Fundraising Tips

  • Set a goal! Shoot for a particular dollar amount, one of the incentives, to be the top fundraiser — whatever motivates you!
  • Create a personal fundraising webpage by visiting Post pictures, share on social media, send emails and invite your friends and family to support your effort! Tracking your donations online allows you to watch as your efforts get us closer to our goal of raising $150,000 to support local cancer care.
  • Start with a donation to yourself! This is a strong demonstration to anyone you ask that this cause is important to you.
  • Make a list of friends, family or business associates and plan on how you will tackle your list. For example, plan to call three to five people per day, or send a note to each one and follow up in a week.
  • Be sure to actually ask! Many people tell their friends and family they’re participating in a fundraising walk and expect them to offer to donate. Though people often may not offer, they generally will donate if you ask — especially if you share your "why" (your story of why you are fundraising).
  • Remember: You are not asking for money for yourself; you are asking for support for thousands of patients right here in our community! Every dollar makes a difference in the lives of our cancer patients and the community that surrounds them.
