How To Toolkit

LAH logo
The Lend A Hand "how to" guide offers step-by-step planning and marketing help for volunteers who are leading a fundraising effort to benefit an individual/family experiencing hardship. Planning worksheets, marketing templates, and many of other forms are included for customization and printing.

Planning a successful fundraising effort generally takes a minimum of 4-6 weeks, with more planning time required if multiple activities and/or a large scale community effort is planned.

Eligibility guidelines and a request form to apply for DMF Lend A Hand matching funds is included in Step 4. Volunteers are encouraged to apply to Lend A Hand early in the planning process, ideally 1-2 months prior to scheduled activities and/or before marketing efforts are underway.
