Fundraise for Water

Fundraise for the cause of clean water!

Other Tips and Ideas

Make Your Timeline a Deadline: Turn your fundraising timeline into a countdown to the end of your campaign. This helps build momentum leading up to the final day and provides an opportunity to reach out to your contacts again as time ticks down.

Make Your Ask Meaningful: Tie your fundraising drive to a number that’s personal to you. For example, if you’re raising money to celebrate your 5th wedding anniversary, consider asking for a minimum donation of $5 or making your total fundraising goal $555.

Match Donations: If you’re able, consider committing to personally matching donations that friends and family make to your campaign. Matching campaigns instantly double the amount of money raised and can help inspire more people to give. You can either match donations as you go along or make one bigger donation at the end of your campaign.

Raise the Bar: Sometimes we receive an overwhelming amount of support when we put our hearts into raising money for important causes. That can lead to meeting our fundraising targets ahead of schedule. If that happens, thank those who have chipped in already. Then consider increasing your target. Every dollar helps deliver more clean water!

Form a Team: If you know someone who wants to join you in your campaign, create a team page and ask them to set up their own personal fundraising page so they can join your team. By combining your networks of friends and families, you can raise even more money for clean water projects. You can create a team or join an existing team through your dashboard on the peer-to-peer fundraising tool.
