Hold a fundraiser to benefit RECLAIM
Are you looking to support RECLAIM by holding a fundraising drive or event? Put your talent to work to raise funds and raise awareness with your friends, family, neighbors, customers, and colleagues. We welcome independent fundraising initiatives from individuals, clubs and organizations, businesses, and more!
RECLAIM's development team can provide advice and assistance to hold a successful fundraiser. If you'd like to request a guest speaker, volunteer help, or just check in beforehand, get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
