Host a Fundraiser

Introduce your circle to Sarah’s Circle when you host a fundraiser. We provide the tools so your campaign can be successful. By creating a fundraising page and sharing it with your network, you can maximize your impact on ending homelessness for women. 

How to Get Started

Sarah’s Circle uses an online fundraising platform that allows you to create a personalized page for your fundraiser. Any online donations collected will count toward your personalized page and will be sent directly to Sarah’s Circle. To get started, simply send us an email at with your name, the name of your organization or business (if applicable), and information about the type of fundraiser you are interested in hosting and we will reach out to help set up the fundraising page for you.

Types of Fundraisers

There are many ways to set up your fundraiser to help women overcome homelessness. 

  • Collect donations for your birthday or other event instead of gifts
  • Fundraise in honor of a holiday like International Woman’s Day or Black History Month
  • Organize an event with your co-workers
  • Host an in-person event where attendees donate to your page to participate

No matter how you fundraise, simply share the URL to your personal fundraising page via email or social media so people can donate in only a few short clicks. Here’s an example of a page we created for one of our supporters who is hiking the Appalachian Trail in support of Sarah’s Circle:


We strongly recommend that fundraisers for Sarah’s Circle are set up through the fundraising platform provided and are not hosted on Facebook, GoFundMe, or other crowd-funding or third-party websites. These steps ensure that money raised is received by Sarah’s Circle and put to use as transparently and efficiently as possible.

If you would like to organize a fundraiser or have questions, please email us at Thank you!
