How I Fundraise: Making Headway Foundation


We spoke with Catherine Lepone, the Executive Director for the Making Headway Foundation about her fundraising endeavors. The Making Headway Foundation, established in 1996, provides families with care, comfort, and a cure for children with brain or spinal cord tumors.

The organization does multiple fundraising events every year using Greater Giving, including walk-a-thons, peer-to-peer, golf tournaments, and dinners. Catherine tells us about how using Greater Giving auction software solutions for their 2012 gala helped them raise over $1M.


“I was able to learn the Greater Giving system quickly. It is very straight forward, easy to use, and I am able to track everything. Receipts can all be customized.”
