Hold a Fundraiser

Ideas and inspiration on how to raise funds to help refugee families

Individuals from around the world have come up with creative ways to bring awareness to the refugee crisis and collect funds for Carry the Future, enabling us to hand-deliver even more aid to families in need. Carry the Future is an entirely volunteer-run organization, so we are able to apply your funds more directly toward purchasing and distributing aid. The sky’s the limit when it comes to unique ways you can raise funds and make a difference in the lives of refugees.

Here are just a few fundraisers individuals have done to raise funds for CTF:
