Steppin’ Up Teams

Steppin’ Up Teams

Why Are Teams so Important to Steppin’ Up?

Did you know teams raise over 65% of all the money collected for Steppin’ Up to End Violence?

Each year, our event has grown, thanks in large part to TEAMS! As individuals come and experience the fun and meaning of Steppin’ Up, they are inspired to come back and bring some friends! New teams form, returning teams strengthen, and participation increases.

Take the Survey

Hey Team Leaders: Take our survey and help us improve Steppin’ Up. We appeciate your help!

Teams Can be Any Size! 

It is the heart and the spirit and not the size that makes our teams stand out. Invite a few friends to join you; ask your co-workers to join an office team; encourage your child’s school to create a team of students, parents and teachers; ask your faith community if their mission or outreach committee can support this event; or have a combined family and friends team. We want to make the process of leading a team as easy and fun as we can.

We are here to help!

Friendly Competition! 

Does your business or company have departments or branches? Challenge each other to see who can recruit the most team members or raise the most money. Consider taking your fundraising to the next level by challenging another business to see who can win bragging rights as top fundraiser. 

What is Involved in Being a Team Leader? 

​Team Leaders play a critical role in the success of Steppin’ Up. Your enthusiasm for helping TPN and leading a team are what make it all come together. We will provide the details and information; you provide the heart! TPN is here to support you and provide the information you need to make this a fun experience. You decide how much time you have to devote to being a team leader. We think it’s an amazing event and we are delighted others think so, too.

Forms and Materials

Click the button below to find the forms you need, or call TPN to pick up the Steppin’ Up Team Leader Packet. The packet has all the forms you and your teammates need: brochures, pledge forms, creative fundraising ideas, etc.

How Does a Team Raise Money?

In addition to collecting pledges from family, friends and co-workers, you can utilize our free online fundraising tool, JustGiving. It’s a fast and easy way to let others know you are helping Turning Points Network. Follow the easy steps to create your own page and then email that link to your contacts near and far; it’s a great tool to share on social media. Participants report a huge jump in fundraising when they use this tool!

If you would prefer to raise money offline, make sure to document who gave you each amount for your own records. You may send money raised to TPN at any time before the event, but there will also be specific collection times in the week leading up to the event, so check back for more details.

Compassionate Corporate Match Opportunity

Increase your team’s fundraising power—check with your business or organization to see if they offer corporate match giving. Check the Forms & Documents page to download this form.

Help Create a Violence-Free Future

Our hope is that you will support victims and survivors by joining our growing list of supporters and becoming a friend of our organization.
