What does Wind Youth Services provide for a fundraiser?
We promote your fundraiser to our database of supporters via our e-newsletters and social media.
We provide e-mail messages that you may send to your mailing list encouraging their participation or you provide your contacts and we will e-mail them on your behalf.
We know events aren’t always free. We know you may have rental, food or other costs. We offer to reimburse documented/substantiated costs you incur, up to 20% of the proceeds donated through your event page or checks mailed to Wind. Should you forego the reimbursement, we will use that money toward Wind services, and provide you with a donation letter for tax purposes.
We provide Wind-branded swag for your participants on request. We provide a Wind-branded banner for your facility. We can also provide fundraising incentives for participants who reach donation levels.
We will build and host on WindYouthServices.org an event and fundraising page for your fundraiser. You promote the web page to generate fundraising support. We will also send you a banner, swag, and other items to generate enthusiasm for your fundraiser. You should include #WindYouth Services in your social media tags.

Our Instagram handle is @WindYouthServices
Tax receipts are available to people at your event who make a personal donation to Wind. The donation must be made directly to Wind Youth Services.
We require the following information to properly process a tax receipt:
- Donor’s name
- Donor’s full mailing address
- Donor’s telephone number and/or e-mail address
- Amount of donation and payment type
Wind Youth Services can provide you with a generic template form for this purpose. Tax receipts cannot be processed by Wind until the event organizer sends the funds to our office. Processing tax receipts takes approximately two (2) weeks after the donation has been received at the Wind office.
