Click "DONOR THANK YOU TEMPLATES" to send your thanks. Please feel free to make any necessary changes to the email templates.
Are there graphics I can post with my campaign?
Yes! Sharing photos with your ask through social media, text messages or emails is a great way to maximize engagement. You can use the pre-made graphics or feel free to make your own.
What programs should I highlight when talking with potential supporters?
Any quick tips?
Yes! Here are a few:
1. Create a list of potential donors. There are many people in our lives but some may be more willing to support this cause than others. Take 20 minutes to compile a list of close family members, friends, and colleagues who you know will support you and your efforts to do good in the world.
2. Continue to share why you are supporting this cause. While your network may see this as a great cause as well, they also really want to support you. Continue to share why you were moved to start a peer-to-peer fundraiser.
3. Post on social media. Yes, emailing and text messaging can garner responses from specific people, but social media may reach others who you did not originally think about.
4. Update past donors of your progress. Those who support your campaign love to receive updates on how things are going and may even donate again to help you reach your goal. Log-in to your campaign and click "SEND PROJECT UPDATES" in the toolbar at the top of your window to notify your past donors of your progress.
