Peer Fundraising


Accomplish more, Together.

You can sign up online to raise funds for Reality Changers. By reaching out to your family and friends, you can expand our reach and bring in more donations for Reality Changers students and alumni. Every dollar raised supports programming like tutoring, mentorship, career development, college application guidance, and the alumni network.

What is peer fundraising?

Peer-to-peer (P2P) fundraisers set up their own online fundraising pages and then ask their networks for donations. You are probably most familiar with peer-to-peer fundraising if you have participated in a charity 5k run or given to a friend’s birthday fundraiser on platforms like Facebook and GoFundMe.


It’s easy to get started and our team is here to support you every step of the way! Your fundraising page will already have graphics and language that you can use to promote the Reality Changers cause. In addition, you will receive a toolkit and other resources to help you ask for donations.


If any questions arise or if you run into any complications, a staff member from the Development Team will be able to assist you!


Upcoming Peer Fundraising Opportunities

Just Getting Started - May & June 2022

This spring, Reality Changers is raising funds to celebrate all of our graduates and their amazing accomplishments. We’ve set a goal of raising $31,420; ten dollars for every student we’ve served since 2001! You can help us to reach this goal.

Funds raised this May and June will support our Alumni Network, which provides academic advising, life coaching, professional development support, and more to our high school graduates. By becoming a peer fundraiser, you can help ensure that new college students get the support they need to become first-generation college graduates and launch their careers.


Over The Edge - October 22, 2022

Join Reality Changers for a one-of-a-kind fundraiser! Over the Edge is your opportunity to rappel down the side of a high-rise building. Enjoy gorgeous views of sunny San Diego and a life-changing adrenaline rush — all while making a difference for local youth. No prior experience necessary, for participants ages 13 to 103!


Anyone who wants to rappel can set up a custom online fundraising page. Every person who raises a minimum of $1,000 for Reality Changers secures a place on the ropes. Every dollar raised supports students working to become first-generation college graduates and agents of change in their communities. Space is limited, so sign up today!
