Creative fundraising ideas can come in many forms.

The story of our Funds2Orgs business developed through the years. It started with a single shoe that washed ashore after the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. At the time, Wayne Elsey, Founder, was the president of an international shoe manufacturing company.

Wayne went on to establish one of the largest nonprofits in the United States. And he accomplished what he did for those affected by the Indian Ocean tsunami again, and again. First for those affected by Hurricane Katrina and then for the earthquake in Haiti. He led efforts to ship over 20 million pairs of shoes to people and places hurt by natural disasters.

Funds2Orgs founder Wayne Elsey shares his creative fundraising ideas through shoe drive fundraisers.

Some people are simply not satisfied. That’s Wayne. He thought there was a way to help organizations raise money and make a global impact. He created Funds2Orgs with a team of dreamers who believe they could change the world.

Funds2Orgs is a for-profit social enterprise. The core of its business model is shoe drive fundraisers. The other components are providing an economic opportunity for workers in developing nations and helping the environment.
