Thank you for signing up and fundraising for the 2022 IG Wealth Management Alzheimer Walk & Run!
Here are some tips to make your fundraising efforts easy, fun, and engaging:
Top Tips for Fundraising
1. Get organized
There are two questions you need to answer before you ask people to pledge to you:
What are you asking people to do?
How do they do it?
2. Think about your options
Support can come from unexpected places! Ask your friends, family, neighbours, and co-workers to support you.
Need some help? Check your Participant Centre for sample emails you can send to your network!
3. Set achievable goals
Don’t aim for the impossible. Instead, break it down to a manageable level. For example, if only four friends donated $25 each, that would be $100 total!

4. Invite your loved ones
Teaming up at the race makes fundraising even more fun, and it can double your impact.
Your Participant Centre includes a sample email message to invite people to join your team.
5. Share on social
You can find us @alzcalgary and #YYCALZ with the latest on the event. Tag us and share your race journey with us!
Helpful hint: Your Participant Centre is also a great place to share your story. Use the blog feature to log your journey leading up to the event as an inspiration for others.
6. Say thank you
Showing appreciation is the best way to get more support for your efforts. Try to personally acknowledge any support you receive as soon as you can.
We’ve got a sample thank you email ready to go on your Participant Centre to make thanking your supporters even easier!
Many companies offer matching programs for charitable donations. Check with your Community Investment team to see if your company will match your donation and maximize your impact.
