Fundraising Tips & Tools

Show how much you care by fundraising in honour of someone special. Your event, big or small, raises money for awareness, support, and vital research.

STEP 1: CREATE OR JOIN AN EVENT

First thing’s first! Sign up to create an event or join an event that is already happening.

STEP 2: PERSONALIZE YOUR FUNDRAISING PAGE

Your personal fundraising page tells others who you’re raising funds for, whether it’s yourself, someone you love, or generations to come. Inspire your donors by sharing your story.

STEP 3: SET YOUR SIGHTS ON A FUNDRAISING GOAL

An ambitious fundraising goal shows people your level of commitment to this important cause. Potential donors want to see you succeed and setting your sights high will motivate them to give generously in hopes of helping you achieve your target.

STEP 4: BE YOUR FIRST DONOR

Setting the stage for giving through a personal donation highlights your dedication and inspires others to rise to the challenge by following suit.

STEP 5: REACH OUT

Make a list of potential donors you wish to connect with. Share your story with them through emails, face-to-face conversations and social media. A variety of fundraising materials are available to assist with your outreach. Visit the toolkit below to download materials.

STEP 6: GIVE THANKS

Thank donors personally and update them every so often with your progress so they can understand their impact.
