Build the Castle

In May, SandCastles has a month-long fundraising mission where staff, volunteers, participants, and community supporters can come together to achieve a fundraising goal. In 2018, we EXCEEDED our goal of $20,000 and had more than 29 third-party events throughout the community! 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
  • Attending a fundraiser in your community for SandCastles
  • Hosting a fundraiser in your community: any size, any style, ANY fundraiser!

Fundraising Ideas:

  • 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…
