Online Fundraising: Donations Accepted After The Walk

ANNUAL SUPPORT-A-WALK ~ SUNDAY, OCTOBER 4, 2020

Tips for Online Fundraisers

Our Annual Support-A-Walk on Oct. 4, 2020 was an amazing event with people across the country walking and showing their support. As always, the day was marked with beautiful messages of celebration, remembrance and inspiration. To those who walked, donated and raised funds, thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We are so very grateful. For a recap of the 2020 Support-A-Walk, click here.

Important Note

Your fundraising page continues to accept donations through the end of this year!

You can request and receive donations even though the Walk has taken place.

It may be that your donors were busy or preoccupied and simply forgot to donate. So don’t give up!

Here are some fundraising tips for AFTER the Walk:

Tell people it’s not too late.

In all correspondence, tell people your page is still accepting donations and the sky’s the limit!

Didn’t meet your goal?

Let people know. Ask them to help you reach it!

Did you Walk?

Tell people what an amazing day it was for you, and why. If you took photos, put one on your fundraising page.

Tribute donations

Let people know they can donate in honor or memory of someone in their life.

Give thanks.

Don’t forget to thank everyone who donated. Tell them the impact they’ve had on thousands of people fighting breast and ovarian cancer. Ask them to forward your page to others who may want to help.

Link to your page.

Remember to always include the link or URL to your fundraising page, so people can easily donate. The URL is the address at the top of your fundraising page and looks like this: www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/your-page-name/walk2020.

Can’t find your page? Search for your name here.

Matching Gift reminder

Matching gift applications can be submitted even after a donation has been received. This is the BEST way for donors to double or even triple their contribution to Support Connection.

Ask your employer if they have a Matching Gift program. Support Connection is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit. Please also share this info with your donors!

I still have some questions.
