  • Tips for Fundraising Success
    After you’ve started your fundraiser and personalized it with pics, video, and a compelling story, email your page’s link to everyone you know. If you ask people to support you, they will. Ask twice if you have to. Be relentless in making your miles count.

    Email is the most effective way to spread the word, but definitely share your cause through all your social networks too. Use the ‘Manage Campaign’ tab to thank your donors and keep your supporters excited.

    When you’re ready to start raising money for your cause, be the first to make a donation to your cause. When your friends see that you’ve donated, they’ll be compelled to give too.
