We believe that no worthy nonprofit should have to spend money to raise money.  

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

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.

What Other Nonprofits Are Saying...

"I had to confess after the luncheon that I was one of the Board Members that thought, "It's just not going to work, people never bid that high", but we all agreed we had nothing to lose and only to 

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