Our Secret Tool? Our Amazing Supporters! WE NEED YOU!

April 23, 2020

Today is #GivingTuesdayNow, a day where the country is coming together to support charities providing assistance during COVID-19 and we need your help!

Please consider starting a peer to peer fundraising campaign today to help us reach our goal. We currently have a very long waiting list of families needing assistance with groceries and supplies, families dealing with cystic fibrosis, which makes them especially vulnerable to this illness. Our CF members and their families have been in quarantine longer than most of America due to the grave effects this virus can have on their already damaged lungs.

Create a campaign by following these steps and win our limited edition custom enamel pin set. Raise $100 and receive 1 pin, raise $200 to receive both

  1. Please go to FUNRAISE.ORG to view our COVID 19 Relief Fund Campaign Page.
  2. Once there, click the “Fundraise” button in the upper right hand side of the page
  3. Choose the option “Fundraise on my own” or “Start a Team” (note: The team setting will require you to create a group effort where each of your team members also become fundraisers. The “fundraise on my own” option makes you the only fundraiser that can request donations from your friends and family)
  4. Create your individual fundraising page by uploading an image of either yourself of one of our COVID 19 Grant Recipients or even a special picture of our Founder, Claire Wineland that you can all of this in the tab “COVID-19 Toolkit” at the top of the Funraise page or HERE
  5. Write a few sentences about why you are fundraising for Claire’s Place Foundation. There are a few mission guidelines to keep in mind when talking about our organization and the vulnerable community we serve. You can find all of that information in the section below titled “Mission, Vision and Values”.
  6. Set a goal! We are giving out our custom, limited edition enamel pins pictured above with Claire Wineland’s image and one of her most famous quotes “Live a Life you are Proud of” as a gift to any of our fabulous fundraisers that reach their goals. (*Minimum goal is $100 and you will earn 1 pin, $200 for 2 pins)
  7. SHARE this fundraiser far and wide! We have been blessed by an enthusiastic group of supporters, especially those who followed our late founder Claire Wineland on many of her social channels. Now is the time to step up and be heard. Let’s get our community some much needed support during this pandemic. Claire would be so proud of all of you!
