Fundraise



As we get closer to the 2014 Race for the Cure on March 30th, fundraising is a hot topic!  

    

Here are some great fundraising ideas to try:

  1. People connect to personal stories. Why do you participate in Race for the Cure? What is your experience with breast cancer - yourself, a friend, family member? Create a short 3 sentence or so story to share.
  2. Create ‘coupon tickets’ and distribute them among your co-workers for a $15 donation.
  3. Utilize social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. These sites make it easy to ask for donations and allow you to keep others updated on your progress.
  4. Visit the businesses you support and ask for donations. Create a handout describing your cause as well as what kind of donations you are seeking (cash, items, services, etc.).
  5. Highlight the benefit of tax deduction for charitable donations.
  6. Submit fundraising match requests (if the company offers donation matching).
  7. Don't forget to thank everyone who donates to your cause!
  8. Create an on-line memorial and request donations in their memory.
