3 ways to fundraise for your favorite non profit

We are often asked, “What is the best way to help?” There are so many ways you can support a cause you’re passionate about: giving your time, your talents, and your treasure.

WITS is 100% privately funded, making programs free to schools and to teachers. Regardless of school or city budgets, partners can rely on WITS to provide consistent, equitable literacy support for Chicago Public Schools (CPS) students.

With WITS help, you can turn your every day into a meaningful day. Here some ideas.

Host an Event

Chicago summer is finally here! Grilling, swimming, and gathering with friends and family… what better opportunity to get everyone together for a good cause.

Host an outdoor family movie night and sell popcorn, slushies, and candy for a real movie experience.

Plan a backyard BBQ and host a neighborhood burger cook-off.

Teaching kids at a young age to give back is valuable. What better way than a good ole’ fashioned lemonade stand.

Special Occasion

Don’t need another toaster? Don’t want any birthday gifts? Events like weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and mitzvah projects are ideal occasions to fundraise! Instead of purchasing a physical gift… give the gift of reading.

Personal Challenge

Take on a new challenge by running a race, spinning for charity, or overcoming whatever personal obstacle you want to tackle. Can you and your kids commit to reading a certain number of books in a month to raise money for WITS? You can turn your passion into purpose.

There are endless opportunities to turn everyday events into opportunities to give back. Join Team WITS, and create your own fundraiser today!
