online fundraising page, join or start a team, and commit to raising as much money as you can by asking your friends and family to donate.
You don’t have to be in D.C. to join in the FUNdraising!
If you have never fundraised before, don’t worry, you won’t be alone! We have all the resources you could need, including sample emails you can send, and we’ll regularly provide you with tips, tricks, and support. Plus, some of our seasoned fundraisers are always happy to help newbies out!
To kickstart the FUNdraising (We just can’t stop), join us for a Fund-a-Thon launch happy hour on Friday, March 6, at Town Tavern in Adams Morgan. You will be able to ask questions, connect with other DCAF volunteers, and begin raising money for our cause.
