Not quite sure how to raise funds for the Lowcountry Walk for Life? Check out our tips below!
1. Consider all the people who would like to help you reach your fundraising goal for the Lowcountry Walk for Life. Who are they? They could be your friends, family, teacher, coaches, church friends, co-workers, teammates, classmates, roommates… the list goes on and on!
2. Don’t be afraid to ask your friends and family to sponsor you in the LW4L. There are different ways to ask for their support–you may show them your Fundraising Form, or send them an email, facebook them, tweet them or mail them an old-fashioned snail-mail letter. Remember that every donation counts, even just $5 or $10 may help you reach your goal. We like to remind our donors that it takes approximately $1,000 to save the life of one baby whose mother is abortion-minded.
3. When people ask what you are collecting donations for, let them know that you are supporting the Lowcountry Pregnancy Center through the Lowcountry Walk for Life! Feel free to let them know about the many free services LPC provides to Lowcountry women–pregnancy tests, limited ultrasounds, pregnancy options, parenting classes, baby items and more. We also have a Fatherhood Program, post-abortion support, and onsite prenatal care provided by Seasons OB/GYN. Their donation allows us to continue providing these services.
4. Ask more than once! If you send an email and don’t hear anything, don’t be afraid to email them again after several weeks! Sometimes people forget or get busy, and they may have intentions to help you but simply forgot.
5. SOCIAL MEDIA is a great way to connect with potential sponsors. First, be sure to LIKE our Facebook Fan Page as well as follow us on Twitter @takeawalk4life. Share our website, facebook updates and tweets with your friends and family. With your online FundEasy account you can promote your own fundraising page and share that on Facebook. Don’t forget to email friends and family that are out of town but would still like to support the LW4L cause.
6. Get started early. It’s never too early to start helping save lives. Your efforts will make a difference!
