How do you start a fundraiser for a specific charity?

I am from a low-income family and cannot donate anything significant myself, but I would like to hold a fundraiser to support St Jude Research Hospital in my area if possible. Have any of you done this before? How do I go about getting started?

  • you rockContact St. Jude and let them know what you would like to do and see if they can send you a starter kit for putting together one of their fundraiser. Kudos for wanting to help out and looking for a way to do it!

  • Contact a rep at the hospital. They should be able to tell you exactly how, plus it will make it all legal.
