Here are 3 suggestions to help you in increasing fundraising!
1. The easy steps to online fundraising!
Once you’ve registered for the event and joined Team Red Door, it’s easy to ask friends and family to sponsor you.
You can start sending emails simply by going to the top tab Fundraising and clicking on the Get Sponsors link located
in the left side bar.
You will receive an email notification when someone sponsors you. You can then log back into the system to send
them a thank you email!
2. Who benefits when you register online?
You (the Participant) benefit because you won’t need to collect any cash. You can use email to ask your friends,
family and colleagues for support, anywhere, any time of the day. And we can stay in touch by email to keep you upto-date with event information. You can even leverage the online social networks that are available.
Friends and Family can support you by simply clicking on the link you email them and using any major credit card. It
makes collecting donations from people near and far simple; they’re just a click away!
The Red Door Family Shelter benefits by being able to keep track of fundraisers more easily. Issuing tax receipts
online helps save costs and precious resources. The online system also enables easy tracking to streamline the
administrative efforts!
3. Motivational fundraising tips
1. Just ask:
Some of the anxiety around fundraising is about asking for money. Using the online system you can easily ask
friends and family, near and far by email and through online social networks, and you don’t risk any
embarrassment because it is all done over the Internet. No face to face asking!
2. Everyone is a potential donor:
Get into the habit of asking for a donation! You’d be surprised, but if you ask, people are more than willing to give!
You can even ask for sponsors in lieu of gifts for birthdays and holidays. Start with the people you know and feel
comfortable around. (Your warm contacts.) This will guarantee you some sponsors as well as boost your
confidence. Ask your family, friends, neighbours, and co-workers. Try adding your personal page link into your
email signature, and let people know why you are fundraising!
3. Update your online Personal Page:
It’s a great opportunity to share your story. You can update your personal page with your own picture and
message to let everyone know you are fundraising. You’d be surprised, but you will find that your friends,
neighbours, and co-workers may also have their own stories to share.
4. Set a personal goal:
Set a clear personal goal and a time frame for achieving your target. Consider the amount of money you want to
raise. Can you help the Red Door raise $100, $200, $500, $1000 or even more? Try sponsoring yourself to kickstart your campaign.
