Our HOPEFUL team members make a small monthly contribution to cover the expenses of running the HOPEFUL school, a school in Uganda, East Africa, that has been built through the donations and efforts of the lacrosse community. One time gifts are great, but the lifeblood of the school runs off of monthly contributions. Team members receive a monthly newsletter with updates from the school! Make a monthly gift, and join the HOPEFUL team!
a HOPEFUL gathering: This type of event could be a very effective way for lacrosse parents, coaches or young professionals to organize a social gathering that raises money for, and awareness of our programs, all in a fun, relaxed social setting.
a HOPEFUL run: All around the country, literally every week, there are road races being held where people are running to support their favorite charities. From your local 5k to a big marathon, you can support Fields of Growth, while staying fit by creating a fundraising page via our First Giving platform. Click here to see an example of how this has been done successfully for us in the past. It is really easy to do! Find a race, set up your fundraising page, then email your friends and family!
a HOPEFUL clinic : This is a favorite empowerment strategy of many of our high school and college supporters. It is an early and practical way for them to do what they love (coach and teach lacrosse) while generating support for Fields of Growth. HOPEFUL clinics can easily be combined with an equipment drive to double your impact.
Additional events and activities are endless; HOPEFUL tournaments, bake sales, car washes, lemonade stands, walks, bike rides etc.
