Plan a fundraiser

We are fortunate to receive regular inquiries from individuals and groups that want to support Pathways. Please review the following guidelines to ensure that your event fulfills the goals and objectives of our organization.

Basic guidelines

  • The planning of a third party fundraiser is the responsibility of the hosting person or organization; Pathways will not advance funds, provide contact lists, solicit sponsorship revenue, provide staff support, or produce materials for the event.

  • Our ability to provide services for your event is limited by staff size and internal fundraising obligations.

  • Pathway retains the right to decline support from individuals or organizations that do not align with our mission and values.

  • Use of the Pathways logo MUST be approved before printing and/or publication.

  • Any party who organizes a fundraising event on behalf of Pathways is solely responsible for obtaining any necessary permits, clearances, and liability insurance that is required by the state or government. Pathways cannot be held responsible for any details directly or indirectly related to the event.

  • Unfortunately, we do not allow fundraisers to take place at the Philadelphia Furniture Bank or at the Pathways to Housing PA office.


You can view the entire Fundraising Event Guide here. We also have a guide to hosting a house party specifically, which can be found here.


If you'd like to host a fundraiser on behalf of Pathways, please complete the Fundraising Event Application and a member of our advancement team will contact you to review the details of your event.

Remember, fundraisers don't have to be only for money! We also regularly need physical items, and you can host a collection drive on our behalf. 

Donate New Household or Food Items

There are items we use everyday to help meet the needs of the people that we serve – especially when we move them off of the streets and into a permanent home of their own. We currently need both Pantry Items and Household Items. Items can be shipped to or dropped off at our offices: 5201 Old York Road, Suite 108, Philadelphia, PA 19141. We are sorry, but we do not currently have the capacity to pick up donations.

You can now shop online safely and securely by using our Amazon Wish List and your gift will immediately be sent directly to our office. If you would like a tax receipt for your donation, please use the note section when checking out to list your name and contact information.
