Create an Event

It’s easy to take your idea and turn it into reality! As a Team Fox member, you have access to a wealth of tools and resources to make fundraising, planning and hosting as simple and stress-free as possible.

Getting Started

Now that you’ve joined our group of of dynamic and dedicated fundraisers across the globe, we suggest you start by personalizing your fundraising page with event details, your story and a photo. Make sure to add your event to the Team Fox public calendar to help promote it to the greater MJFF community. 

Choosing Your Event

If you haven't decided what variety of fundraiser you want to host, start by answering these questions: What do you love to do? Do you have a hobby or a special skill?

Finding ways to incorporate your passions and interests can help you determine what type of event to create. Our most popular event ideas are golf tournaments, galas, parties, pancake breakfasts and community running, walking and cycling events.

What’s Next?

  1. Set your fundraising goal.
    Decide how much you would like to raise or the number of participants in attendance. To help reach your goal, establish benchmarks throughout your journey to track your progress. And feel comfortable adjusting your goal to reflect your efforts and results.
  2. Pick a date and location.
    After you decide on the type of event you are going to hold, determine when and where you will host it. Once you have those logistics confirmed, you can work backwards to organize an efficient planning process.
  3. Browse tips and templates.
    From Five Ways to Kick-start Your Fundraising to a thank-you letter template, we share resources for reaching your Team Fox fundraising goal, spreading the word on and offline, and connecting with donors before and after your event.
