Fundraising Tips

How to Raise $500 in a week

You can make a difference in the fight against cancer by raising money for cancer research and patient services at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Norris Cotton Cancer Center. Fundraising is simple! We've broken it down into several easy steps. All you need to do is set a personal goal and then go for it! Here's one way to look at raising $500 in a week:

 

Day Details Total
1 Sponsor yourself for $25 $25
2 Ask three family members for $25 ($75) $100
3 Ask five friends to donate $15 ($75) $175
4 Ask five co-workers to sponsor you for $10 ($50) $225
5 Email 15 friends to sponsor you for $10 ($150) $375
6 Ask your company for a $75 contribution ($75) $450
7 Ask two businesses you frequent for $25 ($50) $500!!

 

More Ideas


• Don't be afraid to ask! You're not going to dinner with this money - you're working to find a cure for cancer!

• Start early. Have fun with your fundraising efforts!

• Set a fundraising goal and let your potential sponsors know what that goal is.

• Write a personal letter; create a newsletter or press release; make in-person solicitations. If you write a letter, include a donation form and a self-addressed stamped return envelope.

• Ask for pledges from family members, friends, people at work, people nearby, people far away, people you do business with.

• Suggest a minimum gift amount or put down options ($100, $50, $25, other).

• Write a personal note of thanks to each of your sponsors. This will go a long way, especially when you approach them next year(!).

• All donations are tax deductible. The tax ID is  26-4812335.

• If you run in memory or honor of someone, say so—telling a personal story about someone with cancer is a way for people to relate to you and your cause.

• If you run in memory of someone, ask that person's friends and family for pledges.

• Ask your supporters about matching funds from their employers.

• Find out whether your own employer offers matching funds.

• Double your fun: Challenge a friend to run with you and raise her/his own pledges.
