We know asking for money can feel daunting, but being an evangelist for Komen Florida is more than fundraising. It’s a way to stand up for Komen Florida and ask people to join the movement. Here are a few tips that will help guide your successful fundraiser launch:

  • Be you – The story is the heart of a fundraiser. People connect to people, so don’t be afraid to share your compassion for a cause. Authenticity is key.
  • Be specific – What is this cause? Who is the organization? Why should people care? What is the money going towards?
  • Be transparent – Communicate with updates on the progress, money raised, and any incoming information from the nonprofit.
  • Be proactive – Don’t just launch and leave it. Be sure to stay on top of it.
  • Be creative – Feel inspired to post videos, share infographics, photos, countdowns, interviews, your ideas are endless!
