Since 1917, The Buffalo City Mission has been a non-profit organization for homeless and at-risk men, women, and children in Western New York. Last year, we provided 164,000 meals and 78,000 beds to those in need. Besides food and shelter, the Mission provides long-term recovery programs, counseling, work and life-skills training, educational assistance, and health care services.
Our dream is to provide an opportunity for our clients to live in safe affordable permanent housing working in a career job that honors their gifting while walking in God’s light.
Now is your opportunity to become a personal fundraiser to support the Buffalo City Mission. By engaging with your friends and family using email and social media to spread the word, there is no telling the potential impact your campaign could have. With a personal campaign you are part of the solution to changing our city for the greater good! Consider launching a campaign today. Here are a few ideas to get you started, just remember: the sky is the limit.
Birthdays: Start a birthday campaign by asking your friends and family to donate to your campaign rather than getting gifts this year. Use your birthday to change the world.
Weddings: Some couples dedicate their wedding to raise money for Buffalo City Mission. Ask your guests to support your campaign to eliminate poverty in our city instead of buying elaborate presents.
Running/Biking: Run a marathon, bike across the state or anything in between. Ask supporters to donate to your campaign.
