Supporter  Toolkit
Giving Tuesday 2023

Thank you for your support of TRUE Center!


TRUE Center launched therapy and educational services earlier this year and is raising money to ensure we can continue providing these critical services through next year.


These are some suggestions for how you might support our fundraising efforts this Giving Tuesday. Feel free to share this toolkit with others who might be interested in helping promote TRUE Center’s fundraising efforts! These are just a starting point — please feel free to make them your own!

Host a Mini Fundraising Drive

Having a Holiday party soon?

Consider asking participants to make a small donation to TRUE Center as part of the gathering.


Anything is appreciated, and no amount is too small. 

Peer-to-Peer Fundraising

Starting your own fundraising campaign is quick, simple, and it is one of the most effective ways for TRUE Center to boost donations. 

Social Media Fundraising:

Non-Monetary Donations


We are always looking for volunteers to help TRUE Center grow, including those with professional experience (e.g., marketing, legal)


Donating unused office space, therapy supplies, or electronic medical records licenses, would all support us in providing direct services to children and families.

Gift Matching

Check with your employer to see if they will match your donation to TRUE Center!

SUBJECT:  Join Me in Supporting TRUE Center This Giving Tuesday

Hi [Friends and Family],

I’m currently involved in a fundraising campaign to support TRUE Center for Giving Tuesday. The organization’s mission to increase access to affordable trauma-focused, evidence-based therapy, and prevention means a lot to me. I’m asking you to join me in becoming a monthly recurring donor this Giving Tuesday.


TRUE Center provides affordable, specialized, trauma-informed mental health services to children and families in the D.C. area. They also provide trauma-focused training and education to people in child- and family-serving professions. TRUE Center launched therapy and educational services earlier this year and is raising money to ensure they can continue providing these critical services through next year.


The goal of their current Giving Tuesday campaign is to gain 20 new monthly donors, and to reach a total fundraising goal of $6500. Reaching this goal would allow TRUE Center the opportunity to continue their therapy and education programs, both of which I see as essential programs for the D.C. area.


Here’s how you can help:

  1. Make a donation: Your support, especially as a monthly donor (no matter the amount), will make the difference. Donate here:

  2. Spread the word: Together, we can reach more people who share a passion for this work. See more ways to spread the word at:


Lastly, if you’d like, you can also read more about TRUE Center on their website:


Thank you so much for considering supporting this important cause!
