You can help The Salvation Army continue Doing the Most Good in the Austin Area by planning and/or sponsoring an event to raise funds to help families, children and individuals in crisis. We have some fundraising ideas below along with guidelines to provide clarity so we are all clear on our roles and responsibilities.
Two Types of Third-Party Fundraising Programs
- Event Fundraising: A group or individual can host an event or sponsor an activity and designate the Austin Area Command as the beneficiary. For example: An organization hosts a golf outing and gives The Salvation Army Austin a check for the net profits.
- Piggy-back Fundraising: You can “piggy back” on an existing event and turn it into a fundraiser. For example: A company has an annual party and asks their employees to bring donations of new clothing or toys for The Salvation Army or a city has an annual marathon and the sponsor offers registrants the opportunity to get pledges for The Salvation Army. The fundraiser then contacts The Salvation Army about the clothing, toys or check.
