Sometimes when you’re fundraising you might get in a rut and feel like you’ve already asked all of your friends to donate to your event!
To help boost your fundraising efforts, we’ve compiled a list of 10 people you should ask to support you.
Think about it this way: if each person gives you just $10, you will have raised $100!
- Extended Family Members – you have probably already asked your grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles; but what about your second-cousins or your in-laws? It never hurts to try!
- Doctor/Dentist – in for your yearly check up? Don’t forget to mention your fundraising efforts!
- Neighbors – pass out flyers in your neighborhood, collect cans or coins from your neighbors, or host a garage sale. These are great ways to get your neighbors involved with your Team Roswell fundraising.
- Co-Workers – a great way to keep your co-workers engaged is to add the Team Roswell logo and your personal fundraising link to your email signature. When you do this, your co-workers will be reminded of your efforts every time you send an email.
- PTA Members – extend your fundraising network to your school PTA. Go even further, and get your local school involved! Host a popcorn day or bake sale with the proceeds to benefit Team Roswell.
- Sports Team Members – ask for your team members’ support on and off the field!
- Church/Religious Organization Members – post about your fundraising efforts on your church/organization bulletin or ask to be featured in the weekly newsletter.
- Your Friends’ Friends! – encourage your close friends to share your fundraising efforts with their friends. Whether they share on Facebook or send an email, it is important to expand your network. You never know who may donate!
- Teachers, Professors or Classmates – reach out to your teacher or professor and ask them to save 5 minutes at the end of class for you to present to your peers about your fundraising efforts.
- Your Favorite Local Business – ask your favorite local business to contribute to your Team Roswell fundraising by hanging up a flyer, putting out a donation jar or by sponsoring your initiative.
Remember, it’s okay to ask potential donors multiple times for a donation. Life can get in the way sometimes, and most donors will appreciate the reminder!
