Everything you need for a successful fundraiser!
You have chosen an activity that motivates you and you are ready to create your fundraising event? The HMR Foundation has put together a few tips and tricks that will contribute to the success of your fundraiser.
A fundraising page to your image
Once created, add a personal touch to your page by updating the profile picture and by describing why the Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont Foundation is important to you.
Be sincere: even if you’re brief, true emotions can find their way to people's hearts!
Use the available resources
Read the booklet prepared by the HMR Foundation and use the tips and tricks that are the most relevant to your fundraising.
Put your network to the task
Ask your friends and family to support your fundraising event. Depending on the type of fundraiser, invite them to join your fundraising team or to volunteer on the day of your event.
They're great people - tell them what a difference their support can make with the sample emails provided.
Finally, don't be shy with your employer: engaging in a fundraiser greatly valued and... you may get a donation you didn't expect!
Take the most out of social media
Social media can help you reach your fundraising goal and even surpass it!
- Share your goal and add the link to your fundraising page.
Adapt your message according to the platform, make regular updates and vary your posts: text, photo and video.
Don’t forget to tag the Foundation’s accounts! We maybe share your content!
Give thanks and praises to all of the donors
In addition to the messages generated automatically to donors and participants, take the time to personally thank all of those who participated in your fundraiser. An email, a phone call or a message of recognition on social networks are various ways to show your gratitude.
And they're a great opportunity to announce what is... your next fundraising project!
