Putting the “FUN” into FUNdraising!
Back to the basics:
E-mail works! Send an e-mail to 25 of your closest friends and family, suggesting a $50 donation. Even if only half of them donate, you’ve raised $600! (This packet includes a sample solicitation e-mail)
Use social media in the weeks leading up to The Monarch Walk, post regularly about your fundraising efforts (what your goal is, and what you’ve raised so far) and request that people help you achieve your goal. Event hashtag: #walkthiswayRGA
Do you work for a company that participates in a matching gift program? Ask them to match what you raise for The Monarch Walk!
