Fundraising Tips

  • Share your story: when telling people about the event make sure to share why you believe in the cause.
  • Stay motivated: don’t take it personally if someone doesn’t want to donate as people support many causes and may not be able to support all of them. If someone says no to donating money, you could ask him or her to spread the word about the event or invite them to “like” the facebook page.
  • Stay in touch: send updates to your donors on how much you’ve raised and how much the event raised in total. Don’t forget to say thank you! A picture of you at the event is always a nice touch!
