‘Top Tips’

                      ...things to think about when setting up a fundraiser

  • Plan effectively:

    • How will you fundraise? What is your goal? Is it realistic?

    • What is your time frame?

    • What is your sponsorship target?

    • Where will you choose to fundraise?

    • How will you raise funds?

 

  • Set up a sponsorship page – Setting up a sponsorship page with Stewardship, Just Giving, or even Facebook can be a great way to enable your friends and family to hear about your fundraiser and is a simple tool to collect donations.

 

  • Tell your story – why are you fundraising for Caring For Life?

    • Write a message and use photos to tell your story

 

  • How will you tell people you are fundraising?

    • Use social media/email/posters

    • Tell people at work/in your church/in your school

    • Send invitations if putting on an event

    • Tell us at Caring For Life and we can advertise your event in our monthly bulletin

 

  • Keep people updated

    • Post on social media/sponsorship page/email people and let them know how you are getting on either preparing for your fundraiser or even how the fundraiser itself is going.

    • Post pictures or videos

    • If you are doing a run or walk, why not connect Strava to your sponsorship page which will keep people updated on how the training/fundraiser is going

  • Keep your fundraising page open after your event has taken place. A lot of donations can come in even after you have finished your event.

 

  • Say thank you - Make sure to thank all those who have donated towards your fundraiser and let them know the final total.

 

 

 

Colossians 3:17

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him
