Fundraising

We've got you, every step of the way!

When you register for AIDS/LifeCycle, you'll be assigned a participant rep who will be there to assist you in your fundraising efforts! We have tools and resources to make fundraising, well, FUN!

Getting Started with Fundraising

Follow these first steps to set up your campaign and begin fundraising:

  • Create your page. Your Participant Center is your fundraising base where you’ll customize your homepage, share your story, send emails, and access fundraising tools. Log in with the username and password from your Welcome Email.
  • Raise the bar. We recommend setting your goal above $3,000, because it’s easier to meet the minimum when you shoot for higher! Whether you set it at $5,000, $10,000, or more, our team of Participant Reps will be there every step of the way, helping you earn your ticket to ride! You got this!
  • Lead the pack. Make a self-donation to show how invested you are, then ask others to match it. This proven method will help get the ball rolling! And remember - your registration fee is a donation too! Ask your supporters to match it if a self-donation isn’t in your budget!
  • Make your first ask, loud and clear! Post on social media, email your BFF, call your mom, text your distant cousin—tell the world what you’re trying to accomplish. People will be blown away by what you’re about to do, so let’s give them the opportunity to support your efforts!
  • Pro-tip: Download our app! The app allows you to send fundraising emails and thank you messages to your donors. You'll also have access to great discounts with our Community Partners. Available on both iPhone and Android, search for “AIDS/LifeCycle” in the app store.

Don't forget to share with your donors how their donations will be used! Click here to view facts and figures about how our benefitting agencies, San Francisco AIDS Foundation and the Los Angeles LGBT Center, put your fundraising dollars to work.
