Team Vegan — Thank You!

 

Each Spring, Team Vegan brings together Vegan Outreach staff, volunteers, and activists to raise the money needed to keep our outreach going.

Team Vegan donations are matched dollar-for-dollar by a small group of anonymous donors.

In honor of seeing how well our 10 Weeks to Vegan program is doing, we’re trying to raise the money to pay for ten weeks of Vegan Outreach in its entirety!

$510,000 will fuel ten weeks of campus leafleting, vegan food sampling, thousands of booklets, fair salaries for all our staff—everything we do! $459,000 will pay for nine weeks. $408,000 will pay for eight.

We need you! The animals are counting on us to spread veganism and bring an end to the violence they endure.

As a Team Vegan member, you’ll get:

  • Your own personal fundraising page on TeamVegan.org
  • Access to the private Team Vegan 2019 Facebook group, where you can share knowledge with other members—and interact with Vegan Outreach staff too!
  • Tips, resources, and help from professional fundraisers and other members
  • Any member who raises at least $500 will get a Team Vegan shirt
  • The top fundraiser will also receive a special prize to be announced soon!

How Team Vegan Works

Step 1: Sign Up

Create an account with a username and password. Most people join individually, but you can also put together a team with your friends or local vegan group.

Look for our email containing a couple important questions, helpful tips, and a ton of resources to make your Team Vegan campaign a success.

Step 2: Customize Your Campaign Page

Upload a picture of yourself or your team.
Square, closeup photos work best. If you need help cropping or resizing a photo, let us know.

Decide on an activity, if you want.
Some members choose a physical activity. Others choose a personal challenge. Our favorites, though, are outreach activities! Here are some examples:

  • Hand out a Vegan Outreach leaflet for every five dollars raised
  • Create and post a vegan cooking video once a week during the campaign
  • For every $20 you raise, send an email requesting more vegan options from a restaurant
  • Host a vegan potluck if you meet your goal

Write your Team Vegan page text.
Replace the default text on your profile with your own story. Use this space to tell potential donors what this cause means to you, why you want them to donate to Team Vegan, and what activity or challenge you plan to do, if any.

Choose a fundraising goal.
Your goal is up to you, but we suggest a minimum of $500. You can raise more than you think, trust us. You’ll be surprised by how generous your peers are.

Step 3: Raise Money

Invite your friends, family, and community members to support your campaign. It’s easier than it sounds and we’re here to help—with tips, tricks, and best practices, as well as a library of resources for you to use and a Facebook group where you can pick the brains of other members.
