😕 What is Fund-a-Thon? Great question! Fund-a-Thon is a nationwide fundraising event coordinated by the National Network for Abortion Funds. Participants of Fund-a-Thon ask the people they know to help them reach a personally meaningful fundraising goal by making a donation to their local abortion fund. In Central and Southeast Texas, that’s us!

📅 When is Fund-a-Thon? Fund-a-Thon starts on Monday, March 25 and runs through May 31. That means you have until the end of May to create or join a team to fundraise OR give to a team to support Fund-a-Thon. This year, our goal is to raise $35,000!

🤔 Why should I participate? In 2023, Lilith Fund committed more than $1 million to clients for direct financial assistance for abortion and other reproductive healthcare services. As we delve into this year, we’re excited to strive toward new goals while continuing our foundational work of funding abortions for Texans traveling out of state. But we can’t do it without your support!

Fund-a-Thon is the perfect way to fundraise for Lilith Fund while also speaking with your loved ones about why supporting access to abortion is more important than ever.

👑 How do I join? Click the sign up button above and select ‘Become a Fundraiser.’ Decide if you are fundraising as an individual or as part of a team. If you are creating a team, register as a team captain. If you are joining a team, make sure you select the correct team you are joining. We are encouraging individuals to commit to fundraising at least $100 and for teams to commit to fundraising at least $500. You can sign up at ANY time between now and May 31 to fundraise.

📋 How can I prepare? Decide ahead of time if you plan to fundraise as an individual or as a team. If you’re doing a team, start thinking of who you would like to join you. Each team can have up to five members. Think of what you would like to say on your page or if you want a theme – you’ll want to make it catchy to encourage donations. Don’t forget a cool name for your team; past teams have included “Barely Scratching the Cervix,” “Abortions-R-Us,” and “Repro Justice League.”

🤝 How will Lilith Fund support me? Throughout Fund-a-Thon, Lilith Fund will be lifting up individuals and teams on social media to support your fundraising efforts. Additionally, we’ll be sending emails every other week with tips and sample messaging to encourage people to give to your page.

🤩 Will there be prizes? We are excited to have folks show up for Lilith Fund in this way and we want to reward you for your efforts. Individuals who raise $150+ will receive a Lilith Fund T-Shirt, sticker, and pin as a thank you gift from us. There will also be gift card prizes + social media shoutout for the following:

  • Top Individual Fundraiser
  • Top Fundraising Team
  • Most Donors for an Individual
  • Most Donors for a Team
  • Most Creative Individual or Team
  • Additionally, we’ll have weekly incentives to encourage your team and donors along the way!

💰 What’s the best way to fundraise? 
There are many ways to raise money throughout Fund-a-Thon. 

  • Start by making a list of all your friends and family who support you and figure out how much you want to ask for each person. Then start reaching out! Emails, direct messages, and text messages are all ways you can contact your network. We’ll be sending you sample messages to help you out!
  • Post on social media! And be strategic with your asks. Is your birthday coming up? Is there a special person you want to honor? Did an elected official say something dumb about abortion? Ask for donations!
  • Host a team event. Invite your closest friends for a game night, drinks, or a movie. Talk about Fund-a-Thon and ask for donations.
