UMR Fundraising Leaders
At United Mission for Relief and Development, the great impact of our aid would not be possible without the commitment of our dedicated volunteers. There are numerous opportunities to get involved and support our programmatic work but one of the most tangible ways is by becoming a UMR Fundraising Leader!
Being a UMR Fundraising Leader takes your contributions to a level beyond a one-time or recurring donation. It gives YOU the power to raise funds for our projects within your own community and turn yourself into a bonafide crowdsourcing superstar!
By recruiting new donors, marketing our programs, and spreading the word about our work far and wide, you will be crucial in helping us fulfill our mission to become the organization of choice for improving lives worldwide.
And UMR will be right by your side to support your fundraising efforts by providing you with donation appeals, development strategies, impact stories, photos, graphics, and much more that will help strengthen your calls to give.
Benefits of UMR Fundraising Leaders:
- Leadership opportunity within our volunteer program
- Significant autonomy to fundraise for and market our projects
- Support, guidance, and materials provided to you by UMR
- Recognition levels and accompanying perks provided by UMR
- Tangible impact knowing the donations you accrue go directly to our work on the ground
A significant benefit of becoming a UMR Fundraising Leader is the flexibility it allows to allocate donations as timely as possible and provide the most impactful assistance. By contributing to UMR’s programmatic general funds, we can distribute the money we raise together to our most current and pressing relief efforts. This flexibility is essential for a humanitarian organization that responds to crisis situations as seen in the case of the Lebanon explosion in the summer of 2020. Plus, you can rest assured that when aid or services are distributed to a country we help, your contributions are being put toward that relief and development!
