While there are many ways to get involved with the Pad Project, donations are key to our ability to continue our work. We are a small, independent, and growing nonprofit – every dollar helps!
Start your own Pad Project Fundraiser
There’s no more powerful way to support our work than to host a fundraiser in your community! To make it easier for you, we created this step-by-step fundraising guide to help you get from point A to point Z. Follow the steps below to plan 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!
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. If you let us know about your event in advance, we may be able to promote your fundraiser on the Pad Project’s media channels as well.
4. HOST YOUR EVENT
Have fun at your event and watch the donations flow in! Make sure to store cash donations in a secure location. Take photos and videos of your event and send them to The Pad Project on our social media channels!

Mobile Cause Peer-To-Peer Fundraising Platform:
We are humbled by all the requests to support The Pad Project!! The best way to do so is to fundraise to support our mission to create and cultivate local and global partnerships to end period stigma and to empower women worldwide.
The Pad Project is now utilizing MobileCause, a platform dedicated to peer-to-peer fundraising. MobileCause is a global platform, which has allowed us to streamline our donation process, as well as introduce Text to Donate, which means that you can donate to us (and so many of your other favorite organizations!) via text. Even more exciting, MobileCause is the perfect platform for group fundraisers, meaning that you and your friends can join as a team and fundraise together. You can challenge nearby schools and groups to see which fundraiser can raise the most!
