Start a Facebook Fundraiser
Facebook makes it easy to tell others how you are working to end lupus and invite them to join you.
Start a fundraiser to raise money for the Lupus Foundation of America and rally your friends and family to help you reach your goal. You can also have fun and raise awareness of lupus at the same time!
The services we provide--the resources on living with lupus, the education programs to help you navigate lupus, the research we push forward--all take much-needed funds. With a Facebook Fundraiser, you are not doing it on your own.

Why should you start a Facebook fundraiser?
Because it's easy, quick, and allows you to raise funds that will make a difference in the lives of millions of families impacted by lupus.
You can also use your personal fundraiser as a way to tell your story and bring greater attention and awareness to lupus. It's important to tell others how lupus has affected you and why have made it your mission to help end lupus. Even those who choose not to donate will learn more about lupus and gain a greater understanding of the disease.
Don't forget that there are other ways to raise funds yourself. Start an event!
