Fundraising

We continuously seek various ways to raise funds for our programs and operations. Regular funding is vital to enable us to run dynamic cultural projects to benefit people in poverty as well to pay for our overhead expenses.

Much of our resources come from private donations and fundraising activities organized by our friends and supporters.

    • Organizing concerts, shows, and bazaars
    • Selling handmade products designed and made by our friends, supporters, and families
    • Auctioning artworks by friends and community members
    • Vending ATD merchandise: greeting cards, books, and t-shirts
    • Getting sponsors for participation in charity races
    • Requesting for grants from private companies
    • Crowdfunding and online donations via social networks
    • Asking relatives to donate to ATD Fourth World in lieu of gifts for birthdays, weddings or other events.
