Q: What type of fundraiser should I host? 

A: DIY Fundraisers are as varied and unique as the hosts themselves! Let your passions and interests guide you; the best fundraisers are those that reflect the organizers or those you may be hosting the fundraiser to celebrate or remember. Choose a fundraiser that excites you! 

We have been the beneficiary of a wide variety of creative fundraisers, including, but not limited to the following:
