Give OUT Day Fundraiser

Are you interested in helping raise money for TransPonder?

This Pride month, you can be a Give OUT Day Fundraiser!

Each year, the Horizons Foundation hosts a peer-to-peer fundraising event for the month of June. All nonprofits that serve the LGBTQ+ community are invited to participate and prize money is awarded by the foundation to organizations for Paris things throughout the month, such as getting the most donations or unique donors during a set period of time, which means that TransPonder has the chance to win thousands of extra dollars during the event.

Peer-to-peer fundraising is the number one most successful way to raise money for a cause. It widens the circle of people learning about the cause and research shows that people are 3 times more likely to donate money when asked by a friend or family member. While TransPonder may be near and dear to your heart, there may be many people within your social circle who have never heard of us.

We are asking our community to take on being a Fundraiser this June! Templates and instructions are provided (as is email support) so setting up your page is a breeze. We hope you will consider helping us raise money to support all the wonderful programs and service we offer!
