It’s #FundraisingFriday :: Please Donate $10 to Your Favorite Nonprofit!

January 1, 2013

9ac04faad50a11e2be5722000a1fac35_7#FundraisingFriday is a campaign meant to inspire individuals to commit to donating $10 to one of their favorite nonprofits every Friday. First tweeted in May 2012 from @NonprofitOrgs, the #FundraisingFriday hashtag has since then been tweeted and retweeted thousands of times.

If you are a nonprofit, using the #FundraisingFriday hashtag is a simple way to ask for your supporters to donate and hopefully you’ll be able to convert a few fans, followers, and friends into donors.

If you are a donor, please post the name and website of the nonprofit that you donated to below. I’ll do my best to help get the word out about your generosity and your favorite nonprofits. Also, each Friday through the end of 2013 I am going to donate $10 to one of my Favorite Nonprofits. I hope you join me – if not every Friday, then at least one Friday a month. 🙂

    I choose to donate to http://www.danhalpert.com, a website in which my son is raising funds for Bike and Build.

    Bike and Build organizes college students who bicycle across the country this summer, in his case from Providence to Seattle, educating people they meet along the way about the affordable housing crisis AND participating in home reconstruction projects.

    Every donation brings Dan closer to his goal and focuses more good towards solving this national problem.

    He is just past 1/2 way towards his goal to raise $4500 for Bike and Build.
    Each donation is greatly appreciated.

      Marc, cheers to your son! I am the Development Director for Habitat for Humanity of Pulaski County and we are Bike and Build award recipients. Thank you for choosing to give through Bike and Build and help others build dreams and change lives!

    I chose CharityVision international. CharityVision, a nonprofit 501c3 entity, empowers local physicians in developing countries to provide free surgery services to the poor of their own country. This organization is incredibly efficient and has created a sustainable model. They average about 30,000 procedures a year. The big kicker for me is that the average cost of saving someone’s sight is only $25! That’s impressive. Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness and a relatively simple, and proven surgery can restore vision. Imagine going without your sight. Now think about that in an impoverished area. Very scary, huh.

    Take a look at http://www.restoretheirvision,org.
    100% of public donations go directly to saving someone’s sight.

    Thanks for creating Fundraising Friday! It feels good to give.

    This is a great idea! It not only builds upon the generosity of others but it also educates people about alternative nonprofits to their favorites. Marc’s post inspired me to donate $10 to his son, Dan’s, fundraiser.

    I am donating to the Paul Carlson Partnership (http://www.paulcarlson.org), where both my workdays and my heart are. The Paul Carlson Partnership has done medical work in the D.R. Congo since 1968, and we are currently also doing a major agricultural microfinance program with the help of a grant from USAID. Congo is the poorest country on earth, and the Equateur province, in the northwest of the country, where we work, is one of the poorest provinces. We support 5 hospitals and 94 village clinics, and our microfinance program includes 2,800 individual farmers, 47 bicycle transporters, and 15 wholesalers. Every dollar given goes a long way in Congo, and every donor makes a real difference.

    As a Marine Mama, my vote and my donations go to Operation Gratitude (http://www.OperationGratitude.com ), the volunteer-based non-profit org that sends care packages to troops deployed overseas, to their children and families left behind, and to Wounded warriors recuperating in transition units. This great group has sent more than 760,000 care packages personally addressed to troops in harm’s way. Check out their facebook page too and all the amazing pictures: http://www.facebook.com/OperationGratitude

    Please consider Harboring Hearts (http://www.harboringhearts.org/) for this week’s #FundraisingFriday

    We have provides a haven for heart patients and their families while they are seeking medical care away from home. We offer solutions to financial and emotional problems often associated with a family member undergoing cardiac treatment. These problems include finding housing near a hospitalized patient, paying for the family to live in another city while a loved one undergoes treatment, providing emotional support to a heart patient, and accessing basic living needs.

    Please show your appreciation to our troops, the men and women who support us 24/7 so that we can enjoy our comfortable lives here at home. Operation Gratitude (http://www.OperationGratitude.com) sends care packages and letters to our troops.

  8. March 23, 2012 1:22 pm

    This is a wonderful idea, thank you for inspiring others to give. My donation will be going to Operation Gratitude. This amazing organization has sent 760,000 individually addressed packages to our troops over the past 9 years. Operation Gratitude also sends care packages to children whose parents are deploying and to Wounded Warriors. Please check them out at: (http://www.OperationGratitude.com)

    I was a casual supporter of various organizations but after the September 11th events, I felt that I had to do something more for the brave men and women than put a bumper sticker on my car that said “I Support Our Troops”. I was lucky to hear of a grass-roots organization that sends care packages to service members deployed overseas. Since then I have been an active supporter with my time and money of Operation Gratitude out of Van Nuys, California (http://www.operationgratitude.com) who helps provide a conduit for every American a way to help support our military, whether by helping to send care packages to active duty military overseas, wounded warrior packages for those here at home, or Battalion Buddies plush toys to their children who must endure in their absence until they come home. They are listed on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/OperationGratitude

  10. March 23, 2012 3:17 pm

    I donated to PRIDE Industries Foundation to support our first annual Team PRIDE! We’re a team of 20 people who are training to run a 5k or half marathon, and raising funds to create jobs for people with disabilities while we’re at it. My fundraising page is at http://www.razoo.com/story/Triciarunswithpride.

