Fundraising

What is the best way to start my fundraising?

Below are our top 3 tips to get your fundraising dial off zero: 

  1. Your online fundraising page is the most simple and effective way to kick start your fundraising. Update your page with your profile image, a story about why you are fundraising and share directly from your page to kick start those dollars coming in. 
  2. Make a personal donation to your fundraising page. This can help set the tone for your supporters and show your commitment to your experience.  
  3. Download our fundraising guide that includes tips and tricks for planning events, auctions and raffles to help you raise your funds.
