Empower orphans and vulnerable children around the world by creating your very own personalized fundraising page for ZOE.

Step 1: Make a Decision to Empower Orphans Today

It’s easy to rally your friends and family to join you in your goal to help orphans become self-reliant.

Step 2: Be Creative

Use your creativity to share your passion and get others involved.  You can give up your Christmas gifts, have a concert, host a dinner party, sell hot chocolate with your kids, run a race, jump into a freezing lake of water or shave your head.  It doesn’t matter because everyone loves a great cause!

 Step 3: Choose Your Goal and Set Up Your Page

Fundraise for Gifts that Help

ZOE’s Gifts that Help empower orphans with livestock, business grants, tools, seeds and other resources to transform their lives. You can browse our Gift Catalog to come up with a fun goal, such as 50 chickens or 3 cows. Then create your page and invite your family, friends, colleagues and anyone who might have a heart for orphans to join you!

Empower a Group of Orphans

Partner with your friends, family, colleagues, youth group or church members to become Hope Companions, and empower an entire working group of 60-100 orphans during their three-year journey to self-reliance.  When you reach your goal, a team of up to 15 members that you choose will be invited to visit the children that you personally helped empower!

Step 4: Gather Your Contacts and Share Your Page

Take some time to get together a list of everyone you know that may want to support your campaign. Share your page with others via e-mail and social media to generate excitement around your fundraiser.
