Grassroots Fundraising

There are many small ways that you can make a big impact for United Friends! Every effort and contribution from each UFC community member helps us achieve our mission of serving the current and former foster youth of LA County. Check out some of the fun ways you can make a difference below!

Launch a Facebook birthday fundraiser to benefit UFC!

Did you know that you can use your birthday as a moment to give back to foster youth in need? Create a Facebook birthday fundraiser in support of United Friends, and donations from your friends and family will directly benefit our youth!

Just follow these 3 easy steps to set up your fundraiser!

  1. Go to www.facebook.com/fund/unitedfriendsla
  2. Follow the prompts to set a goal, deadline, and tell your friends and family why you chose to support UFC.
  3. Click create and share with your network!

That’s it! 100% of the donations you collect on Facebook will go directly to UFC and our youth.

Use our UFC donation sticker in your Instagram Stories!

Raising funds for our youth is as simple as adding a sticker to your Instagram Story! The next time you post an Instagram Story or go on Instagram Live, consider adding a donation sticker in support of United Friends. You’ll be able to track donations raised through your fundraiser and watch your impact in real time. Give your fundraiser a title, customize your color, and you’re good to go!
