WHY SHOULD I FUNDRAISE FOR SANTA SKIVVIES RUN?
Not only is Santa Skivvies Run a very fun event, it’s also a major fundraiser of San Francisco AIDS Foundation. San Francisco AIDS Foundation works to end the HIV epidemic in the city where it began, and eventually everywhere. Established in 1982, our mission is the radical reduction of new infections in San Francisco because we refuse to accept HIV as inevitable. Through education, advocacy and direct services for prevention and care, we are confronting HIV in communities most vulnerable to the disease. The money raised by participants will enable San Francisco AIDS Foundation to continue these efforts. You can learn more about San Francisco AIDS Foundation by visiting our website at sfaf.org.
IS IT EASY TO FUNDRAISE?
Yes! Once you start asking around, you’ll be surprised by the generosity of the people you know. When you register, we’llset you up with your own personal fundraising page, provide you access to a variety of online fundraising tools; and coach you along the way, providing you with fundraising advice, tips, and tricks. You’ll raise more than you thought you could in no time.
HOW WILL I RAISE FUNDS IN ORDER TO REACH MY GOAL?
Once your friends and family find out about your commitment to the cause, you’ll find that fundraising is easier than you think. But, it doesn’t happen unless you ask people for their support. If you have a personal story or connection to the cause or organization, make sure to share it with the people you are asking.
