Set Up Your Personal and Team Fundraising Pages

A personal fundraising page is created when you sign up to participate in the 2022 Huntsman SportsFest, and it is a great tool to let others know why you are raising money for Huntsman Cancer Institute. Are you raising money in honor of yourself, or a friend or family member? Personalize your web page with a story and photos; a real-life story makes fundraising personal and powerful. Click here to login and personalize your page!

If you created a team, a team fundraising page will also be created for you. You will also have the option to personalize it and tell your team story. You can invite others to join your team, and their individual page totals will pool together on central team page. 

Make a List and Send an Email

Personally asking someone for a donation is one of the most successful ways to fundraise. Make a list of potential donors. Include everyone you know and send them each an email through your personal fundraising page. Try this: start by making a donation yourself and ask others to match it. We have created three sample email templates to get you started!

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 an entirely 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. And be sure to use our event hashtags as you post about your involvement: #RunForHope #RideForHope #HuntsmanSportsFest

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 SportsFest and ask for everyone’s support. If you are dedicating your efforts to someone who has cancer- share that personal 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.
