Inspiring Generosity and Meeting your Fundraising Goals

October 1, 2012 4:07 pm

Researching the best ways to meet fundraising goals can be an overwhelming process – there are an endless number of blogs and websites that give a variety of tips and tricks. At the end of the day, every fundraiser is different and must choose the “tricks” that work best in his or her situation.

The most important part of the whole process is to remember to stay in touch with your charity- in your case with Team Boomer. We are here for you to use as a tool and are happy to give suggestions whenever we can. Always keep us in mind – whether you are using us as a tool or explaining what we do to potential donors.

Remember to tell your story. Why are you fundraising, but more specifically, why Team Boomer? Make your cause extremely personal and explain the impact every single donation could have on the cystic fibrosis community.

Make your fundraising page as interesting and interactive as possible. Add photos, videos, updates… make your donors feel included in your journey! Whether you are training for a marathon or a 10K, your friends, family, and all other page visitors want to learn more about your story and feel included in your journey. Thank your donors and make them feel included!

A few other helpful tips…

  • Optimize matching gift programs
  • Dedicate certain body parts for sponsorship – You can have a ton of fun with this!
  • Honor different people on specific miles
  • Share on social media
  • Put your Fundraising page URL in your email signature
  • Get your Fundraising page featured in local press

Most importantly, always remember that you are making a real difference in people’s lives. Be proud of yourself and use your athlete’s mentality to meet your goals and inspire all those who hear about your journey.
