GiveChange

A Tool for Students

Did You Know Slavery Is Still A Problem?

But You Can Make a Difference!

Help GiveChange to millions of people by raising money to end slavery.

How It Works

  1. Get Creative and imagine how you will raise funds. Use one of our ideas or create your own!
  2. Share Your Idea with parents or teachers. If you will be raising funds at your school or church, get their permission (and ask them to join).
  3. Have an idea that involves others? Recruit your friends to join you.
  4. Set a Goal
    1. $30

      One aftercare package for a survivor of trafficking

    2. $200

      Critical medical attention for a survivor of violent abuse

    3. $465

      One year of primary school for a child survivor

    4. $6300

      One slavery rescue operation

  5. Rally People to give funds. Share about the reality of slavery and ask people to give to your fundraiser.
  6. Use your passion to raise money to end slavery!
  7. Celebrate! You are bringing freedom, restoration, and dignity to those living in slavery today. Make your donation to IJM and celebrate the impact you are making!

Here’s a few ideas from other students:

  • Everyone has loose change hanging around—under the sofa cushions, in your car, or in your desk drawer. Collect your loose change to give change!
  • Give your grade. In 7th grade? Ask friends and family to give $7.
  • Host a bake sale or lemonade stand in your neighborhood.
  • Give up sodas for a month and donate what you would have spent to rescue people from slavery.
  • What do you love? Get creative and use your passion to raise funds and end slavery!
  • On your birthday, instead of asking for gifts, donate to help end slavery.
  • Join a race and ask friends to donate $1 for every minute or mile you run.
  • Host a Battle of the Bands concert at your school or church youth group.
  • Turn your school musical into an awareness and fundraising event.
  • Love sports like volleyball or soccer? Host a benefit game. You might also invite teachers or alumni to participate.
  • Ride a bike trail. Raise awareness along the way and ask friends to join you or donate to IJM.
