Getting Started

 

STEP ONE - SET UP YOUR FUNDRAISING PAGE

Your personal page is a great way to let people know why you are fundraising for cancer research. Are you participating in honor of a friend or family member? Or for you yourself?  Add your story, your goal and photos or a video.

 

Fundraising Tips

 

STEP TWO - WRITE YOUR EMAIL OR TEXT MESSAGE

Personally asking someone for a donation is one of the most successful  ways to fundraise. 90% of all donations through indivdual fundraising efforts are made because of direct asks.  We have created three different letter examples to help you write your own email. Feel free to personaize these letters for your needs, or use them as inspiration to create your own message.  Sending a personal text is a good alternative to an email.

STEP THREE - 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 a whole new network of people beyond just your immediate contacts.

STEP FOUR - THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX

We have created a list of 51 fundraising ideas that other fundraisers have found successful.  Be sure that whatever you do you decide to do is fun, compliments your skills, and doesn't take up too much time.

STEP FIVE - THANK YOUR DONORS

Please be sure to thank your donors by writing them a personal thank you card or email. Most people do this right away as well as sending them an update after your event of how much you were able to raise with their help and how you did in your event. Other ways to thank your donors include making them homemade goodies, inviting them to your event, holding a donor dinner in their honor at your home, etc. That is it! The three steps to success in the Huntsman Heroes program. Go to Digital Tools for more fundraising tips or click on the video resources to include video in your personal fundraising message.


 

Train together, fundraise together, and find a cure for cancer together.

In addition to knowing your hard earned fundraising dollars are going straight to cancer research at Huntsman Cancer Institute, registering for a race through the HH program has its advantages. Through partnerships with local races, Huntsman Cancer Foundation is able to offer you a discounted registration fee and incentive items throughout your fundraising journey.
