 FUNDRAISING FOR HOPE RISING

Social Media platforms have made it easier than ever before to share our ideas and passions with others. This tool allows us to inform and encourage our relational network to learn about and care for issues and causes they may never have known about had we not taken the time to share with them. 

We are grateful to have experienced just how effective campaigns hosted on Facebook and Instagram have been to raise awareness and involvement with the Hope Rising Uganda community. Over the past few years, social media sites have made it easier than ever to quickly and easily raise tax-deductible funds for an organization that you care about -- and at certain times of year they even waive processing fees and offer matching funds to enable contributions to be multiplied!

Past social media campaigns have allowed Hope Rising to raise much-needed funds for special projects, such as providing life-saving funds to support emergency food distributions for our community during pandemic lock-downs. Other times they help to bring awareness to a capacity-building effort such as clean water or business training initiatives. Regardless, we are always so encouraged when our community chooses to support us by leveraging their own social network in support of the beautiful people of Uganda! 

You too, 
can ignite hope in rural Uganda!
