Use the website! It's a quick, easy way to collect donations. Click "Register" and you will be guided through the registration process. Once your signup is complete, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to your personal fundraising webpage.
People who edit their website to talk about why they are raising money for Big Brothers Big Sisters raise a lot more money. It only takes a few minutes to add a picture and a few words.
People who make a gift when they first sign up also raise a lot more money - you can kickstart your own fundraising momentum!
Email friends or share your page on Facebook to ask people to support you. And don't forget about letters, phone calls!
Plan your own fundraising event! Interested in hosting a bake sale or car wash? You can send invites to your own personalized event through your OneCause page! Set this up by clicking your name on the top right corner of the site, and then clicking "Host an Event" in the left hand tool bar. Need more help? Call Melissa at 269-382-6800, ext. 139! She'd be happy to brainstorm a few ideas with you!
Say THANK YOU! Thank your team members for their time and commitment to participate! Don’t forget to thank the people who donated to you, too! Call or e-mail them after the event to let them know how much money your team raised and thank them for supporting local children!
