Step 1

Select Your Nonprofit

What are your own personal values? Do you care about Cancer or about Children's Education, do you care about Fighting corruption or about Building Communities? Do you care about a particular organization?

Choose any one of RUF's Community Partners or select based on your values: Civic Engagement, Education, Environment, Healthcare, and/or Heritage. Or, fundraise for RUF and allow us to support critical projects that we know will make the most impact

Step 2

Start Your Fundraiser

Starting your fundraiser is easy, you can do so by fundraising on Facebook, or by setting up a personalized donation page on our website (soon to be available). 

Are you ready?

Start Your Campaign


Step 3

Invite Your Friends to Give

Once your campaign is set up, tell everyone about it. The more people you tell, the quicker you’ll reach your goal. Then sit back and watch the donations roll in.

Step 4

Register Your Fundraiser

Registering your fundraiser allows us to know where to direct the money. Don't worry, even if you forget about this step, we will make sure all money makes it to a worthwhile project.

Register your fundraiser



See exactly where your money goes

After your campaign is over, we’ll send 100% of what you raise directly to the field. We’ll keep track of where it goes and how it's spent. Then, we’ll report periodically back to you with information about the actual people your money helps.


You can do anything to raise money.
