80 Days to 80K Fundraising

Who says you can’t have fun while raising money??

The 80 Days to 80K fundraiser challenges you to embark on an awesome adventure AND create scholarships for young United Methodists to attend the 2018 Global Young People’s Convocation in Johannesburg, South Africa!


What is the Global Young People’s Convocation (GYPC)?

Every four years, nearly 350 young people from around the world come together for a time of worship, fellowship, leadership development, and conversations about pressing issues and challenges young people are facing. It is the most extensive global gathering of United Methodist young people. In July 16-22, 2018, young people from different social, economic, cultural, political, and even theological backgrounds will come together in Johannesburg, South Africa to share their stories with one another. Interested in donating money yourself? Click the big button to give!

 Any donation given to GYPC helps bring together the voices of young people from around the world, as all gifts are used as scholarships for those who could not attend without this support.

How can I join the 80 Days to 80k Fundraising Challenge?

To start—think of something you’d love to do. Have you ever wanted to join a bike race or a local 5k? Have you ever thought about dancing all day long? Have you ever created a piece of art through a live stream on social media? Have you ever wished for a prayer partner from another part of the world? During the 80 Days to 80K, turn something fun into a fundraiser by setting a goal for your friends, family, and community to sponsor. If you need some inspiration, check out the 80 Ways to Fundraise sheet for ideas. Although it’s not required, you are encouraged to incorporate the number 80 into your goal, such as committing to skateboarding for 80 kilometers or seeking to receive 80 donations. However, you do NOT need to raise funds for the entire 80 days—you can set your goal for any amount of time within the 80 days from now until October 14th.

Once you’ve set your goal, sign up using the form below. We’ll send you an email with all of the details you need to get your fundraiser up and running!
