Fundraise Your Way and Make Your Mark on Lupus

Make Your Mark is the community fundraising program of the Lupus Foundation of America. Each year, hundreds of Make Your Mark members organize unique events and athletic feats that raise money to fight lupus. Use your passion to raise funds for lupus through a local event, special occasion, athletic competition or whatever you have in mind.

Get Creative with Your Fundraiser

A birthday party. A bake sale. A 5k. A half marathon, marathon, or triathlon for lupus. There's no limit to how you can raise money to fight lupus. Here are some popular ways lupus advocates like you around the U.S. are bringing their communities closer to raise critical funds for lupus research. 


Throw a Party

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.

Get Active

From marathons to 5ks, cycling, hiking or jumping rope the possibilities are endless. Put that personal challenge to work by signing up as an individual fundraiser and help to create a world without lupus! Get your community moving to create a world without lupus. Host an urban treasure hunt, 5k runs or walks, an indoor cycling event the possibilities are endless!

Whatever You Have in Mind

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™!

Livestream to End Lupus

Game On! to End Lupus unites streamers from around the world as they play video games and get creative, using their platforms to help end lupus. Held over a three day period in May, during Lupus Awareness Month, streamers are welcome to stream as little or as much as they would like during this time. However long you stream, you will be helping in the fight against lupus.

Organize a Virtual Fundraiser

With a virtual fundraiser, you can invite friends and family to support the fight against lupus no matter where they live. Hosting a virtual fundraiser is easy and fun. Once you register your event, you'll receive a page that you can personalize with photos and information about why you are fundraising for lupus. Then, we’ll send you everything you need to make your virtual event a success!
