Asking for donations can be challenging, especially if this is your first fundraising event. But with a little practice and creativity, you can put the “fun” in fundraising!
Here are five tips to reach your fundraising goals:
- Fundraise with social
Update your status and let your friends know what you’re doing and what it means to you!
- Customize your
personal 5K page
Include a photo and story of why it’s important to you to participate in the Winship Win the Fight 5K. Email friends and family asking them to support your efforts with a donation.
- Host a party with a purpose
Hold a theme party for 10 (or more) of your friends. Ask each person for a $50 donation. Spend no more than $20 per person on the food, and you’ll have $300 or more by the end of the night.
- Dress-down day
Ask your company to allow an official Winship 5K Day. For the privilege of dressing down, employees donate $20 toward your team.
