3 What is STAND UP? It is Your Commitment to Assist 12,000 Youth in Foster Care in New York City New Yorkers For Children s (NYFC) STAND UP fundraising program is a grassroots campaign for friends and supporters who want to host fundraising events or initiate fundraising campaigns to raise money in support of our mission and young people in foster care. The best fundraisers start with great ideas! This is your project, make it your own, be creative and have fun with it. In our STAND UP fundraising kit, you ll find some helpful hints and ideas for fundraisers, an application form, a donation form, a fact sheet, a fundraising results form, as well as additional materials. We ask that you start by submitting the application form so that we can properly track, report on, and recognize your fundraising efforts. Funds raised from these events and campaigns are used to support programs and services offered by NYFC to the nearly 12,000 youth in foster care in New York City. This includes the Youth Advisory Board, Guardian Scholars, and Back-to-School Package programs, as well as conferences, collaborative programs preparing youth in foster care for adulthood, and general day-to-day organizational needs. But your efforts also help us do something equally as important you help NYFC raise awareness of our mission, the work we are doing, and how others can get involved and support youth in foster care. This is a critical component of our success story and we cannot do this without you! What is grassroots fundraising? A grassroots event or campaign is a fundraising initiative to benefit New Yorkers For Children (NYFC) that is sponsored and organized by an individual (you!) or an organization or company (your place of employment, your kid s school, your community center, your place of worship, etc.). It is your event. You plan all the details with information provided by NYFC. You cover the expenses - this is your contribution to NYFC s efforts! You enlist the help of friends, family, and co-workers to organize, plan, and support your event. These events and campaigns are fun, they should be creative, informative, educational and inspirational! 3

4 Why host a STAND UP fundraiser/initiate a campaign? When you host an event or start a fundraising campaign, you contribute financially to NYFC by raising money for the 12,000 youth in foster care in New York City. You also spread the word about the work NYFC does. How much should I expect to raise? We suggest you set a fundraising goal based on your resources before you begin planning your event/campaign. Challenge yourself to reach a goal that is meaningful to you. Some examples of what your fundraising efforts could help NYFC provide to a young person in foster care: $250 = a new suit for job interviews $500 = 15 backpacks $1,000 = a year of tutoring for a Guardian Scholar $1,500 = laptop computer & printer $2,500 = moving 5 Guardian Scholars into their first apartments $5,000 = 250 alarm clocks getting students to class on time! $10,000 = holiday gifts to 1,000 children in foster care who may otherwise not get a gift during the holiday season $50,000 = wrap-around services to a student for their entire college career Will NYFC help me with my event/campaign? NYFC will provide you will vital information included in our STAND UP Fundraising Kit. If applicable, we may also be able to help you publicize your efforts by using our social media resources (Facebook, Twitter, and our website) in an effort to increase exposure and maximize your fundraising efforts! Because of staff time restrictions, we will not be able to assist you with organizing the event. Additionally, NYFC cannot provide reimbursements for out of pocket expenses. What are some ideas or examples of STAND UP fundraisers/campaigns? Throw a party: Host a donate your night out cocktail party or dinner at your home. Allow guests to donate what they can afford or what they would normally spend on an evening out. Every dollar counts and makes a huge impact. These parties are a great way to mingle, meet new people, spread the word about NYFC, and have fun. Get your kids involved: What better way to build the next generation of philanthropists than to start now? There are so many ways to get your kids, your friends kids, their school group, their social or sports teams involved. Here are a few kid-friendly ideas: Collect and recycle cans Start a coin drive it all adds up! Host a bake sale Set up a lemonade stand Have a car wash Collect donations at sporting events Rake leaves or mow lawns Host a talent or fashion show Organize a themed dress-up day at school Host an A-thon walking, reading, biking, etc. 4

5 Take on a personal challenge: Use NYFC and the nearly 12,000 youth in foster care in NYC as your inspiration as you take on a personal challenge. Ever want to run a marathon, climb a mountain, swim a long distance, walk 50 miles, or challenge your physical abilities in some other way? Now is the time to do it. Encourage your friends and family to donate $5, $10, or $25 to NYFC for every milestone in your honor. Share your birthday with NYFC: Have everything you need? Instead of gifts, have your friends and family donate to NYFC in honor of your birthday. Start your own Facebook campaign or have a birthday party and collect donations. Make it fun, it s your birthday, after all! Honor a life change: Make a donation in lieu of wedding favors to NYFC or offer guests an alternative to traditional wedding gifts by asking them to make a donation to NYFC in your name. The same can be done for baby showers, anniversary parties, graduations, and gifts in honor or in memory of someone special. Participate as a group: Social organizations, places of worship, and schools can participate too! The more people involved, the better! Get your place of employment involved; employees can pay for a dress down day or raffle off an extra day of vacation. We encourage you to come up with a fundraising event or campaign that interests and motivates you. Please fill out the application form to begin the process.

8 There are nearly 12,000 children in foster care in New York City. Thank you New Yorkers For Children for giving me hope and being a great assistance in my life as I go forth with my education and turn into the man I need to be. Maurice Our Mission: New Yorkers For Children (NYFC) works in partnership with the Administration for Children s Services (ACS) to improve the prospects of children supported by the child welfare system and to engage New Yorkers in that effort. With a focus on young people in foster care, NYFC supports programs that promote paths to stable adulthood through education and sustainable relationships with caring adults. Our Youth: NYFC targets older youth, ages 12 to 21, as they are preparing to transition out of foster care and into adulthood. More than 40% of the children in foster care in NYC are over the age of 12. This is a population that faces tremendous obstacles as they strive to build a successful adult life with very few skills and a limited support system. Our Programs: NYFC is committed to enriching the lives of young people in foster care as they strive for success. Our programs promote education and youth development and have provided college scholarships, impactful programming, skill-building opportunities, and the encouragement, guidance and support that every child deserves. They include: Back-to-School Package Program College Preparatory Conference Guardian Scholars Program Network to Success Annual Vocational Conference Youth Advisory Board Wrap to Rap Holiday Program NYFC Spirit Award Our Partnerships: NYFC funds programs implemented by ACS and other non-profit organizations that work directly with youth in foster care. Our partnership with ACS, the agency that provides oversight for all child welfare in New York City, allows NYFC to reach and impact youth in foster care far beyond those that benefit from our own programs. NYFC has inspired me by making my dreams a reality. -Ishmael, Spirit Award Recipient 450 Seventh Avenue, Suite 403, New York, NY Phone:
