You can begin fundraising as soon as your campaign is approved! Your campaign is flagged for approval in our system once your beneficiary information is entered, but we may call you before approving the campaign, particularly if your beneficiary information is for an individual and not an organization. All fundraising campaigns go through a manual approval process by the LCF Fundraising Team, so it is important to note that campaign approval only occurs during business hours.
Our fundraising season begins late in the summer (at the end of August or early September) when we are ready to begin taking orders. After this there is no date too late to start, just keep in mind campaigns end in mid December.
