Make your own fundraiser for Susie’s Place

You can host a fundraiser for Susie’s Place and help a child and family in crisis get the support they need.

Here are ways people around central Indiana have raised money for Susie’s Place:

  • Ask for donations instead of gifts for your birthday or wedding.
  • Hold a concert.
  • Cunningham Restaurant Group frequently holds “Dine and Donate” events. A portion of a day’s proceeds goes directly to Susie’s Place. It’s good for business and good for kids.
  • Local police departments go a month without shaving to raise awareness and funds.
  • For the bold, auction off the rights for someone to do something to you — like a dunking booth, shave, or pie to the face.
  • For the bolder, do something safe and offbeat. Think buckets of ice water or jumping into a lake.

And of course, these common ideas are always great ways to raise awareness and funds:

  • Bake sales
  • Yard and garage sales
  • Quilt raffles
  • Car shows
  • Fish fries and food stands
  • Holding a supply or snack drive

Whatever your plan, here’s how to get started:

  1. Decide what you’re going to do, when, and for how much. If you’re not sure how much to raise, don’t worry. Even $100 donations add up and go far.
  2. Tell your friends. Share it with your friends, family, and coworkers. Be specific in asking what you need them to do.
  3. When you’re done, get in touch, mail it, donate it online, or drop by one of our three locations. We’ll be forever thankful for your work.
