I don't agree with poster#2..I am guessing that you have a personal reason for wanting to raise funds for this cause ?
There are many ways to do it, just be persistant. I have worked with several organizations in terms of fund raising , without support of a group effort, except my children.
You might run into some stumbling blocks, but don't let it slow you down..some of our work wasn't about raising funds, but much needed supplies to various causes.
If you are doing it just for the purpose of looking good on apps, that can be transparent.
Just my 2cents
