Fundraising Toolkit

 

Fighting cancer is a cause that is easy to rally around and one that many people will gladly support. The Huntsman Cancer Institute is working hard to discover new ways to treat cancer, and 100% of the money you raise goes to fund lifesaving research.

 

PERSONALIZE YOUR FUNDRAISING PAGE

A personal fundraising page is created when you sign up as a Huntsman Hero, and it’s a great tool to let others know why you are raising money for cancer research. Are you raising money in honor of a friend or family member? Or for yourself? Personalize your web page with a story and photos; a real-life story makes fundraising personal and powerful.

 

MAKE A LIST AND SEND AN EMAIL OR TEXT MESSAGE

Personally asking someone for a donation is one of the most successful  ways to fundraise. 90% of all donations through indivdual fundraising efforts are made because of direct asks.  We have created three different letter examples to help you write your own email. Feel free to personaize these letters for your needs, or use them as inspiration to create your own message.  Sending a personal text is a good alternative to an email.

SHARE ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Social Media is a fun, fast, and easy way to turn friends, family, colleagues, and neighbors into donors. Think big and use your social media outlets to tap into a whole new network of people beyond just your immediate contacts. You’ll be surprised at the extra donations that can come in just by sharing your personal fundraising page on social media. #HuntsmanHeroes #HeroForHope

 

TALK IT UP

Ask for a few minutes on the agenda of any meetings you’ll be attending. Explain why you are participating in the Huntsman Heroes program and ask for everyone’s support. If you are dedicating your efforts to someone who has cancer- tell that person’s story.

 

THANK YOUR DONORS

Please don’t forget to thank your donors! You can send them a handwritten note, email, text, give them a call, or even recognize them on social media. It’s important to appreciate your supporters and let them know their contribution is valued. You can even bake them cookies or invite them to dinner if you feel like their generosity was above and beyond.
