Fundraise

MAKE AN IMPACT

Your skills, talents, and ideas are a force for change. From birthday parties to polar dips, your fundraising campaign can stop the violence.

THE PROBLEM? VIOLENCE. Today, it is the most urgent threat for millions of our world's poorest neighbours. For them, violence is their most urgent concern. Not food. Not water. Violence. They are not safe. When they call for help, no one answers. Learn more IJM.ca/The-Problem

YOU ARE THE SOLUTION. Your campaigns transform public justice systems. When the poor call for help, your campaign makes sure someone answers. You help rescue victims, bring criminals to justice, restore survivors and strengthen justice systems. Learn more IJM.ca/Our-Solution

IDEAS

It's About You

What do you like to do? Are you crafty? Can you bake? Shave your head? Swim? Run? Your interests and talents are a fundraiser waiting to happen. Great idea: Justache

Go Online

Not sure how to launch your fundraiser? Get social. Invite your friends to join you! Great idea: #theForce4Justice

A Little Friendly Competition

A little competition pushes everyone to exceed their own expectations. Pie-eating competition anyone? Great idea: BBBC

Make a Sacrifice

You’re doing this because you care. Sometimes the best way to show it is to give up your own comfort. Whether it’s not sleeping, not eating or wearing dresses all frigid December, when you’re dedicated people respond. Great idea: Stand for Freedom

Still Stuck?
Everybody has a birthday

And we all like a good party. If you’re willing to give up your beautifully wrapped presents, a birthday is a great opportunity to raise funds for the causes you care about. Great idea: Download the birthday kit.

Answer the why question. Tell your supporters why their
money is needed and what IJM is doing.

Make the first donation to your fundraiser.
It shows people your commitment.

Personally ask your supporters to give and
always thank them when they do.

Everyone is busy; don’t be afraid to ask again for support.
Many times people just need a reminder.
