Towards Our Goal






Recurring Donors

We have teamed up for Funds2org for this Shoe Drive! After they collect our used and new shoes that are distributed to microentrepreneurs in developing nations. It's pretty great all around, shoes stay out of landfills, we raise money for the Dup15q Alliance and we help others in developing Nations!

  • Funds2Orgs will provide the bags and rubber bands for you to use at no cost
  • Funds2Orgs will assign a fundraising coach that will work with you throughout your fundraiser to insure that you are on the path to a successful campaign
  • Funds2Orgs will provide a link to our marketing page where you will find templates for a press release, flyers and other tools for planning and marketing
  • Funds2Orgs will provide transportation for the shoes that you collect so you don't have to worry about shipping, we send our truck to you
  • Funds2Orgs will pay your organization $.40 per pound for all pairs of gently worn used and new shoes collected
  • Your goal is to engage your peers supporters and community to collect 100 bags filled with 25 pairs of gently worn used and new shoes each
  • 100 bags filled with 25 pairs of gently worn used and new shoes each will raise on average $1000
  • You will need roughly 5'x10' storage to house the collected shoes until pick up, remember that the fundraiser is 60 days and we will pick up within 30 days of completion.
  • There is no cap, you will be paid $.40 per pound for all pairs of gently worn used and new shoes collected
  • There are no out of pocket expenses, however, if your total collections are below 100 bags filled with 25 pairs each, $250 would be deducted from the funds that you raise in order to cover the cost of freight. For example, if 80 bags are collected, that will raise on average $800. Being that this is below the 100 bag goal, the $250 fee would be deducted and your organization would receive the net sum of $550. Please note that this is never an out of pocket expense.
  • Please plan to have three people to help load the bags on the truck at pickup, if over 100 bags then please plan two more for each hundred bags collected
Starting a fundraiser is easy to do, and it's fun. We'll even give you all the tools you'll need to make a difference. With your help we can ensure the Dup15q Alliance can continue to provide family support and promote awareness, research and targeted treatments for Dup15q syndrome..
