Set a goal
Set a fundraising goal for yourself/your team and work to achieve it. By setting a personal/team fundraising goal you have something for which to strive. Let donors know what your fundraising goal is. Every life deserves hope…and every dollar counts!
Get it started
Make an initial donation to your own fundraising campaign. Show your commitment to the cause and to your fundraising goal.
Tell your story
Once you have registered, set up your walk personal & team pages. Share why AIDS Walk Atlanta & 5K Run is important to you. Are you living with HIV/AIDS? Do you walk in someone’s memory or honor? Tell us what got you in involved. Post pictures of yourself, your walk team from the previous year or the picture of the person that you walk to honor.
Ask early and ask often. Ask your family, friends, teachers, co-workers – ask everyone & then ask them again. It takes multiple asks to get a response – so just keep asking! Need help thinking of whom else to ask? Check out this link
Enthusiasm is contagious! Donors feel good about supporting something that you are interested in.
Say thank you!
Be sure to say thank you to those who donated to your fundraising efforts. It is important to be timely with your thanks.
Ask for donations from all of those people whose causes you have supported throughout the year.
Timing is everything! Ask for donations on payday. Folks are far more likely to donate when they have more in their pockets.
