Fundraising Tips for Power Walkers!

The Dress for Success 2013 Power Walk is only a month away! We know you are all getting excited for the walk and we wanted to share a few tips on how to maximize your fundraising.

  • Start now if you haven’t already! It’s best to let everyone know why you have committed to Dress for Success and the impact that the organization has on our community. You can let people know that Dress for Success Vancouver successfully helped over 2100 women in 2012!
  • Set an individual or team fundraising goal and write it down. By writing your target on paper, you’ll hold yourself accountable to raising your set amount. You can then make a timeline on how much you would like to raise by what dates so that reaching your goal is attainable.
  • Use internet marketing and social media to recruit teammates and raise funds. Sending out a group email can be an effective way to reach out to your network and encourage people to donate. Utilizing social media channels like Facebook and Twitter can also be a great way to raise money. You can use our Facebook cover photo to help create awareness for the Power Walk, which can be found on our Dress for Success Vancouver Facebook page. It’s also very important to tweet and update your Facebook status letting people know that you are fundraising for a great cause!
  • Get people from work involved! Starting a team at work can help you and other employees meet corporate responsibility goals for an incredible local cause. You can then create a work display or plan a lunch event to spread the word within the workplace and raise money to reach your fundraising goals.

We know that each one of you can meet and even exceed your personal and team fundraising goals! Through all of your efforts, we can help Dress for Success empower women in Vancouver and make a positive impact in their lives!

We can’t wait to see you all at Oakridge on May 11th for the 2013 Power Walk!
