Here are are a few tips that can help you “fund-raise” for this or any other event you are interested in going to.
towards the trip? $25 a month gets your registration fee covered plus some for this event.
b. Who else can you directly ask for help? - There are people in our lives that are willing to support you: parents, other
family members, church members you stay in contact with, teachers, friends.
i. Before you ask them, be sure you know as many details as you can about the event and a dollar amount you
think they may give (don’t ask them to cover the whole trip).
ii. It is always a nice touch to do this face to face.
iii.Be gracious even if the answer is no.
iv. Send a thank you note to each individual that donated.
c. What fundraisers can you do? At the bottom of the page you will find ideas for fundraisers. As you think of
fundraisers, keep the following in mind:
i. How many am I going to do? Fundraisers take time and energy, not only from you but those that are supporting
you with time and money. Don’t over burden yourself or others in the number you will do.
ii.Who will contribute to each fundraiser? You may have influence at work, school, church, sports leagues, and a
multitude of other places. Focus each fundraiser you do to one or two specific group(s).
iii. Have a way that people can donate directly. Some people want to get their car washed to help you and others
just want to give money directly to you and your cause. Be sure that both have the option to give.
