Help Us Fundraise

We have three fundraising events every year, each of which help to fund our programming throughout. And we invite you start a team and come hit the track, while helping us raise some funds for our Annual Walkathon. Put on your Sunday Best and come hit the dance floor, while helping us raise some funds for our Annual Gala. Or, join the millions of thoughtful committed citizens worldwide, who are participating in the largest global giving day, while helping us maximize our impact in the lives of the families that we serve.

 Did you know that the 27th of this month is Giving Tuesday, the largest global giving day all year? We're excited that - for the first time - The Answer Inc will be a part of this worldwide event, providing you with a chance to give back to your community. Our organization has set a goal to raise $10,000   in just 24 hours. It'll take everyone to get it done, but the impact your donations will have is going to be incredible.
