Fundraising Tips

How to get started with your fundraising:

  1. Set a goal. You’re more likely to be successful if you start by setting a goal to work toward.
  2. Start with a donation to yourself. Get the ball rolling by being the first to donate – it shows potential donors you are passionate about the cause!
  3. Share your story. Why are you participating in the event? People are more likely to donate to a cause they care about. You can share your story with us here – you might even be featured on our social media channels! Or, share your story on your own accounts.
  4. Ask for donations. You’ll be surprised how many people will want to support you when you ask! Post on social media asking your followers to donate by sharing a link to your fundraising page. Email and phone family and friends to let them know what you’re doing. Tell your story to local businesses in your area and ask for their support. You can use our toolkit to help you get started.
  5. Host online events. Get creative with physical distancing protocols and host an online fundraising event. Ask for an entrance fee by donation for game nights, movie nights, tournaments, or open mic nights.
