10 Days and 10 ways to $500

Fundraising can seem like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. The key to fundraising success is simple - you just need to ask! Use our guide to help reach, and even exceed, your goal in just 10 days

DAY 1 – Show your commitment!

Kick start your fundraising by making a self-donation and lead by example! Make a self-donation of $25 and watch as others follow your good example. People are more likely to give if they see that you have too.

DAY 2 – Reach out to family

Reach out to three family members and ask them to donate $25 each, getting you $75 closer to your goal.

DAY 3 – Ask five co-workers to sponsor you for $10 each

Ask five co-workers to give $10 each. That gives you another $50 towards your goal.

DAY 4 – Ask your boss to make a donation

Ask your boss for a company contribution of $50. Don’t forget to check if your company has a matching gift program too! Better yet, encourage all your donors to check with their employers if they have a matching gift program. It’s a great way to double your donations!

DAY 5 – Get social

Use your personal fundraising page URL to direct donors to your Participant Centre and post a link on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, etc., and ask your network to support your fundraising efforts for K4K. If five people donate $10, you’ve just raised $50!
