TOOLS & TIPS
Ask, ask, ask!
Why don't some people give money? Because they’re never asked! Make a commitment to ask at least one person every day for a donation.
Utilize Social Media
Announce your participation on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram - any social media platform and include a link to your participant page. Share your goal and keep everyone posted on how you are doing and how far you need to go to reach your goal.
Invite past donors to renew their donation
Many donors give to the same charity year after year. Don’t be afraid to remind them that you’re participating again this year.
Keep the momentum
The earlier you start fundraising, the better. Always follow up with every person you’ve asked. And if they donated, don’t forget to thank them.
Make it real
If you’ve got a story, special memory or fantastic person you’re participating for, share it! It will motivate people to support your fundraising efforts.
Organize a pre-Trivia Challenge party and test your family and friends' trivia knowledge in exchange for donations! Involve your workplace and challenge your co-workers by placing a fundraising thermometer and spare-change jar on your desk. Every penny counts!
