Host a Special Event

Holding a Fundraising Event to Benefit Betty Griffin Center

There are a lot of ways you can help raising funds to support victims of domestic and sexual violence in our community.

Donation Collection:

It’s a great way to get rid of old clothes and household items. Instead of a yard sale or garage sale, donate items to the thrift shoppes to help raise funds for survivors of domestic and sexual abuse.

‘Wish List’ Drive:

Have family, friends, coworkers, and/or neighbors donate items from our wish list. These items are a constant need at the shelter throughout the year.

Host A House Party:

Plan and sell tickets to a fundraiser to benefit the Betty Griffin Center. Set a fundraising goal and invite people who have an interest in ending intimate partner violence and want to learn more about the Betty Griffin Center. Request a BGC Representative to come speak at your event! (Note: Speakers considered for audiences of at least 20 or more.)

Hold A Bake Sale:

Show off your baking skills to benefit the Betty Griffin Center.

Host A Board Game Tournament:

Teams will play against each other so encourage participants to create a team name and theme. Charge each team an entry fee or an item from our wish list and donate to help victims of domestic and sexual abuse.

Hold A Spaghetti Dinner:

Invite all your friends to a fundraising dinner (or Pancake Breakfast or Ice Cream Social). Charge a $5 entry fee or encourage attendees to donate directly to the Betty Griffin Center.

Wear Jeans Day:

For a $5 donation to the Betty Griffin Center, let employees wear jeans or casual clothes for a day.

Host A Movie Night:

Host a movie night at your house, church or center. Sell baked goods, snacks or popcorn to raise funds for victims of domestic and sexual abuse.
