Raising money through inclusion in these events is easy. Maximising your fundraising just requires a little extra effort.
We’ll teach you how to get started with everydayhero. First, pick events you’re going to take part in. Then, read on for resources to help you with the next steps:
Recruit your team
Recruiting fundraisers is easy. Your supporters care about furthering your cause and want to know all the different ways they can get involved and support you. Recruit them as fundraisers by asking them to compete and raise money for you. Start your recruitment drive at least 8 weeks before the event.
Coach and encourage your fundraisers
Once you’ve recruited a team, the next step is to coach and encourage them to succeed. Regular contact from your organisation will keep them motivated and engaged. More engaged fundraisers = more funds raised. Start coaching and encouraging fundraisers from the moment they join your team. Continue right up to the start of the event.
Thank fundraisers and donors
Your team gave everything competing and fundraising for you. So thank them for their effort, energy and voice. Their time spent training and calories burned. And all the funds they raised for you. Make them feel good about supporting you and wanting to do it again. Thank their sponsors too. It’s your opportunity to tell them about your cause and engage them as new supporters. Acknowledge and thank your fundraisers and donors as soon as the event is over.
