Fundraising Tips

It can be difficult to ask your friends and family to support you and your team but there are lots of ways to create awareness and get support from your network.
The best advice we can give you is to make it personal. Tell everyone why you’re fundraising and what their dollars will be supporting. The people who donate to your initiative are typically supporting you as much as they’re supporting the cause. Give them a reason to help you get to your personal fundraising goal. 

How to Ask
Without a doubt, email is the single best way to spur your friends and family to donate to your team. We recommend sending personalized emails to each prospective donor and be sure to outline why you believe in the power of sport and supporting MLSE LaunchPad.

Utilize Social Media
Social media can also be an effective tool for rallying support and spreading awareness about The MLSE Team Up Challenge and MLSE LaunchPad. Post about your fundraising journey on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc. to keep your network involved in what you’re doing.
How to Say Thank You
Thanking donors is the most important part of the fundraising process! Ensure each donor to you or your team is properly thanked. We recommend sending a hand-written card or a personalized email update after the event to let them know how much money your team ended up fundraising and how your team ranked in the tournament. A simple thank you goes a long way!
Remember, the #1 reason why people don’t donate is because they were never asked to!
