Become a Fundraiser

Become a fundraiser!

The best way to help is to set up a fundraiser for our cause.

Donating is great, but if you become a fundraiser and encourage the people you know to donate, then we can really make a difference in the lives of victims and survivors of domestic violence.

Follow this step-by-step guide to get started:

Purple Purse Set up your fundraising page

  • Visit
  • Click “Login” in the upper right hand corner. Sign up for a Crowdrise account if you do not already have one.
  • Click the purple “Fundraise for This Community Partner” button. Click “Join Team.”
  • Now you have your own fundraising page that you can share with your community of family, friends, and colleagues to help us make an even bigger impact!

Purple Purse Enhance your fundraising page

  • While logged in, click the gray “Edit Fundraiser” tab at the top of the page.
  • Delete the RICADV’s default text, and add some descriptive text or a story about why you support the RICADV and why you are asking others to get involved.
  • Upload a photo of yourself so people know they are donating to the right page.
  • If you want, set a realistic fundraising goal to motivate your supporter network. You can edit this goal at any time.
  • Add photos and videos that illustrate why this cause means so much to you. The more compelling your page, the more likely people will read about your cause and make a donation.

Purple Purse Share your fundraising page starting October 2 at 12 PM (& continue to share throughout October!)
