Hold a Fundraising Event

Individuals, organizations, and businesses (community organizers) frequently hold fundraising events to benefit YOTO. These are called “Third Party Fundraisers” because YOTO staff does not participate in the planning or coordination of the event or cover costs that may be associated with running the fundraiser.

We supply community organizers with agency information, help with promotion through our newsletter and website, and on occasion provide a mutually agreed upon number of volunteers to assist during the event.

Some examples of successful third party events include:

  • Themed Events: car shows, bike races, walks/runs, sporting tournaments, with admission fees to benefit YOTO
  • Silent Auctions at organized events
  • Mini Mall Drives: specific food and personal hygiene items, as per our suggested list
  • Support for YOTO campaigns, such as Back-to-School donation drive, Spread the Warmth holiday drive, etc.

Please call the office at (520) 293-1136 or fill out our online form if you are planning an event to benefit YOTO students so that we can provide you with support!
