How to Fundraise!

Trick or Trot supports GSAFE's mission to create
Wisconsin K-12 school where LGBTQ+ youth thrive.
Please consider supporting that work!    

Be a Champion for GSAFE!!

Champions support GSAFE's mission by collecting  online donations from friends, classmates, colleagues, and family members.  There is no set amount you have to raise, but we encourage everyone to set a goal of at least $250. 

Click the "Become a Fundraiser" link on the bar menu across the top of this page to set up your page and get started. You can fund raise as an individual or as part of a team. Registering as a team is a great opportunity for clubs, businesses, families, faith communities and sports teams to have fun while supporting the community. The more the scarier!
