Marketing Support for Fundraising to Benefit The City Mission
Many groups outside The City Mission hold collections or events to raise money or provide material goods on their own and deliver the proceeds in the form of checks or items to the Mission. All of these efforts are greatly appreciated by the Mission and are recognized in our publications and website as much as possible.
The Initiative Projects Program was developed to help assist such groups in the area of marketing the event. These projects are developed and executed by individuals and groups not employed by the Mission.
The City Mission does not provide financial contributions to these projects. Types of support offered will vary by the event's need and what other projects or events are scheduled in the same time period.
Applying to the Initiative Projects Program
Please send a written description of your event or project to The City Mission as far in advance of the date as possible to maximize the promotional opportunities available.

- Proposed date(s)
- Anticipated number of attendees/participants
