There are multiple ways to raise money for a program you feel strongly about that can do tremendous good for Syrians in need. Take a look through our programs and see if one of them stands out to you in your desire to help.
Once you’ve narrowed down a program, here are some ways to raise funds:
Gift a Milestone
Do you have an upcoming birthday, graduation or wedding? In lieu of receiving gifts, ask your guests to make a contribution to an SRD program you’re passionate about. You can direct them to our website and/or we can even send you materials to have available at your event for more information. Get in touch with us if you decide to do this and we’ll do whatever we can to help.
Honor a Loved One with a Donation
There’s no better way to honor a loved one than with a donation in his/her name. Whether it’s a new child in the family or a close family member who passed away, making a donation on someone’s behalf is a beautiful way of honoring that person. And if you’d like us to send the loved one a letter mentioning your name and the donation amount, we’re happy to do so. Just let us know. You can mail us a check with a note that includes the name of the honoree and anything you’d like to include in the letter. Soon we’ll make this possible through our website as well!
Host an Event
Use your creative talents, or pool together the creative talents of your community, and host a bake sale, walk-a-thon, outdoor concert with a local band, spoken-word performance, a play, jeopardy night, or anything that appeals to and is logistically possible for you. We’re happy to promote your event on social media and would also love to feature it in our email newsletter. Send us a message! And donations can be mailed to our office or submitted through our website.
