Become a BayRaiser! Create your own web page to raise funds for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.

Have you ever asked friends to make donations to a favorite charity in lieu of a wrapped gift? Are you looking for a creative way to help save the Bay? It's easy with the BayRaiser program!

Choose from several different templates that are perfect for any occasion!

Here are a few suggested events or occasions for which you can create a BayRaiser fundraising page:

  • Family celebrations and personal milestones (e.g. weddings, graduations, birthdays, bar mitzvahs, housewarming, etc.).
  • Events in which you are already participating (e.g. triathlons, marathons, motorcycle rides, kayaking races, etc,).
  • Remembering a loved one with a special memorial web page.
  • Starting a simple fundraising effort among friends, colleagues or classmates.

All donations to your BayRaiser page are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
