Personal Fundraisers

Download Forms & Materials

Gather friends, family and co-workers for a fun event in support of the Epilepsy Foundation of NJ. Popular fundraisers in the past have included concerts, bar or restaurant outing, bake sales, etc. We will gladly provide any information or promotional materials you may need for a successful event. Don’t forget to share your success and photos from the event with us and we’ll include you in our monthly e-zines!

In 2012, .96 cents of every dollar donated to the Epilepsy Foundation of NJ went directly to programs and services. Feel confident in donating the money you worked so hard to raise, we will spend it wisely to support individuals in NJ with special needs and their families.

Use the following ideas to start planning your own event:

Throw a Party
Dinner/Dessert Party: Invite friends and family over for dinner/dessert and ask them to make a donation equal to what they would have paid for a dinner/dessert at a local restaurant. Local restaurants and bakeries may be willing to donate items for your event.
Theme Party: Celebrate a birthday, anniversary or any holiday with a theme party and ask everyone who attends to make a donation.

Coordinate a Sporting Event or Tournament
Tennis, Golf, bowl-a thons, dance-a-thons and other sports can all be set up as events or tournaments with all proceeds from entry fees, refreshments and silent auctions going to EFNJ.

Auction
Collect donated items from local businesses and host a live or silent auction.

Car Wash
Hold a car wash in the parking lot of a local supermarket or large shopping center with all funds raised directed toward EFNJ. Please be sure to get prior approval from an establishment prior to hosting or advertising a car wash.

Yard Sale
Ask your friends and family to donate items to your yard sale. Since all proceeds from the sale would be benefitting EFNJ, you will be surprised by how generous people can be. You can even sell refreshments at the event to raise additional money.

Canning/Money Collection
Make arrangements with a high traffic store such as the Home Depot, Lowes or grocery store to stand in front of the establishment and collect money for EFNJ.
