Finding a formula for fundraising

Posted by Linda

Having a hard time figuring out how you’re going to reach your fundraising goal? Try creating a formula of support from family, friends, colleagues, and acquaintances. Say your goal is $250 – consider something like this:

Start by making your own $25 donation. Then, ask: three friends for $25; two family members for $20; four colleagues for $15; a neighbor for $10; your doctor for $25; and, a local merchant for $15. Add it up and you’ve reached $250.

And don’t forget to ask your donors if their company offers matching gifts – you might be able to double your donations.

I just need clarification. I am asking people to just donate money up front and it has nothing to do with getting a certain amount of money per each lap I walk since its 3 miles?

Hi Nicole – generally, people give a donation in honor of you completing the walk; not pledges or donations made per lap.
