Our first in-person fundraiser since 2019 was a lovely night spent with old friends, new friends, and a Caring Community whose generosity and kindness knows no bounds. Thanks to our incredible donors, our Sip & Mix Spring Fundraiser raised over $36,000, leaving our goal of $25,000 in the dust! Wow!

If you missed out on the event or if you attended but haven’t donated yet, it’s not too late to help support vulnerable homeless families in our King County communities. Click the button below to make your donation to Attain’s Spring Fundraiser today!

Tips for outreach: 

— Consider how to best to contact the people on your invite list: email, letter, phone. 

— Communicate that this is a fundraiser with a suggestion donation of at least $100. If that’s too big a stretch, please contribute toward my group goal for all my guests of $1,000. 

— Share why you give. As simple as: I give because______(I believe the children in every family deserve a home).  

— Follow-up!  Set a reminder to check back with those you have invited closer to April 28. Your reminder really does inspire others to give!
