Start a fundraising campaign


Thanks for your interest in supporting the Young Center! Not only do fundraising campaigns help to raise crucial donations for our work, but they also help raise awareness. Campaigns can also be a lot of fun! There are several ways you can get involved: 

Host a house party or happy hour: House parties are a simple, intimate, and fun way to raise money.  Held in your home, a fundraising house party can help you raise thousands of dollars within just a couple of short hours. You can also see if your favorite bar or restaurant hosts charity parties.

Start a Facebook Fundraiser: Help support the Young Center using Facebook fundraising tools. They’re an easy and effective way to raise money while also educating your friends about our work. To host a Facebook fundraiser, click here.

Donate your birthday, or proceeds from a race, to the Young Center. Instead of gifts this year, ask your friends and family to donate to the Young Center. Running a race anytime soon? You can use that opportunity to raise funds as well. Set a fundraising target on our EveryDayHero page and then invite your community to support your goal! You can share a photo, write about why helping immigrant children in detention matters to you, and track to the total amount of donations made to your campaign all in one easy-to-use place.

Become a Young Center Ambassador: On certain days throughout the year, the Young Center hosts online giving drives. Our ambassadors work with us to spread awareness about our mission and raise funds by sharing emails and social media posts throughout the day. Sign-up here to get involved!
