Tips & Tools
Thank you signing up and for fundraising for the 2021 IG Wealth Management Alzheimer’s Walk & Run Virtual Challenge! Here are a few tips to make your fundraising efforts fun, upbeat and stress-free.
Top Tips for Fundraising
Get organized: Here are two questions to think about before you ask people to pledge you.
- What are you asking people to do?
- How do they do it?
Think about your options: Support can come from unexpected places! Ask your friends, family, neighbours and co-workers to support you.
Set achievable goals: If just FOUR friends gave $25 each, that would be $100 raised!
Invite and friend: Teaming up makes fundraising much more fun, and it doubles your impact.
Share on social media: Your participant centre can be inspiring and powerful. Share your story online to inspire others. Check out the blog feature to log your journey leading up to the event. Don't forget to use the hashtag #YYCALZ.
Double your impact: Ask your employer if they offer a matching gift program. If they do, mention it when you are asking others for support - they could have their donation matched by their employer too!
Most importantly - say THANK YOU: Showing your appreciation is the best way to secure continued support. Be sure to personally acknowledge support as soon as you can.
Unsure if your company offers corporate matching? We have compiled a list of several companies that will provide corporate matching. Click here
