Eight ways to boost
your fundraising efforts
Donate to your own fundraising efforts.
When your friends and family visit your page, they'll see that you donated to support women's health and rights before asking them to chip in too.
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!
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.
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).
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.
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?
Personalize your own fundraising page.
Inspire your friends and family to give by sharing the reasons why you support Planned Parenthood.
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.
