Fundraising Ideas

IFOPA_MATCH_TeamCureFOPLogo.pngHere is a quick list of ideas to help you brainstorm ways you can fundraise and have your efforts matched! Don’t forget… every $500 you raise (up to $2,000) will be matched dollar for dollar.

Simply turn your existing hobbies and passions – anything from running to baking to fashion to golfing - into a fundraising opportunity. We’ll be here every step of the way to help you as you mobilize your friends, family and coworkers to bring your ideas to life.

No matter your age or what type of fundraiser you select, Team #cureFOP allows anyone to create a webpage for their personal fundraising campaign or event. You can share information about you, the person with FOP who inspires you to fundraise, and post photos or videos.
