Host a Fundraiser

You can help us continue to offer our life-changing programs by organizing a fundraising event. This is also an opportunity to raise awareness about youth who are homeless, trafficked or at risk.

Your event can be any size or scale. Some popular options include:

  • Asking for donations instead of gifts for birthdays or weddings
  • Donating proceeds from garage sales or bake sales
  • Hosting food drives, fashion shows, walk-a-thons, golf tournaments—the options are endless!

If you are a student or teacher, see school fundraiser ideas below.

Host a school fundraiser

If you would like to make a real impact, engage your community and learn about the issues, consider having a Sleep Out event in your school. Sleep Out is an exciting initiative where students can have fun while raising money and awareness for youth at Covenant House.

Students from grades 6 to 12, supervised by a teacher, can spend time after school in their school gym, library, parking lot or other approved space to learn more about homeless youth and raise funds to help.

Please let us know about your plans to host a Sleep Out at your school.
