Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

What does the event raise money for?

Every dollar raised for TPN goes towards providing essential services for survivors of domestic and sexual violence and stalking–every dollar counts! TPN’s services are all free, and with cuts in funding over the last several years, TPN must do a tremendous amount of fundraising to KEEP those services free. Steppin’ Up is our largest fundraiser of the year, raising critical funds for both our emergency shelter and prevention education programs for local schools. Download our event brochure.

No there is no registration fee or fundraising minimum. TPN is grateful for every contribution. Every dollar raised goes directly towards helping TPN continue its life-changing work of supporting those affected by domestic and sexual violence and stalking. You can sponsor yourself at any amount or gather pledges.

No, you can fundraise as an individual or group and not be a team. Individuals or group members can sponsor themselves at any amount or gather pledges. We welcome all participants!

Team Leaders are individuals who invite friends, co-workers and family to join them in “Steppin’ Up.” Teams can be any size and teams set their own fundraising goals. Team Leaders decide how involved they want to be in organizing a team. Some teams plan a group fundraiser or decide to participate in contests. There is an optional Team Leader form for your use if it is helpful. You will not need to turn in this form to TPN unless you have team members competing for a TOP FUNDRAISER prize.

TPN is so grateful to every Team Leader for energizing others to raise funds and awareness.
