Fundraising Idea: Pep Rally

Campus Pride utilizes the time, talent and skills of students, faculty, staff and educators to fulfill our mission of creating safer, more LGBTQ-friendly colleges and universities.

Volunteers help our organization continue to grow in supporting the needs of LGBTQ and Ally student leaders and campus groups. One principal method volunteers support Campus Pride is through fundraising.

How might one set up a volunteer fundraising campaign? Here’s a great idea to check out:

Host a pep rally

It’s fun and easy! Now, some might call it a “house party.”  But, with Campus Pride, you, your family and friends can show your cheer and support by hosting a pep rally!

When you host a pep rally, you’ll:

  • Introduce others to Campus Pride and what we do,
  • Encourage your family and friends to come out for equality by believing in Campus Pride,
  • Raise necessary funds to support our work to build future leaders and safer, more LGBT-friendly colleges and universities, and
  • Invest in Campus Pride for the future of equality.

Who? Invite 12, 25, or 50 people you know and ask them to bring a guest.  These may be people in your community, such as family, friends, coworkers, people from your place of worship, or neighbors.

What? A pep rally – a fun time to be social, educate, raise donations and build interest in Campus Pride.

When? Any time—just let us know and we’ll help you get ready!  We will send the official PEP RALLY KIT which includes an official welcome, a set of pom-poms, lapel pins, brochures, donation forms and promotional information.

Where? Your house, a restaurant/bar, coffee house, or your community center!  Think fun and fabulous.

Why? The future of our movement for equality lies in young adult leaders of tomorrow. Help us raise money to support programs and services that build future leaders and safer, more LGBT-Friendly colleges and universities.

Ready to get your cheer on? To host your pep rally now, please send an email to or call 704-277-6710.
