Fundraising is typically very challenging for small non-profits. It’s expensive and time consuming, and in many cases unprofitable. This wasn’t the case this weekend in Santa Cruz, when a collection of non-profit organizations hosted the 31st annual Human Race Walkathon and Fun Run.
146 small, local non-profit organizations got together to raise money as a group (they will later divide it up amongst themselves). The event was so popular that somewhere between 1,500 & 1,700 people participated (up from 1,200 last year) and the event is expected to generate about $250,000 (up from $200,000 in 2010)!
By working together these non-profits made fundraising for “the little guys” possible. Amazing!
