Fundraising Tips

  • Personalize your donation page. Add a photo or story about why you are fundraising.
  • Reach out to your contacts through social media. Ask your friends and family to support your fundraising efforts.
  • Don't forget to hand out your postcards! Ask as many people as you can to support you – family, friends, neighbours, co-workers, etc. The more you ask, the more you get.
  • Decorate your office, store or school with paper bed tributes of your supporters. The more you let people know what you're doing, the more likely they are to support you.
  • Ask various companies or suppliers to support your team. You can let them know that donations of  $1,000+ will receive recognition on two large digital screens at the event.
  • Host a bake sale. They're easy to organize and they can raise a surprising amount.
  • Add a link on your home or work e-signature to your fundraising page.
  • Put a donation collection box at your desk and ask co-workers to donate their coffee money.

Happy fundraising!
