Make Your Fundraising Stand Out!

Posted by Volunteers

Fundraising gives you the opportunity to be creative and unique! While asking your friends and family to donate to your March for Babies campaign, it’s great to keep things fresh and exciting. Here are a few fun ways to make your fundraising stand out!

Add incentives! Motivate your friends by promising creative goods or service in exchange for their donation. Trade exercise for funds. Offer to do 10 push-ups or sit-ups for every $1 donated. Carry a friend’s books for an entire day in exchange for a $10 donation.

Post baby photos! They can be March of Dimes related or your personal baby photos! Anything that can make your posts and e-mails more eye catching is great.

Promote your goal! People like to be able to help you get there. Don’t be afraid to increase your goal as you reach your first, second, or even third fundraising goal.

Add a personal touch to your letters!

Grab their attention! Use the animated E-Cards, banners, and the Facebook application to help get attention! All of these and more can be found at

Our family team held a car wash this year. We also held raffle drawings and gave away free “goodie bags” to our customers. It was a huge success and we plan on doing it again in the future.
