Do-it-yourself fundraising

One of the easiest and most impactful ways to welcome refugees to your community is to pull together your networks and social groups through a fundraiser. We can help by providing IRC materials, videos, and even a speaker! Ready to get started? Fill out this form and we'll get back to you. 

We encourage you to use the IRC in Northern California Crowdrise page, which allows you to fundraise directly for local resettlement by harnessing your passion, whatever it may be. If you prefer not to use our Crowdrise page, please let us know so we can work with you on other options to ensure all gifts are tax-deductible and will support local resettlement. 

Past examples of fundraisers organized by individuals or groups include:

  • Organize a yoga class
  • Learn to cook something new and invite friends to dinner
  • Give instead of get for your birthday
  • Put on a play
  • Host a bowling
  • Run a marathon
