Fundraising tips!

Here are some top fundraising tips from Mark who topped the Ride for autism leaderboard last year raising over $6,000.
 

1 - Enthusiasm and Persistence

  • Be enthusiastic about promoting the cause and fundraising in general; your energy, passion and conviction will translate to donations.
     

2 - Reach as far and wide as possible

  • Utilising emails, social media, group messages and linking them back to the fundraising page is vital. 
  • Regularly updating your content, whether via the blog, social media, email, or text keeps it engaging for both people that have already donated and people who maybe considering doing so.
     

3 - Make it personal to you

  • It can often be difficult to stand out from other worthy fundraising initiatives that ultimately are competing to secure support.
  • Let your story, the reason for participating and connection to the cause do the talking!
