| What's your legacy? What impact do you want to make on the world? With The For a Day Foundation, the sky is the limit! From tiara drives to fund raising and directing a chapter to sitting on the Board of Directors, your options are limitless.
- Partner with FADF. Own a business? Volunteer with another organization? Consider partnering with FADF to promote similar causes, involve employees/volunteers, or make FADF the official charity.
- Organize a fund-raiser or friend-raiser. Who doesn't like to party? Host a party at your home and introduce guests to The For a Day Foundation. Use the opportunity to present the need for donations and ask friends to join you in supporting or ask for support in other ways. Setting up a table at a local festival, conference, or community event is a great way to promote the organization and raise money by selling raffle tickets, selling a product, or hosting an auction.
- Donate talents and resources. Are you well-connected in your community? Do you know of a foundation or corporation that supports similar causes? Do you like book-keeping, public relations or event-planning? Are you relentless at asking for sponsorship? If you're not sure if your resources are useful, ask us! Also, check with your employer for which causes the company supports. Most companies have a employee-matching program where they match the donations of their employees. Your donation could have a double impact!
- Board of Directors. The national office is developing a Board of Directors and an Advisory Board to assist in directing the growth and expansion. Individuals do not need to be in a specific area to serve as a Board member or in an advisory position.
- Products or services. The opportunity for cause-related marketing is enormous. Nearly anything can be sold to benefit a non-profit. Most consumers are drawn to social responsibility and want to know they can help others while they shop.
