Eight ways to boost
your fundraising efforts

  • Piggy bank

    Don't discount the small stuff.

    Put out a change jar and ask everyone in your house to empty their pockets at the end of the day. Over time, every little bit adds up!

  • Air horn

    Talk about your fundraising efforts on social media.

    Reach your friends and family where they hang out online by posting progress updates and links to fundraising page on your social media accounts a few times per week.

  • Two gift boxes

    Double donations through company matching gifts.

    When your friends and family donate, remind them to see if their employers have matching gift programs, and encourage them to fill out the necessary paperwork (usually with someone in HR).

  • Envelopes

    Send at least three fundraising e-mails to family and friends.

    People are busy, but that doesn't mean they don't want to give. Chances are you'll need to email the same group of people three (or more) times to give everyone who's likely to donate a chance to follow through.

  • Local business

    Ask your favorite local business for a donation.

    Local business love their customers and rely on your support, so why not ask them to return the favor and give?

  • Chat bubbles

    Personalize your own fundraising page.

    Inspire your friends and family to give by sharing the reasons why you support Planned Parenthood.

  • Ballons

    Throw a party, shindig, or other fun event.

    Big or small, events raise money. Holidays are great opportunities to have friends over for food and games and talk to them about supporting women's health.
