Fundraising 101: You've Got This!
Your friends, family and work colleagues want you to do awesome things... and raising funds for young people with physical disabilities is awesome! While fundraising might seem a little scary at first, it's easy with the right tips & resources. Below are some helpful tips and resources to help you smash your fundraising goals.
Jazz up your page and include photo’s and details on what you’re undertaking for Youngcare. This shows your potential donors why you care and how their support will be making a difference in young people’s lives.
Lead the way and add a donation to yourself first to show your commitment as well as encouraging others to support you!
Make a promise to your donors, if you reach a certain fundraising target you’ll… go without coffee, run an extra 10km, or anything else that might motivate your supporters to give more – plus it’s a great way to incentivise your donors and keep them connected with your challenge!
Connect your fundraising page to your social media and update all your friends and family on your progress. Use our resources above to help spread the word!
Update your email signature with our personalized email signatures. Email everyone you know and tell them what you’re planning and how they can support you!
Ask your workplace if they are able to help support by matching every dollar you raise
Either in person, or virtual, a fundraising event is a great fun way of raising funds and awareness. Think a bake sale, car wash, zoom trivia night, work morning tea, or in lieu of a birthday or celebration, ask your friends and family to donate to your page!
You don’t have to be in Brissie to Bolt for change. This year, no matter where you are, you can be bold and BOLT!
