Hey Dancers, we’re only three days away from the big day! Its time to hit your fundraising goals and make a difference for the kids! Here are some tips that can help you fundraise:
1) Get the word out:
A lot of your family and friends may not know that you are part of this amazing organization. So the best way to start is to tell them!! Send emails and personalized letters to friends, family, teachers, old coaches etc. Another great tool is to use social media connect with all these individuals.
2) Make it Personal:
Ask yourself “Why am I raising money for CMN?” and “Why am I part of this movement?”
Iterate that to your family and friends- they will want to help you if they know you’re serious and passionate.
3) Increase your goal!
If you go into your donor drive, you can manually change your goal amount. People want to help you achieve something.They are less willing to help you reach a goal if you’ve already reached it, so once you get closer to your amount on donor drive- consider moving the number up even more!
4) Take advantage of the campus by canning!!!
We have a number of sporting events around campus this semester
5) Do you like attention?
If so, then tell everyone you’ll do something crazy to get donations!!! For example… Wear a dress to Dance Marathon (If you’re a guy) or shave your head.
6) Keep up with the people that help you.
Send Thank you letters to everyone who has helped you reach your goal
7) Offer to do something in exchange for a donation!
Get excited, and happy dancing!
