When fundraising remember

Don’t be afraid to ask! You are not paying money to play squash; you are playing squash to raise money and awareness in the fight against cancer. The money raised is not for you; it’s to help find a cure. And the money raised by this event goes toward early stage research that wouldn’t be funded in any other way!
Set a goal and let people know what it is! If you are playing to honor someone, consider sharing his or her story. Everyone has been affected by cancer and one of the goals of this event is to bring people together and to fight together to help find a cure.
The single most effective tool is the personal call or contact. Let people know what you are doing and why! Knock on doors, send emails, texts and letters, post on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat – or you social media platform of choice! Sell cookies, set-up a table at work or local spot and hand out your information. They all work!
Remember to write thank you notes to each your sponsors. This will go a long way, especially when you approach them next year
