WE’VE SWITCHED DONATION PLATFORMS!
We are no longer using DonorBox to process our donations. All donations can now be made through MobileCause, which is a platform dedicated to peer-to-peer fundraising and will help us reach our fundraising goals. MobileCause streamlines our donation process and introduces a text to donate option making it easier than ever to support The Pad Project. If you are a recurring donor, be on the lookout for an email from our team outlining how to move your monthly donation to MobileCause. As a small, independent, and growing non-profit, donations are key to our ability to continue our work. Every dollar helps! Thank you for your continued support!

Start your own Pad Project Fundraiser
Decide what kind of fundraiser you’d like to plan in your community. Examples include screenings of Period. End of Sentence., bake sales, online fundraising campaigns, 5ks or other walk/runs, jewelry or craft sales, tampon/pad drives, art sales … the possibilities are endless!
2. Assemble your fundraising team
Once you have an idea, organize community members to help you make it into a reality. Fundraising is often easier to do in groups – The Pad Project itself started with one high school chapter of Girls Learn International. Try collaborating with your neighbors, classmates, teammates, or members of your faith community! You can even work together to create an online fundraising platform through MobileCause!
Here’s How It Works:
Create a fundraising page that shares your story and connection to The Pad Project and why ending period stigma is important to you! Click here to create your page!
- Input your first name, last name, and email address
- Create a password
- Set a fundraising goal and add an image to your page
- A sample page with suggested copy will be created for you with more details about The Pad Project; if you would like to add or change any of the text you are more than welcome to!
- Your page has been created! In the top right hand corner you will find a link to share your page with your family, friends, and colleagues through email or social media.

3. Spread the word!
Advertise your event to the largest audience possible. Utilize social media or create a flyer to distribute in your area. Consider creating a Facebook event or sending out invitations.
