Fundraising Case Studies

Crowdfunding for Homeless and Runaway Youth

“Harbor House is a non-profit agency dedicated to assisting homeless, abused, neglected and abandoned youth, ages 10-21, throughout Central New Jersey. Our mission is to provide a safe haven and caring environment for vulnerable, at-risk youth to enable them to unlock their potential and learn skills that will empower them to build healthier lives, relationships and futures.”

“We understand that it’s not your fault, and the world when you are unprepared is indeed dark, cold and loud. Harbor House, an IRS certified 501©3 non-profit agency, staffed by caring experts, provides you with more than shelter. We freely give you the full, individualized support you need to begin your healthy, happy and ultimately successful life’s journey.”

Helping our homeless and runaway youth is what Ride for New Beginnings is all about, a lively crowdfunding event. Harbor House needs funding for its emergency youth shelter, transitional living program, outreach programs and family crisis intervention services.

Ride for New Beginnings

This year the bike-a-thon fundraiser has two options, a 3 day or a 5 day ride starting on June 26. Individual crowdfunding participants are required to pay a $100 registration fee, which is a great idea in deferring logistical costs and raising more funds. Each crowdfunding participant has created a fundraising page and are multiplying their fundraising dollars as they tap into their social networks to raise funds for homeless and runaway youth. They’ve included personalized pictures and videos, a personal statement, fundraising thermometer and goal. There is an online control panel for each biker to email friends, update their fundraising website, and manage incoming online donations.
