We are now three weeks away from the Power Walk for Dress for Success 2012! We know that you’re all excited to raise money for a worthy cause and we’d like to share a few tips on how to maximise your fundraising.
1. Start now. The more time you give yourself to fundraise, the more you’ll be able to collect. Give donors time to consider the positive impact that they can make in the lives of disadvantaged women, and they’ll surely donate generously.
2. Set a fundraising goal for yourself and write it down. By having your target on paper, you’ll hold yourself accountable to raising your set amount. Make a timeline on how much you would like to raise by what dates so that reaching your goal is manageable.
3. Make a list of potential donors. Reach out to friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, and anyone else who you think could help out. If you participated last year, previous donors are a great place to start because you already know that they’re invested in the cause. Remember, the number one reason that people don’t donate is that they haven’t been asked!
We believe that each one of you can meet and even exceed your personal and team fundraising goals. Through your efforts, we can help Dress for Success empower women and make a positive impact in their lives!
