 Click HERE or the image below to safely download participant flyers!

Download these flyers to share why you have joined the fight to stop suicide. There is space for you to add a photo, and form fields are highlighted with a gray background. The background will not print on your final document. If you are attempting to use an online printer and are experiencing any other printing issues, please click here for some helpful instructions. You can use these same instructions to “flatten” the PDF, which will make it non editable and suitable for sharing. If you need to convert the PDF to an image file for sharing online, you can learn how to do so here.

You can now fundraise for the Out of the Darkness Walks through Facebook, but your Facebook fundraiser must be started through your personal fundraiser portal in DonorDrive for donations to appear on your page. Simply visit your dashboard in the fundraiser portal, then click "Start a Facebook Fundraiser" from the Your Fundraising menu on the right side of the page. You can also view our Facebook Fundraiser FAQ here.


Important: If you start the Fundraiser on Facebook using the "add a donate button feature" or by launching a fundraising campaign such as a birthday fundraiser, donations will be sent to AFSP as general donations from Facebook and will not appear on your page. If you started your fundraiser through Facebook and would like your donations to appear on your walk page, please contact as soon as possible for further instructions.

NOTE - Connecting your FB Fundraiser to Instagram will NOT go to your page. DonorDrive does not have the ability to connect to Instagram fundraisers