    PRIDE Industries Foundation (www.prideindustriesfoundation.org) supports job creation, employment preparation and placement, and employment support services for people with disabilities across the US. 100% of charitable gifts go to direct services, as our overhead costs are paid by earned income. We’re on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/prideindustriesfoundation.

    Thanks for creating #FundraisingFriday. What a great idea!

    I just made a donation to @stepuponsecond based in Santa Monica, CA. This is an extraordinary organization which strives to alleviate homelessness by focusing on providing aide, support and stabilization with regard to the issue of mental illness—which in addition to alcohol and substance abuse—- so often accompanies the reason(s) why one is homeless. Mental illness is an issue that is both stigmatized and misunderstood in our society…and yet, it is linked to so many other public policy issues (e.g. the prison and educational systems). In the end, working to improve mental health is smart public policy and will result in improving other areas of policy in our country. Thank you @stepuponsecond for providing support and care for individuals and families affected by mental illness—and improving communities through out the city of Los Angeles…by far the region in the nation which contains the largest concentration of homelessness.

    Operation Gratitude gets my money and my vote. 760,000 care packages sent and still going strong…they are committed to the needs of our deserving military community. EVERY American can get involved in showing our military they appreciate and support them with both donations and hands on involvement. Check out the website for letters FROM those who have received the packages and how you can write letters to be included in the care packages.

    I didn’t get this until Monday, so missed the Friday part, but I think this is a great idea! I work with a non-profit that is currently trying to figure out how to better engage our online followers in a way that leads to more giving. We believe they simply need to be reminded, so some kind of Fundraising Friday would be a great idea! I’ll be giving to http://www.RideAbility.org

They are the sole advocates for the preservation and maintenance of the greenery in the city – the gorgeous Public Garden, the Commonwealth Ave. Mall, and the Boston Common.

I work with a small nonprofit and this is a fantastic idea to promote. I will be supporting Edge of Seven, a nonprofit based in Denver with the mission to empower girls in developing countries. Awesome projects, awesome cause! http://www.edgeofseven.org

    This is a brilliant and expansive idea. The act of giving is a powerful energy in the evolution of humanity. CRY OF THE INNOCENT: The Voices That Can’t Speak is a precedent-setting documentary, unlike any, which will transform consciousness by conveying the truth from a soul perspective, speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves. This critical film needs your support. The time of awakening is NOW.

    I choose to donate to an organization that is very near and dear to me. I have worked for the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay for the last seven years; helping clients in crisis get back on their feet, and educating the community on suicide prevention. Now, I am charged with running a program known as Every Cent Counts.
    As part of the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay, Every Cent Counts has been developed to help individuals, that find themselves facing a hardship and unable to meet all of their needs, a way in which to reach out to the community for assistance. The people you see on the website are thoroughly screened to make sure their needs and stories are real. When their need is fully funded the clients will receive immediate notification, and will be provided with direct services, never cash in hand. We stand by our promise that every cent that is donated, will be used to help fulfill the needs of the clients. We will not be using donor money to fund this program.
    Our dream is to touch as many lives as possible through donations. We are helping real people, with real needs, in real time.

    I’ll be sending my donation to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I’ve been involved with the organization, through its Team in Training program, for just over a year, and I’ve met so many amazing, strong patients and survivors of blood cancers. I just found out that a friend’s son, who’s only a year and a half old, has been diagnosed with Leukemia and it gives me a whole new perspective to know that an innocent child (and many others like him) will have to fight this horrible disease and his family will have to stand by and watch. It’s devastating, but the LLS helps so many families like this one by offering support and education, financial assistance, and funding for research that will hopefully help us reach a cure for blood cancers – and all cancers.

    Even if you can’t donate $10, $5 or just $1 would make a huge difference. You can give at http://pages.teamintraining.org/epa/nj12/ndietrich or visit my Facebook page for more info on my work with the LLS – https://www.facebook.com/NoelSarahTNT

    Thanks so much for your support!

