GROW YOUR team endowment

The ways to grow your endowment are endless, so take advantage of all opportunities.  

First and foremost, we match all donations 2:1!  Tell your supporterers they can donate directly to your team through our website and it will be matched 2:1.  We also offer FREE fundraising items for teams and partners to grow their endowments. Proceeds raised and donated utilizing these items are also matched, but that match does vary.  The type and quantity of available items varies, but they are always provided at no cost. Always check our fundraising page for the latest items.  Quantities are limited.   For more information, see the fundraising FAQs below.
