BIA HOME : Give Detroit 2016

Give Detroit 2016


Starting this Friday, BIAMI will be participating in the Give Detroit Challenge 2016. This is a fundraising competition between Southeastern Michigan nonprofits and runs until November 10th. At the end of the competition, the top five fundraiser will receive extra money ranging from $5,000 - $20,000, with weekly challenges occurring throughout the competition that present more opportunities to gain extra money. Needless to say, this a great opportunity for BIAMI to raise much needed funds for our programs, as well as much needed awareness and identity in southeast Michigan.

In order for this to be a success, we need your help, but we are not asking you to donate.

Instead, we’re asking you to become fundraisers for us. We are asking for you to create a fundraiser profile on CrowdRise, the online fundraising platform Give Detroit is using, to reach out to your network of family, friends, and co-workers to raise money for us. You have the chance to share what your own unique personal story about makes BIAMI important to you and why you feel the community needs us. We have provided a FAQ’s sheet on Give Detroit 2016 that also contain some useful tips for setting up a fundraiser page. If you need some an example to look to, our Communications Associate Nathaniel Smith has a great fundraiser page you can use as a guide. If you have any further questions, please contact him at

Together, we can work together to raise money to support the brain injury survivor community here in Michigan while putting the Brain Injury Association of Michigan “back on the map” in metro Detroit!

(And, yes, if you wish to donate, we certainly won’t stop you from doing so!)
