Host a Fundraising or Awareness Event

Many of our generous supporters have made a difference by organizing events in their community. These events allow individuals to raise funds in honor or in memory of their loved one, while raising awareness about the importance of organ and tissue donation and transplantation.

Check out a few examples of popular fundraising and awareness events you can do virtually!

In Honor/Memory Tribute Fundraisers:
If you intend for your FB Fundraiser contributions to be in honor or in memory of a loved one, please notify Amanda Tibok immediately following the creation of your fundraiser and provide the following information:

New for 5K Team Captains and Participants:

You can now create a Facebook Fundraiser from your 5K Participant Center to connect Facebook contributions directly to your personal 5K fundraising page to help you reach your fundraising goals! Your 5K fundraising goal and actual funds raised will display on your personal 5K fundraising page and your Facebook Fundraiser. Follow these easy steps to get started!

IMPORTANT - PLEASE NOTE:

  • NJ Sharing Network does not have control over Facebook fundraising pages. This means we cannot provide technical support or refunds if you use the Facebook fundraising tool; you will have to go through Facebook Support for any issues you experience.
  • Any person(s) that contribute to a FB Fundraiser will not receive an acknowledgement from NJ Sharing Network. 
  • It is up to the owner of the fundraiser to acknowledge FB Fundraiser contributors. NJ Sharing Network does not receive information specific to individual contributors.
