DIY Fundraising

Gather for Good

Turn any gathering into a fundraiser for Donate Life Northwest!

Introduce your friends, family, coworkers, or to the Donate Life Northwest mission, and let them know that their financial contribution will help save lives and improve health! Planning a "Gather for Good" can be as simple as setting out donation envelopes, or as elaborate as a themed gathering, featuring a speaker and/or a Threads of Life quilt. Some examples of fundraisers that have supported Donate Life Northwest programs:

  • Celebrations of life, birthdays, transplant anniversaries, reunions
  • Oscar Night, Super Bowl parties, holiday parties
  • Dinner parties, book clubs, game days, craft nights
  • Garage, bake, craft or other sales


Involve your workplace or ask your favorite business to help save lives:

  • Promote a Donate Life Day: share organ, eye and tissue donation information and contribute a portion of sales
  • Choose Donate Life Northwest as your designated charity for employee "jeans day" or similar collection
  • Visit the Corporate Partnership page for more ways to get your organization involved


Not up for "in-real-life" fundraising and rather go digital?
