Start Your Campaign

How It Works

Step 1: Commit to helping end hunger.

Decide what you’re going to do to fundraise. Pick a campaign name. Choose a photo. Set a goal.

And just like that, you’ll be ready to start raising money in minutes.

Step 2: Tell everyone you know.

To get things going, be the first to make a donation. Then, invite all of your family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues to contribute. The more people you tell, the faster you’ll reach your goal.

We have a variety of resources to help your fundraiser succeed!

Step 3. Help change lives.

When you fundraise, you are making a difference. Because of you, people in San Diego County won’t have to go to bed hungry, and good food won’t end up in landfills. That’s amazing! Be sure to thank your donors for joining the movement too!

Fundraising Opportunities Are Endless!

Here are some ideas for inspiration:

Celebrate! Instead of gifts, ask for a donation. Fundraise for your birthday, wedding, anniversary, or baby shower.

Honor – Instead of flowers, honor a loved one by asking for donations. Their donation will help change lives.

Chalk Your Block – Ask for donations and what the donor would like you to chalk. For every donation made, you will chalk your block!

Host an Event – Invite family, friends, and people in your community to help raise money for a good cause.

Run a Marathon – Sign up to run a marathon and collect donations to help end hunger.

Get Creative – Pledge to do something crazy. Grow a mustache. Polar plunge. Shave your head. The possibilities are endless! Have fun knowing you are making a difference in the lives of those facing hunger.
