Now that you’ve set a goal, it’s time to create your fundraising campaign. Will you run a 5k, email all your friends and family, or organize a weekly coffee stand at your school to help reach your goal? Here are a few tips to get the ball rolling:
- Think about your talents and interests: You could fundraise by putting together a dance performance, or ask friends and family to pledge a dollar for every goal you score at soccer games this year. Love baking? Put together a cookie sale at a game day or a community center.
- Consider your community: What type of event would your community enjoy? A themed event? A non-dress code day at your school? Try to brainstorm an event specific to your local community.
- Check out our inspiration page: There are unlimited options for fundraisers, so let that creativity fly!
All your fundraising doesn’t have to occur through one event or strategy. Many Impact Ambassadors will run a few different types of fundraising initiatives in order to reach as many donors as possible. You can raise funds through a variety of different events and strategies, rather than all at once.
