Fundraising tips and tricks
Personal online page
Upon your online registration, you will be asked to set up your personal fundraising page. Be sure to use this site, it is a great tool!
On your personal fundraising page, you can:
- Personalize and Customize your Homepage
- Solicit Donors
- Manage Cash and Cheque Donations
- Verify the Results of your Fundraising Campaign
Use your personal page to share your story and introduce yourself to your donors. Encourage your donors to use the online system as it saves time and helps to save on administrative fees. Your Personal Page also automatically tracks your fundraising balance, so you and your donors can monitor your progress.

Corporate matching gift program
Contact your Human Resources department to find out if your company has a corporate matching gift program. With this program, the company will equally match your donation. If they do, you can obtain and complete a form and turn it in with your pledges – it’s an easy way to double your total. Moreover you can encourage donors to ask their companies for matching gift forms; many donors are not aware this is an option. Often, even if a company does not have a matching gift program, they will support your efforts financially.
