Come to Sleep Out! our annual fundraiser that brings homelessness and poverty housing awareness to the forefront. The event will be held April 21-23 from 8 pm to 6 am. We will be sleeping out on Marsh Plaza but first come for the student groups, fun prizes and coffee.
The fundraising minimum to participate is $10, but we challenge each participant to raise $100. The initial $10 donation enters 5 tickets into a raffle. For each additional $10 raised, you get another ticket. Prizes include an Espresso Royale gift card, BU paraphernalia, and more. The top fundraiser wins Panera bread for a year! Sign up on our website as an individual or with your group.
All proceeds from the event will go towards the $50,000 needed to sponsor the first ever BU Habitat house. This year, Hodara Real Estate group, the first and only real estate agency completely owned and operated by college students, has graciously offered to match the first $1,000 raised at this event with a $1,000 donation.
To assist you in fundraising, we included a link to a spreadsheet to track donations, and a sample fundraising letter to modify and send out to your friends and family.
