A lemonade stand during BFF • High School Clubs • Mystery bartenders • Mustang car show
Baby Product Drive • A golf tournament • Wine and hors d’oeuvres with friends and neighbors • Movie theatre • Birthday Parties
Casual day at work • Trick or Suite • Toy drive • Scary-Oke • Off-road vehicle weekend
What is the common thread of all of these?
They are all third-party fundraisers or drives.
Caring, creative members of our NWA community organized events or drives to raise additional funds or to ask for donations of products or other goods for the Shelter or for our Thrift Store (which provides $1 out of $4 in gross revenue for our services).
In 2015, friends of the Shelter generated over $20,000 in new revenue by organizing events or drives on their own, with limited involvement (or no involvement) of Shelter staff, with proceeds benefiting the Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter.
Creative ideas and opportunities are endless.
If you, your team at work, a professional association or civic group, or your friends and family want to help victims of domestic violence break the cycle of abuse but you don’t know where to start, think about organizing a fundraising event or drive.
If you want to know when and where events or drives are taking place, go to our Current Community Activities page.
