Since 1999, AmFund has raised millions of dollars of unrestricted funds to local and national nonprofits by raising extra income at their special fundraising events. At no cost to our nonprofit partners, we have helped hundreds of charities, hospitals, hospices, animal rescue leagues, schools, and community organizations at thousands of events for the last 19 years.  As one hospital said, “AmFund is miracle-grow for our fundraising." Our nonprofit partners call what we do ”Fundraising, Friend-raising and Fun-raising."

        We are

    miracle-grow

  for Fundraising!

How Do We Help Raise Funds?

Our founders, Wade and Barbara West, knew from their television news careers that no nonprofit ever has enough funds to do all the good things it could do. AmFund was founded to help solve that problem. Being a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation ourselves, we believe no worthy nonprofit should ever have to spend money in order to raise money.

 

We are not in the business of selling trips, taking percentages, charging rates or fees. We are in the business of fundraising! Our fundraising sponsorship includes that personal touch which lets you focus on your patrons while we focus on raising money for you. We provide fundraising guidance as well as high emotion, high value turn-key silent and live auctions that entertain and enthrall event guests. Simply put, AmFund makes it easy for you to:

• Excite potential attendees, donors and sponsors before your event.

• Raise significant amounts of additional funds at your event.

• Ensure all attendees will continue to support you long after your event.

How Do We Help Raise Funds?

Nonprofits brief us on their mission, need for donations, and past fundraising efforts. 

Our board evaluates each nonprofit and event before granting approval.

AmFund procures bucket list trips and experiences, and provides marketing to create "buzz" and increase attendance at your event.

An AmFund team member attends qualified events to give YOUR supporters incentive to open wallets and raise even more funds for your cause!

We treat your donors with velvet gloves at your event and when they schedule their fabulous trips.  By elevating their over-all experience, it enhances their appreciation of your organization and grows your donor base.

gain and that we did, 10 trips were bid on!!! Very little work for us and much to gain" -Kathy Pegram
