Personalizing your Fundraising Campaign
Your personal fundraising page will default to general text. We strongly recommend customizing the text on your page to reflect your own personal experience. Research shows that people are much more likely to respond to the person asking for donations rather than the cause. Here is your opportunity to tell people why we need to raise funds to fight this disease and how much it will mean to you.
Upload a Video
Creating a video is a great way to get-out-the-word about the urgent need for pancreatic cancer research, and a proven method to increase donations in support of your participation in a Walk/Run event.
Round up family and friends or, if you are a team, gather some members, and make a brief (1-3-minute) video sharing your story of why you have joined the fight against pancreatic cancer, and how family and friends can help you in your efforts to raise vital dollars for research.
Then, post your video to your personal fundraising page, and watch your fundraising results grow as viewers connect with your personal call to action and lend support to your cause.
Mail in your collected donations as you go.
The Lustgarten Foundation receives thousands of individual donations year-round from Walk/Run events taking place across the country. Our staff works diligently to process and post these donations to individual fundraising pages; however, your patience is greatly appreciated.
Due to the success of Walk/Run events, donations received on the day of an event may require up to 6-8 weeks to be reflected on personal fundraising pages.
