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. Just check out this video, or look below at all the different fundraising ideas.

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.
