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!
