Week #9 – Raise $2,500 in Nine Days
It is very helpful to set a fundraising goal and break target amounts into smaller more manageable increments. To get you started, here is a simple yet eye-opening strategy for raising $2,500 in just nine days.
Day 1: Start by sponsoring yourself for $100
Day 2: Ask six family members to sponsor you for $100
Day 3: Ask ten friends to each contribute $50
Day 4: Ask seven co-workers to each contribute $50
Day 5: Ask five neighbors to each contribute $25
Day 6: Ask ten people from your place of worship to each donate $25
Day7: Ask your boss for a company contribution of $200 (or find out if your company will match what you raise)
Day 8: Ask five businesses with which your company works to sponsor you for $50
Day 9: Ask five businesses you frequent (for example your barber/hair stylist, dry cleaner, veterinarian, coffee shop, restaurants, etc.) to contribute $25
Day 10: Check out your fundraising page: You did it!
