Tips for Spreading the Word and Maximizing Donations

Lead by Example: Make a donation to your team or personal page. Others are more inclined to give when they see that you are dedicated to the cause.

Get personal: Add a photo and share your story. Why are you raising funds for The Food Bank? By telling your personal story, friends and family feel more connected to the cause.

Send emails & make donating easy: Introduce your fundraising efforts to your colleagues, family and friends through an email. Invite recipients to donate to your team or personal page using a direct link to your page.

Get social: Did you know that fundraisers raise 40% more when they make use of social media? Let your friends and followers know that you are raising money, and share why food security is important to you. Remember we’re @FoodBankWatReg on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube and Instagram.

Follow up: It takes on average 3 asks to result in one gift so be sure to follow up! Once you have received a donation, don’t forget to thank your donor!
