HOST A THIRD-PARTY FUNDRAISER

Facebook Fundraising

You can use Facebook's Fundraising Tools to raise funds and awareness of Primavera on your birthday, or set up a dedicated page to rally around a specific fundraising goal. Because we use their payment platform to process donations on Facebook, supporters pay no fee. So, 100% of the donations go directly to the organization.

  • Starting is easy. - Facebook will help you get started and give you tips to reach your goal.
  • Share with friends. - Connect friends to your cause and gain supporters across Facebook.
  • Get donations. - People can donate to your fundraiser in just a few clicks without leaving Facebook.

 

Benefit Events

Raise funds for Primavera's programs and services! Whether you are an individual, a business owner, or member of a community group, we’d love to discuss ways you can help support our organization. Hosting a community event is a great way for you (as a host) to raise awareness about Primavera while raising funds. Plus, you are letting the community know that you support the important work that we do. Example benefit events:

  • a percentage of sales by stores or restaurants / a percentage of ticket sales
  • run/walk events / golf tournaments / concerts
  • in lieu of gifts (for weddings, birthdays, funerals, etc.)

 

Donation Drives

This is an easy and fun way to get a whole group involved. Help collect essential items for Primavera within your workplace, school, place of worship, and/or neighborhood. Example donation drives:

  • hundreds of labelless, empty pill bottles for our drop-in center participants (we fill about 700 of them on a weekly basis with essential hygiene items like shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, etc.)
  • food for our drop-in center and shelter participants
  • backpacks and school supplies for children in our Las Abuelitas Family Housing and Community Center after school program

If you are interested in hosting a community benefit event or a donation drive for Primavera, contact our Volunteer Coordinator at (520) 308-3110 or volunteers@primavera.org.

Meet Tajin

When our grants coordinator’s son turned seven years old this year in April, and was planning his superhero birthday party, he and his mom talked about how they needed to act at the party if they were going to be superheroes.

He told her, “Superheroes help people!” They talked about what “helping” means.

When he invited his friends to his party, in lieu of his own gifts, he asked them to bring food and their gently used toys so he could donate it all to Primavera.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Meet David Wohl & His Friend Dan Mendelson

After swimming 1,500 meters, bicycling 1,900 feet, and running 10 kilometers in three hours and 27 minutes, our Primavera Board Treasurer, David Wohl, and his friend Dan Mendelson won second place in their division of the “Tri-ing for Shelter” Patagonia Lake Triatholon fundraiser.

With the help of over 20 of their closest friends, they raised over $3,600 for our Men’s Shelter.
