Check Out Our Fundraising Tips

We understand that asking someone for money can feel like a tricky thing to do, but with some practice you’ll be a pro in no time! Here are some tips to make your fundraising a little less stressful.

 
1. Let the world know what you are doing!
 

Start by telling everyone (your family, friends, teachers, coworkers, neighbours, etc) about your goal, what you plan to do, and why you are doing it. Online donations are eligible for a charitable donation receipt. (Cash, and cheque donations, too!)

2. Move it online. Go social! 

On-Line fundraising is most peoples “go to” for soliciting and donating. So go for it! Get social and post, tweet, and email your personal online donation link to everyone you can think of. You can never tell who will give you a donation and who won’t. Or how far your message may go. No harm in asking.

 
3. Get face to face.
 
There is no question that while it may feel easier to email or call, sometimes the most effective way to inspire someone to make a donation is to talk to them face to face. Also, Aunt Matilda (or Matti as she likes to be called) doesn’t exactly work her smartphone like your teenager does. You sometimes just can’t reach everyone electronically.
 
4. Educate yourself on the issues.
 
Get knowledgeable and passionate about the cause and explain your connection to it. Here are some powerful resources on arthritis in children. http://cassieandfriends.ca/resources/
 
5. Be creative.
 
This is where some people shine! Host an event like a bake sake, garage sale, sell friendship bracelets, hold a bottle drive – the possibilities are endless! Ask your employer if they will support you with events at work, have a donation matching program with SickKids, or perhaps they would like to become a Corporate VIP sponsor highlighting their commitment and Corporate Social Responsibility to such a worthy cause.
 
6. Never give up!
 

If someone says no, move along and ask someone else! Never be discouraged. You never know who will donate (or who won’t), but you are doing an amazing thing helping Children in a difficult circumstance.

Most of all remember that we appreciate all that you are doing to support the Art In Motion 10K and the Department of Rheumatology at SickKids.

We understand that asking someone for money can feel like a tricky thing to do, but with some practice you’ll be a pro in no time! Here are some tips to make your fundraising a little less stressful.
