Fundraising Tips

Organize Your Fundraising Campaign

  • During the registration process, your individual fundraising page will be created. This basic page is editable and automatically created for you. Feel free to make it yours, by changing the picture or by editing the story.
  • After registration is complete, you will receive an email that says; “Welcome, <Participant Name>! Ready to start fundraising?” Click on the ‘Visit your Page’ Button to access your page. This is where you will be able to make edits after signing in. If you have any problems making edits, please email [email protected] for assistance.
  • Once your page is just the way you want it, you can:
  • Set your personal fundraising goals and become your first donor!
  • Make a list of everyone you know. This will become your donors list.
  • Draft fundraising letter (sample below). When you are comfortable, send it to your list – this can be done directly from your fundraising page.
  • Come up with creative fundraising activities. Be enthusiastic and tell everyone you know that you are participating.
  • Forward your check donations to the foundation on an ongoing basis.
  • Send thank you notes to your donors!
