TCF Birthday Campaign

Birthdays for Breakfast

Providing all of our kids with a nutritious start to their day costs money! RVCV currently spends a whopping $1,700 per month on breakfast ingredients alone. To raise this cost, we’ve decided to pledge our birthdays! 

Our goal is to raise $10,000 to support our breakfast program for 6 months. Join us to provide a nutritious breakfast for the kids we know and love. 


As your birthday approaches this year, reach out to your family and friends to encourage them to make a donation equal to your age in lieu of shopping for a gift. For example, “I’m turning 25 this year. Would you consider making a donation of $25 to TCF instead of buying me a gift?”

To make this process as easy as possible, we encourage you to use our crowdfunding page through Funraise to create your own customized TCF Birthday Campaign page, which you can forward via email, or post on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

All you have to do is:

  1. Create a profile on Funraise by clicking the “Become a Fundraiser” link on our TCF Birthday Campaign Page.
  2. Personalize your profile (Click here for instructions on how to set up a profile with Funraise)
  3. Spread the word!
  4. Thank your friends and family for their gifts! You can view all gifts on your Birthday Campaign page and easily send out thank you messages.



If running a campaign isn’t your choice for this project, feel free to choose other friends and family members to celebrate!
