Fundraising Tips

Thank you for participating and supporting Clearbrook! Did you know that if Clearbrook relied solely on state funding, we would operate at a $16,000 daily deficit? That's over $6 million a year! Funds raised through this event help us cover that cost and provide the very best for our clients. THANK YOU!

Getting Started

  • Login to your participant center and customize your fundraising page. Tell people your story and why you support Clearbrook! Change your Fundraising Page title and upload a photo of your connection to Clearbrook. Need help customizing? Download one of the guides or video resources below.
  • Share your personal fundraising or team page with your family, friends and coworkers. Encourage them to join you by participating in the walk/run, or by making a donation.
  • Ask, ask, and ask again! Many people want to support you, but see your email or post when they are in line at the grocery store...and then forget! Commit to sending at least 3 reminders, especially in the final days before the event.
  • Host an event with your family or friends to raise funds. Anything can be made into a fundraising event! Getting together with family and friends at a backyard barbecue? Ask them to donate online or bring their checkbooks!
  • Raise money at work. See if your company will host a jeans day and allow staff to wear jeans for a day if they make a $5 donation. Buy bagels and donuts. Leave them in the breakroom with a donation box. Host a bake sale in the lobby of your office. Host a happy hour after work at a local restaurant. Ask them to donate a percentage of the proceeds to Clearbrook. The possibilities are endless!
  • Ask us if you need more ideas. We are here to help!  You can reach us at step@clearbrook.org
