Fundraising Tools

GENERAL TIPS

  • Share your story! Why is the Autism Society important to you? Write a message, share a video, use photos!
  • Use Facebook Fundraisers and other social media accounts to invite friends & family! Post often to remind
    your network of what you're trying to accomplish. People have good intentions but need reminders!
  • Directly ask those closest in your network to give a donation of any amount. Many are often happy to
    support a cause close to someone they know, they just need to be asked!
  • Offer to match donations up to a certain amount. Or kick things off by making a donation yourself

WAYS TO ASK FOR SUPPORT

  • The Power of 10 - Ask 10 friends to donate $10 or more! (That's like donating 2 pumpkin spice lattes)
  • Ask friends and family to donate $5 for every mile you log over the challenge! They'll be happy to support
    your fitness and wellness goals!
  • Ask friends, family, co-workers, or neighbors if they will sponsor you and/or your team to help you reach
    your goal.
  • Take advantage of your Facebook network! After you set up your fundraiser in Runsignup, follow the
    prompts to link a Facebook fundraiser. All donations through Facebook will be automatically added to your
    Spectrum of Colors fundraising goal. After this is set up, invite friends directly to the fundraiser.
