A note about fundraising

It can sometimes feel uncomfortable asking for support. But more often than not, sponsors report that they are amazed by the generosity of their communities.

By fundraising on behalf of a newcomer, you are inviting your community to join your welcome journey. You’re offering them the opportunity to take an act of welcome and support their new neighbor!

Take the leap because you won’t be alone. There’ll be lots of people to catch you and help you and hold you and make this work. I’ve just been stunned. Every time we’ve reached out, someone has offered something.
