In May 2018, SandCastles will have a month-long fundraising mission where staff, volunteers, participants, and community supporters will come together to achieve a fundraising goal of $20,000. SandCastles does not charge families for our services and must rely on donations, fundraisers, and grants to run programs.
How can you help?
You can help Build the Castle by:
- Donating to SandCastles Grief Support Program or collecting donations from friends and family
- Hosting a fundraiser in your community: any size, any style, ANY fundraiser!
- Attending a fundraiser in your community for SandCastles
- Restaurant nights
- Home & online catalog sales
- Dinner parties
- Bake sales
- “Jeans Friday” at the office
- And so many more – if you can imagine it, it can be a fundraiser!
If you are part of a community group, consider coordinating with your group to host a fundraiser together: youth groups, high school and university service organizations, university major clubs, professional associations…
