If you are interested in raising funds on behalf of the Crisis Center, please contact Chris at (708) 429-7255 x118.

Some Ideas…

-  Collect pledges for an event that you are participating in, such as a run/walk, marathon, etc. (check out one donor’s quest to raise funds for domestic violence prevention)

-  Give a percentage of your business proceeds for a day (i.e. Dine to Donate, percentage of orders for particular items, etc.)

-  Host an event.  Groups in the past and present have done cut-a-thons, motorcycle rides, art shows, etc.  Be creative.

-  Collect donations for a discount at your business (i.e. collect baby care items for 10% off or gently used clothing for a free item).
