RAICES Fundraising Toolkit

Welcome to the RAICES Fundraising Toolkit! RAICES uses Classy for peer to peer fundraising. Peer to peer fundraising allows you to start a fundraiser on behalf of RAICES. When you start an individual or team fundraiser through classy, you will get your own shareable fundraising page. Set a goal, track your progress, and share with friends.

INSTAGRAM POSTS

TIP Make sure to link your fundraiser in your bio by going to edit profile on your Instagram account.

Today, more than ever, we are needing to stand up for what is right. We need a just and humane immigration system that treats asylum-seekers with dignity and respect. @RAICESTEXAS is shining a light on injustices happening in our own country and providing support to immigrant families through legal and social services. Click the link in my bio to #JointheFight and support this wonderful cause.

[Share how immigration impacts your life. Are you a child of an immigrant? Are you an immigrant yourself?] We need to stand together and continue to share the beautiful stories of immigration. Seeking asylum is legal. Detaining families and children should not be the new normal in our country. Join me in supporting @RAICESTEXAS, a nonprofit organization that provides legal and social services to immigrants and refugees. #JointheFight and empower our migrant community. Link in bio.
