How to Participate

  • Fundraise with a Team - Fundraising on a team means that along with your own donation, you and a team of your friends help collect donations from each of your separate networks.

Teams can be formed with any group of people, your: friends, coworkers, church group, block club, sports team, Boy or Girl Scout Troop, sorority, or fraternity. The possibilities are endless! Just recruit people who will be willing to reach out to their own personal networks to help collect donations for your team.
  • Fundraise Solo - Fundraising solo means that along with your own donation, you help collect donations from your friends and family to support Sarah's Circle.