    My choice of Non-profit is http://www.khadarlis.org. Khadarlis for Sierra Leone is a non-profit 501(c) (3) humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities in rural villages in Sierra Leone. Founded in 2007 by Sierra Leonean native, Aisha Khadar Desince, of 99 Academy Ave in Providence Rhode Island 02908, who after visiting Sierra Leone in 2005 saw the devastation and struggle for survival that the citizens faced after the Civil War. Known to many as the “Blood Diamond” war, Ms. Desince vowed to dedicate her time, talent, and finances to assisting the citizens and rebuilding the country. Soon after, Ms. Desince and Darlis Johnson, co-founder, established Khadarlis for Sierra Leone. Today, Khadarlis is headquartered in Providence, Rhode Island and has successfully implemented and completed projects focusing on education, water and sanitation, health care, agriculture, solar electricity, and housing. For more information on Khadarlis, or to make a donation visit http://www.khadarlis.org or contact the organization directly at (401) 454-6916; Office hours are Tuesdays through Saturday 10 am to 7 pm, closed on Sundays and Monday’s donations are tax deductible per IRS rules and regulations.
    In the United States in the Elmhurst Area of Providence Rhode Island, Darlis and Aisha do as much as they can by providing 3 computers with Internet service for children to do home work and Adult to find job and use to secure employment. On weekends in the summer you can always find them in front of their office at 99 Academy Ave in Providence Rhode 02908, cooking out for the community free of charge out of their pocket.

    I donated to the San Jose Rockets a youth oriented Power Wheelchair Soccer team.

    http://www.sanjoserockets.com
    The San Jose Rockets are a development team of youth power (electric) wheelchair athletes, ages 10 to 21, and a member of Far West Wheelchair Athletic Association, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Power Soccer is the first competitive team sport designed and developed specifically for power wheelchair users and the only competitive sport available to this segment of our population. These participants include persons with quadriplegia, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, head trauma, stroke, spinal cord injury and other disabilities. It’s fast, it’s fun, and it’s challenging! Check out the You Tube video on the Rockets website to view this exciting sport in action.

    For people confined to power wheelchairs, Power Soccer can be the only place where they have an opportunity to participate in their communities and develop belief in themselves. Many live lives socially excluded from full participation in schools, or society. The sport of Power Soccer gives them continuing opportunities to think strategically, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Power Soccer athletes, and the community. Power Soccer also provides a gateway to empowerment, competence, and acceptance. With achievement comes confidence and courage; the courage to advocate for themselves in society, or to simply try something new.
    Power Soccer combines the skill of the wheelchair user with the speed and power of the chair itself, to participate in an extremely challenging game similar to soccer. The game is played in a gymnasium on a regulation basketball court. Two teams of four power wheelchair users attack, defend, and spin-kick a 13-inch soccer ball in an attempt to score goals.
    Most Power Soccer players have significant travel and equipment expenses to play the game they love so much. Many of the players are afraid of damaging their daily use power wheelchair while playing Power Soccer, so they purchase a second used chair just for playing soccer. For many of them their power wheelchair is their sole method of transporting themselves. The power wheelchair represents the feet that most of us walk on everyday and take for granted. Unfortunately, the athlete can’t simply roll down to the nearest park to play in the local soccer league. Some of the “local” Power Soccer teams are hundreds of miles away, and the regional tournaments often require flying thousands of miles to compete, so the athlete playing on a competitive team also incurs significant travel expenses to move themselves and their equipment to the next game, or tournament. Some families can afford these expenses, but others cannot, and we ask your donations to help defray some of these costs for those athletes who would love to play, but simply cannot afford the equipment, or the cost of travel.

    I chose Digital Literary Arts, Incorporated, http://www.dlastudios.org, an organization devoted to the educating of youth in the art of audio and digital production through education and hands-on opportunities. This organization was born from the tragic murder of a local artist who had begun to mentor and establish other young artists within his community. Upon his demise it became evident that with his death many other’s “dreams” died also due to their lack of technical knowledge, leadership, and concern from within the industry they longed to become a part of.

    I support The Great Shalom Broadcast Ministry 501(c)3 that attempts to encourage parents and educators who are dealing with children who are having trouble – “sick or learning disabled.” Unlike so many others, these are not responsible for their plight, and unlike other “ministries” we don’t give them reasons to give up and do nothing. I encourage, I bring in people from a wide variety of perspectives and disciplines. We are always upbeat and always encourage toward achievement. Working miracles on a shoestring.

    I’m President/CEO of Generational Community Services Inc. in Ash Fork, AZ. Ash Fork is a rural , surpressed village-not even large enough to be classified as a town.

Services are limited here and not many local jobs so people are struggling with day to day expenses. I have exausted my own funds to keep up with some of the expenses and I can’t do it any more either. We just want to be able to help others so if you can help it would be greatly appreciated!!

