School Fundraising

You and your school can work together to offer hope for young people in our community that need it the most.

Your school community coming together to help homeless youth

You and your school can make a huge difference in the lives of homeless and at-risk youth by helping us provide them with love, hope and guidance, and by teaching them life-skills and offering compassionate support.

Through your school fundraising event, the funds you raise together will be put to work immediately, helping to meet the immediate needs of youth experiencing homelessness by providing food, clothing, a warm bed, and so much more.

Ways to get involved:

Sleep Out: Student Edition

Sleep Out is a great way to show secondary students a glimpse of what life would be like if they were homeless, by sleeping out for one night on school property without the comforts of home.

Host a Sleep Out and we’ll provide you with a personalized online fundraising page, an in-person presentation about Covenant House programs, an event planning guide, and ongoing support.

Students who participate will also receive 12 hours of community service which can be applied to their graduation requirements.

Casual/Pajama Day

Simply choose a date to host your Casual/Pajama Day and we’ll supply the stickers and posters. We can also come to your school and give a presentation about the programs Covenant House offers.

On the day of the event, students can wear their stickers and dress casual to show their support for homeless youth. The average donation to “Go Casual for Covenant House” is $3.
