Want to become a VRC fundraiser?: Click on Become a Fundraiser to create your own page to gain donations in support of our fundraising efforts. On that page, you can join a team to help them reach their goals or start your own team and invite your friends to become fundraisers and join your team, or be a dynamic team of one. Only fundraisers who join a dance team help dancers earn votes. Don't worry, they won't make you dance if you join their team. All fundraisers are requested to follow these guidelines and your participation signifies your understanding and consent.

All donations from all of our fundraiser and team pages assist Veterans Resource Centers of America in supporting our veterans. Thank you for your support. Questions?: [email protected]
