Over the years we have developed a number of fundraising templates and tools to help participants fundraise their pledge. Feel free to download them and make them your own.
Below we have compiled our best resources to help you tell the story and reach your fundraising pledge. We also encourage you to visit our Media page. There you’ll find logos, brochures, church announcements and other downloadable resource.
