Fundraising Tips

1. Upload a photo to your page

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.

2. Tell your story

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.

3. Regularly post updates on your fundraising page

Keep your donors, sponsors and potential donors updated with your fundraising progress.

4. If you hit your target, increase it!

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.

5. Thank your donors

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.

6. Share your fundraising page

Don’t be shy! Share your fundraising page on your social media platforms and spread the word.

7. Ask again

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.
