Host a Virtual Fundraiser

Virtual Fundraisers

Hosting a virtual fundraiser is the most impactful way to support EPFH and engage your friends, family & coworkers! Instead of collecting cans and boxes of food, you’ll build a customizable, online fundraising page for an easy, effective way to raise money with your group. You can start a friendly competition with coworkers, other departments in your company, rival schools, or with your family! EPFH can provide food for seven complete meals for what it would cost you to purchase one can of food.

How to Get Started:

  • Simply visit our virtual fundraising site and click the orange “Start Fundraising” button. You’ll then follow the prompts to name your fundraiser, add a customized photo and description.
  • Set a goal and start sharing your personalized link!
