Supporting food and education programs for impoverished children in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, providing hope and opportunity for a brighter future

Create a Fundraising Event

Whether selling garden vegetables, or hosting a cooking class and donating the enrollment fees to the What If? Foundation, our donors have been finding more and more creative ways to help raise money for the programs we support in Haiti.  Whether you plan a small gathering at your home or work with a group to create a bigger, more public event, your efforts will be so appreciated, and such a gift to the children in Haiti.

In the following video, Margaret Trost talks about how you can help support the Foundation. We hope you’ll find it useful. We’ve also provided a list of fundraising ideas below. For additional ideas, please visit our Recent Fundraising Events page. And finally, for DVD copies of our most recent slideshow, brochures, bookmarks, photos, and/or any other help, please contact our office.
