Participant Toolkit

"You’re not alone." That’s what we tell the young people in our care every day, and now we’re telling it to you. Review and utilize the resources in this toolkit to make the most of your Sleep Out experience.

Fundraising 101

If you’ve never fundraised before (or if it’s been awhile), our step-by-step instructions will help you be effective with just a little effort. Get Started.

Sample Emails

Finding the right words to share with your network can be the hardest part of fundraising. We’ve done the heavy lifting so you can copy-and-paste. Take a look.

Social Media

Ready to move beyond email? Use your social networks as an easy, effective, and creative way to share your Sleep Out with a large audience. Learn how.

Offline Fundraising

Your fundraising page is not the only way to solicit or receive donations! Taking your campaign offline helps you connect with people you haven’t before, or with existing supporters in a new way. Find ideas.

If you have any questions about Covenant House, fundraising, or Sleep Out generally, contact your event lead.
