Fundraising Resources

Create your personal fundraising page

As part of your registration process, you have already set up the basics of your fundraising page. There are a lot of great ways to customize your page to help connect with your supporters.

  • Create a photo gallery of each week’s successes. Maybe it’s photos of you and your furry walking partner, your kids, or both!
  • Add videos of your accomplishments using free programs such as YouTube.
  • Increase your fundraising goal. You can do this as often as you want.
  • Share your fundraising page through social media and your personal contacts.
  • Send personal notes of thanks to family and friends who have supported you.

How to ask for money

Remember that effective peer-to-peer fundraising is not just about asking for money; it’s about engaging people in a meaningful way, sharing your passion, and inspiring them to support a cause they care about. Be genuine, empathetic, and persistent, and your fundraising efforts are more likely to be successful.

  • Set a clear fundraising goal with a deadline
  • Use a compelling message
  • Use multiple channels (social media, phone calls, email, text)
  • Show your gratitude
  • Share stories and updates
  • Respect boundaries (not everyone will be able to help)
