How to Host a Fundraiser or Drive for Venice Family Clinic

Thank you for your interest in supporting Venice Family Clinic! There are a variety of ways to give back to the Clinic. Please use the tools listed below and choose the program that would work best for you!

Fundraising Tips:

  • Be sure to let your friends and family know about your fundraising efforts beforehand so they can prepare in advance.
  • Be familiar with the Clinic’s services and impact on the community so you can effectively communicate this to your donors.
  • Consider tying your fundraising efforts to a specific VFC event or program such as Venice Family Clinic’s Venice Art Walk (May) or the Children’s Holiday Movie (December), which specifically benefits our pediatric programs.

Feel free to reach out to us should you have any questions or would like additional support such as flyers. Once you have collected your donations, please contact us at VFCvolunteer@mednet.ucla.edu for further instructions.


The Lemonade Brigade

This is a great opportunity to involve people of all ages in a fundraiser for Venice Family Clinic. In the past, Clinic supporters and their children have set up lemonade stands in their neighborhood, school functions, and other community events in order to raise money for Venice Family Clinic.

What you will need:

Don’t forget that any treat can be sold for donations. Think about who your audience is and perhaps consider offering rice krispie treats, cupcakes, or anything else you think might help support our cause!
