Don’t forget to share your fundraising successes with us – we’d love to spotlight your creative ideas and stories on our site!
Host an Event
Coordinate an event to raise money for MAZON. Your event can be anything you imagine, but here are some ideas:
- Walk to end hunger
- Garage sale
- Dinner with paid attendance or MAZON tzedakah boxes on each table
- Bake sale
- Lemonade stand
- Craft fair
Enjoy a Night Out
Many local restaurants, movie theaters or playhouses will donate a portion of the proceeds from one night to a worthy cause. Find a local deli, California Pizza Kitchen, ice cream shop, movie theater, etc. to donate a percentage from one night and then get all your friends, family, community members to go out and support MAZON.
Tap into Social Media
Create a Cause on Facebook to benefit MAZON. The Cause can be in celebration of a holiday, your birthday, anniversary, etc. Or tweet a request to your followers that they donate to MAZON. (If you contact us in advance, we can set up a unique campaign and provide a unique link to track the donations that result!)
Sell MAZON items
MAZON has silly bands, t-shirts and sweatshirts that you can sell at a local event to raise money to fight hunger.
Choose MAZON for a Tzedakah or Tikkun Olam project
Have your synagogue, religious school, elementary school or other group choose MAZON as the tzedakah project for a month. We can provide educational activities to help your group learn about hunger and what can be done today to help end it. Then ask the community to donate throughout the month to MAZON.
Host a Hunger Seder
Encourage your synagogue to host a Hunger Seder. MAZON can provide a customized Hagaddah as well as educational materials and a matzo cover art activity for children. Donate a portion of participants’ ticket cost to MAZON or use MAZON tzedakah boxes on each table to encourage participants to support MAZON at Passover.
