After August 28th, 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 contact 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 the last Monday in August. After this there is no date too late to start, just keep in mind campaigns end the second Sunday in December.
