Host an Event

Third Party Fundraising

SOWINS encourages special fundraising events and campaigns that you carry out to benefit the work of our organization – this is what we call a third party event/campaign. We have an event guide and application form for this type of event.

We want to help you in any way we can. We must also exercise care to ensure that your event falls within our organizational and legal guidelines. This guidebook was created to support you with your project as well as to help you understand our needs around third party events.

Important – If you would like to host a fundraising event to benefit SOWINS, we ask that a Third Party Agreement be completed and submitted to us prior to starting to work on the event or campaign. This allows us to be aware of your plans and to know how best we can assist you.

Make an Impact! Help us end violence against women and take a stand – your own way.
