Smash your fundraising targets with these simple but effective fundraising tips and help make a real difference for people living with brain cancer.
People really do want to to see who they’re supporting, so make sure there’s a picture on your profile. Fundraising pages with pictures attract three times more donations and get almost five times the traffic.
Let supporters know why you’re walking and who you’re walking for. They really do want to know, so share your story and reason for walking. They may even join you.
Keep your donors, sponsors and potential donors updated with your fundraising progress.
Host a BBQ lunch or morning tea at work; raffle off a donated prize; hold a mufti-day at school.
If you hit your target, or you’re less than $100 away from reaching it – increase it! If people see you are close to meeting your target they may not donate the $200 they were going to if you are only $75 off your goal.
Let your sponsors know their donation has been noticed and appreciated. There is an option to comment individually on every donation, which makes thanking people simple.
Don’t be shy! Share your fundraising page on your social media platforms and spread the word.
People often need reminding the closer you get to the date of your walk, if you asked them once and they haven’t donated – ask again, they may have just forgotten and won’t begrudge a friendly reminder and an update of your progress.
