Take a stand for invertebrates

Starting a fundraiser for Xerces is one of the best ways to increase awareness and support for invertebrates. With a little creativity, any event can become a way to raise funds for invertebrates and their habitat. Together, we can make a big difference for the little creatures that run the world.

Please reach out at any time with questions to engagement@xerces.org

During the month of December, we are hosting a fundraising challenge. Raise $100 to earn 1 prize, and raise $200 to earn 2 prizes. The top fundraiser will receive a special shout-out on our social media platforms.

Prizes include a Xerces hat, a Xerces tote bag and the book titles in our gift center.

Prizes will be distributed in January 2024.
