Need Help? Discover Our Tips and Advice

Getting a fundraiser started may seem a little complicated at first, but it’s much easier than it sounds. Here are a few tips that can help you with your fundraising project:

  1. Explain why this project is important to you: Write a message to your close relatives to explain why you are involved in and what your goal is. This will motivate people to support your project by making a donation and sharing it.
  2. Lead by example: It’s best to make the first donation on your page yourself. This will also serve as a reference for your friends and family, so don’t hesitate to be generous!
  3. Share your project in two parts: Start by telling your family and friends about your fundraising plans. It is your close circle that will be the easiest to solicit at first. Once you have raised significant funds, expand your target by reaching out to your co-workers and other contacts. Prepare personalized emails to better engage the people you contact. Don’t be shy –  you are doing a good thing!
  4. Exploit the power of social media: Post your fundraiser several times, to encourage your contacts to contribute to your project, but also to thank those who have already donated by tagging them and inviting them to share your publication. This can create a real snowball effect and increase your fundraising.
  5. Thank your donors and keep them informed: Keep your supporters informed and thank them as your project evolves. When the fundraiser is over, take the time to write a thank-you email to them and share your results.
