Welcome, Change Maker!

Thank you for joining Aim High in the movement to provide life-changing experiences to low-income middle-school youth in Northern California.

We are proud of the work we do at Aim High and are excited to roll up our sleeves with you—our biggest champions—to close the opportunity and achievement gaps. We look forward to working with passionate and driven people dedicated to lifting up their communities. Together, we will make a difference. Now let’s get to work.

How to Fundraise for Aim High

There are numerous ways to fundraise and support the transformative summer opportunities Aim High provides. Here are our three favorites:

  1. Ask. It’s that simple. Tell your friends, relatives, neighbors, coworkers and social networks why Aim High matters to you, and ask them to make a donation. The best way to organize this effort is online through Razoo or Crowdrise. Set your goal and share your campaign. The more people you tell, the quicker you’ll reach your goal!
  2. Host an event. Who doesn’t love a good night out with friends? Turn any party into an Aim High benefit. Ask for a minimum or suggested donation from all guests. An easy way to track RSVPs and donations is through Evite. As a beneficiary of the site, you can customize your invitation to include a donation button for Aim High. It’s super easy!
  3. Pledge your birthday, wedding or anniversary! Ask for donations to Aim High instead of gifts. One teacher raised $5,000 for us by asking her wedding guests to donate to us instead of buying gifts from a registry.

We can provide you with our logo, photographs, videos and details about our mission and impact. If you need a speaker for your event, please contact us at events@aimhigh.org and we’ll try to accommodate your request.

Thank you for joining us in making a long-lasting impact on thousands of Bay Area middle school students’ lives.
