Tips for Raising Money

As you share your SANCA story with others, tell them what SANCA means to you and how the Scholarship Fund helps all youth regardless of economic circumstances to have the same amazing circus experiences that you do. You never know who will want to support your efforts -- family and friends, co-workers, your hair dresser or barber, your mail carrier, your kids' teachers, your clients, your baker, your favorite store owners, and others you interact with regularly. Contributions of all sizes are welcome - $10, $20, $50, $500, $5,000 - small amounts make a BIG difference! DoJiggy offers a Participant Fundraising Library for fundraising ideas and tips, sample letters, a detailed User Guide to the Participant Control Panel, and more!
