fundraisingFundraising allows MSFC chapters to host events, increase awareness, and send more students to our annual Conference on Family Planning! Developing creative ways to raise money can be fun and increase the impact of your work.

Download our Fundraising Guide for ideas about how to successfully raise money!  Interested in fundraising for the conference, check out our Conference Fundraising Toolkit- 2017!

All funds will be held in your chapter’s trust account. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Have a Letter Writing Campaign

Ask family, friends, professors, and alumni for gifts.  Engage all chapter members to ensure that you reach out to as many people as possible. For MSFC letterhead, remittance envelops, and advice email us at [email protected]. Here is a Sample Solicitation Letter to help you get started!

Get In-Kind Donations from Local Businesses

In-kind donations refer to non-cash gifts to your organization (food, materials, lecturers, etc.). In-kind donations are a great way to engage your local community in MSFC activities while also securing free or discounted goods for chapter events. Many local and chain delis, bakeries, grocery stores, and restaurants will be happy to support your work by providing food for your next event.  Remember to bring a solicitation letter with you when you make these asks.

Here is a template to get you started: In-Kind Letter Template.
