fundraise for Active Minds
This Mental Health Month, join Active Minds and thousands of mental health advocates in saying loudly, I am #HereForYou.
While Mental Health Month officially begins May 1, you can start changing the culture around mental health by creating a fundraiser to send to friends and family TODAY!
Let your network know why you value Active Minds by sharing your own #HereForYou message.
Telling someone “I am here for you” is important anytime. Now, we are all adjusting to some really abrupt changes that are leading many to experience mental health struggles — in fact our data shows 80% of students say COVID-19 has worsened their mental health. In our ‘new normal’, it’s time we all make clear to all around us: there is someone here for you because you are important and your mental health matters.
Learn more about #HereForYou and download your own “Here For You sticker to post on social.

In an effort to provide immediate aid, Giving Tuesday announced #GivingTuesdayNow, which takes place on May 5, 2020. #GivingTuesdayNow is a chance for people around the world to stand together in unity and use their individual power of generosity to help nonprofits in need.
To help, GoFundMe Charity launched a #GivingTuesdayNow Match Program, and will make a $1,000 match grant to qualified nonprofits that raise at least $1,000, limited to the first 300 nonprofits – so launch your fundraiser early!
If you’re a member of an Active Minds campus chapter, please see the resources and information available on the Chapter Fundraising page.
No matter what fundraising option you choose, be sure to let us know so we can thank you personally!
