SO YOU’VE SIGNED UP TO FUNDRAISE – NOW WHAT?

You’ve signed up as a participant in a peer-to-peer fundraising event, taking the very first step to support a cause you love. Now it’s time to spread the word and ask for support, but where should you begin?

 

Whether you’re participating in a run, walk, bowl-a-thon or something else, on a team or individually, there are many things you can do to inspire people to donate to your campaign and help you reach your fundraising goal.

If you’re just getting started, there can be a lot to learn, but it’s easy and fun!

The first few days of joining a peer-to-peer fundraising campaign are key. Starting your fundraiser early maximizes the time that potential donors have to donate and allows you room to experiment, work through any learning curves, and seek fundraising help from the charity if you run into any roadblocks.

Make sure you hit the ground running by taking some time to review the following fundraising tips and best practices that have been shown to make a difference. The more of them you try, the higher your chances of succeeding. We’re counting on you!
