Whether you want to raise money for your program fees or for orphanage donations, fundraising is a great option. Not only do fundraisers raise funds, but they also raise awareness of OSSO's mission and purpose. With fundraising you help bring money to the orphanages while encouraging people to volunteer! A fantastic win-win!
Ask local businesses, people you know, or your employer to make donations using a letter for donations.
Start a fundraiser online like this one. We will help you create the account and send you the link to share it with family and friends through your social media. Simply complete and submit this form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We use YouCaring but there are other options you can check out as well if you'd like to start an online fundraiser on your own. Here are some:
Bake Sale | Ice cream social | CAR WASH | COIN DRIVE
Other easy and fun fundraiser ideas are to host local coin drives, car washes, bake sales, or ice cream socials. Click here to download an entire list of fundraiser ideas.
Important note: Feel free to print the forms provided to aid in your fundraising goals. Add your personal touch, but please keep in mind no photos of the children may be publicized. Personal photos may be used in small fundraising efforts such as door-to-door or community events. But do not publish photos of children through media efforts.
We welcome new fundraising ideas, especially those within your work and community. Some of our past volunteers have even used Etsy shops and personal startup businesses as a way to give back to OSSO. Contribute to their affiliate businesses or to get inspired to start your own. Scroll down or click here to learn more.
October for Orphans
Every October we host what we call October for Orphans. This month-long event is a call to people everywhere to increase their efforts to raise donations for the orphans we serve. Throughout the month we post about fundraisers you can join in on and encourage you to start your own. Learn more and join us this October.
The Giving Tree
Join us in the month of December for a fundraiser we do called The Giving Tree. You can donate any amount online or stop by our office, and we will show you what your money can do to make a difference in the lives of orphans. All you do is click on the ornament that has the price you would like to donate and that's it! You can also donate your time too! Learn more here and join us this December.
