We love all the creative ways our supporters are engaging friends, family and their communities to raise funds for Beyond Type 1. Because our Leadership + Founding Friends pay all operational costs, 100% of every dollar you raise and donate to Beyond Type 1 will go directly to the most promising efforts and programs working to educate, advocate and cure Type 1.

Want to donate your birthday or diaversary? Host a dance-a-thon? Do a mustache growing funndraiser? Donate in honor of someone? Add a charity angle to your sports event?

You can do all of that and more through our DIY Fundraising Platform!

Below are fun, clever ideas for adults, teens, kids and families to be generous, get crafty and get moving — with minimal organization and supplies — we even have sleek downloadable signs, banners and forms available for your use. Whatever you do, we hope you will tweet about it, share your pictures on social media and tag us (@beyondtype1) or drop us a line. We can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Here’s what others have done before!

  • Give up your birthday, holiday or special occasion
  • Sell something homemade: bake goods, lemonade, jewelry, greeting cards, etc.
  • Provide a service such as washing cars, walking dogs, mowing lawns, raking leaves or babysitting
  • Organize a race, hike, dance-a-thon or hula-hoop-off
  • Print out our wrapper and attach it to a jar to collect spare change. These coin jars can be placed anywhere and everywhere and will be even more effective if you add our informational sign nearby.

Check out our Spotlight on Fundraisers to see what the Type 1 community is up to and how they are contributing to Beyond Type 1.