    Combining my love of running and of humanity.
    Back on My Feet Back on My Feet (BoMF) is a national nonprofit organization that is dedicated to creating independence and self-sufficiency within the homeless and other underserved populations by first engaging them in running as a means to build confidence, strength and self-esteem. The organization does not provide food nor shelter, but instead provides a community that embraces equality, respect, discipline, teamwork and leadership. Back on My Feet’s approach focuses on the very profound and innate desire for all of us – regardless of age, race, socio-economic status – to feel recognized, appreciated, valued and important. Through dedication and hard work, Members earn the opportunity to create a new road for themselves by advancing to the “Next Steps” phase of the program where they gain access to educational, job training and employment opportunities, as well as financial aid. In short, BoMF focuses on changing the direction of people’s lives by changing the way they see themselves.

    Even though I am the director of Lawndale Art Center in Houston, TX, I just gave a donation in support of one if its largest programs that offers exposure to almost 100 local artists each year. I feel it is good practice that if I am asking others to donate to our organization, then I must also contribute beyond the demands of my job.

Every artist needs the support of people and places where they live and work.

It serves 200,000 meals a year, and gives weekly groceries to those who are disenfranchised and without resources to commute and get help in South Dallas. In addition, it has 6 transitional residences for single men, women and families. Its concept of serving the broken and hungry is pretty simple: serve good hearty meals and put a roof over their heads with love. There is a huge emphasis in respecting those suffering from homelessness, citing treating someone with dignity goes far beyond the morsels served to them. And this small organization also has an emergency response team that it dispatches to disaster stricken areas (such as fire, flood, hurricane, etc) where they set up shop supplying emergency supplies and food to displaced communities. I was moved the first time I visited their humble headquarters and saw their little ambulance, with a “SoupMobile Emergency Response Team” written on it. And I did see that little ambulance quite few times as it zoomed under freeway passes to supply blankets and food during cold nights. I love love love——— this organization. 🙂

    Great idea, Heather! I’m making my donation to the WriterCoach Connection http://www.writercoachconnection.org, a program that brings volunteers into middle and high schools in the San Francisco East Bay to work one-on-one with students on their writing and critical thinking skills. Our vision is that students discover the power and richness of their own voices and learn to communicate their ideas with clarity, confidence, and pride. This will enable them to create academic success, meet personal challenges with self-assurance, expand their career options, and become greater contributors to their communities.

    Participating students, teachers and administrators love the program – students especially appreciate the help they receive and the relationship they form with their coaches. And the program is working: students’ grades are going up, more papers are getting turned in, English language learners are mastering comprehension and writing more quickly, and teachers are able to give out more complex writing assignments.

    I work for and donate to International Development Exchange http://www.IDEX.org . As we observe Indigenous Peoples Day, I am proud to support an organization like IDEX that trusts and empowers indigenous people. Unlike many grantmaking institutions in the international development field that support top-down “interventions”, IDEX identifies, evaluates and helps to grow grassroots solutions from community leaders in Asia, Africa and Latin America. All of the organizations that IDEX partners with fight poverty and social injustice with some combination of economic development, women’s empowerment and environmental protection.

    Based in San Francisco, IDEX allows donors to connect to visionary, but still small organizations whose groundbreaking work they would otherwise never know of. IDEX has over 25 years of experience in bridging the gap between well-meaning donors in the West and the most deserving locally led institutions in the global South.

    I may be a bit biased but the charity that I support is Good Return… I also work for them and consider myself incredibly fortunate to spend my 9-5 to make the world a better place.

    Good Return (http://www.goodreturn.org) is an Australian charity that provides microfinance and education to women and men living in poverty in the Asia Pacific, so they can start or expand their small business and improve their own lives. It focuses on empowerment — it’s not charity, it’s helping someone help themselves.

    I love the idea of #FundraisingFriday! This list alone is testament to all of the amazing organisations out there who do such great works. 🙂

  150. January 2, 2013 8:32 pm

    The donation has been to Building Better Lives -http://www.buildingbetterlives.org.au/shop/make-a-donation/
    Their mission is to resolving the issue of young people in nursing homes. With an estimated 3,300 people under 60 living in nursing homes in Australia it’s a wonderful cause.

  151. January 2, 2013 10:00 pm

    #FundraisingFriday sounds like a great concept. This Friday… think out of the box! Think about donating to Operation ASHA (http://www.opasha.org/donate-now/), an innovative model that is fighting tuberculosis amongst the disadvantaged worldwide.

    $10 will be used to provide treatment to a poor patient suffering from tuberculosis for about a month.

    To read a patient story: http://www.opasha.org/about-tuberculosis/faces-of-tuberculosis/

    P.S. Its been 3 years since I joined Operation ASHA and yet I can’t say that I am biased because I have truly been a part of the change they are creating.
