Host an Online Fundraiser

The Make Your Mark™ program is an online fundraising platform to empower supporters, like you, and brings together communities across the country to make their mark in the fight against lupus by creating unique event to raise funds to support the millions of families impacted by lupus. If you have a love for cooking, biking, performing or even just getting together with friends for a good time, you can turn that passion into a wonderful way to raise money for a great cause. The Make Your Mark™ program will help you to create a unique event —so that you can make your mark in solving the cruel mystery of lupus.

Dedicate your wedding, Bar Mitzvah or birthday party to raise funds to end lupus. How about hosting a party at a bar with signature purple drinks? Get your friends together at a restaurant where the night’s profits go to fight lupus? A party at the office after work? Or maybe just pancakes for the neighborhood. You pick the party, and we’ll help you organize your friends.


From marathons to 5ks, triathlons to cycling events, walking, swimming or jumping rope the possibilities are endless. Whether you are registered for an existing event or would like to host something in your community, combining your physical efforts with your fundraising allows you to experience that place where the magic happens.


Ever host a fashion show — at the community college or at your local church? Paint your town purple? Think your friends won’t get soaked with water balloons for a good cause? You might persuade them. Anything is possible if you use your imagination and our fundraising platform. So start brainstorming and Make Your Mark™!
