Are you passionate about supporting the community but not sure how to help?

Focus: HOPE

Become an ambassador for Focus: HOPE by hosting your own virtual fundraiser. Get your friends, families, and coworkers involved in supporting our community – what a great way to make a difference during this time! Create a donation page here and invite whoever you’d like.

Ideas to get you started:

  • Celebrate a birthday, holiday, or other occasion you’d normally celebrate in person by hosting a fundraiser
  • Put together a virtual race or walk, where participants can raise support or walk · through their neighborhoods (or even on the treadmill) – all for our neighbors
  • Are you a musician? Host a live-streamed concert to raise support for your community
  • An e-sports or online game tournament fundraiser would be fun for all involved, and would make a big difference to our community
