How to reach your fundraising goal

Donate to yourself

Set an example for your supporters and make the first donation to your page – that way people will be more likely to follow your lead!

More heads are better than one

If you’re part of a team, get together for a fundraising brainstorming session – ideas can be as simple as organising a lunchtime sausage sizzle, sell cupcakes at your work or school, hold a quiz or movie night. The options really are endless!

Have an action plan

Just like your training schedule, it really helps to plan your fundraising. Dedicate some time each week to fundraising. The key is to start early and maintain your momentum. You will be surprised who will donate if you simply ask!

Promote your online fundraising page

Your fundraising page is your number one resource and your team’s page will be the hub of your fundraising activity. Encourage your supporters to donate online – it’s fast and easy and they can also leave a personalised message. You’ll soon get hooked watching your fundraising total go up and comparing it to everyone else’s!

Some good places to share your fundraising page link:

  • In your work/personal email signature
  • In Facebook & Instagram posts
  • If you’re at University, initiate a fundraising challenge with other halls of residence

Don’t forget to share your training and fundraising pics on social media using the official event hashtag #stadiumclimb!
