5 Tips To Fundraising $5,000 For The Cause
1. Embrace social media.
Facebook is not just for stalking your ex. Post a few creative words to your page, and someone will notice. An added bonus? Don’t underestimate the effect of a powerful photo. People want to see the vulnerable side of your journey — it’s the most inspiring part about it.
2. Love The Bars
Seriously, nothing attracts dollars more than guaranteed alcohol and raffle tickets. Bars love to help out a local cause, so plan a pub crawl, set a price and see who is willing to throw in a few free brews with the entry fee.
3. Go Old School
Write a letter to your favorite peeps. People secretly love snail mail — the more personal, the better.
4. Set Realistic Milestones
Don’t announce the total you need to raise in the next six months. Announce you want to raise a tenth of that amount by the end of the week. People will rally and make it rain.
5. Get Corporate
I bet you didn’t know your best friend’s company does matching donations. What’s better than turning $500 into $1,000?
Donate to yourself — it will get the ball rolling and set an “average donation” standard.
