Here are some ways to get things started!


 If live-streaming, encourage the use of the Team Overlay to track and display the performance of everyone's fundraising!


 Determine the length of the campaign! Is it a weekend of fundraising or are you fundraising throughout the year! Having a certain day is a powerful way to create a sense of urgency. 


 Gather your contact lists and send emails, make social media posts in order to let people know about what you’re doing. 

 Connect with the charity you are supporting to see if they have assets to show why you are looking for support. 

 Inquire at your school, place of worship, place of work, or community center to see if they are interested in joining your team. 

 Check to see if your employer provides matching gifts for donations made. 


 Donate to yourself to get things started and encourage your teammates to do the same! Get that donation train moving! 

 Set-up awards and shout-outs for teammates that hit goals. 

 Touch base regularly with your team with any updates or encouraging messages about the impact they have on the cause! 

 Celebrate post-campaign and give your team members a recap of their fundraising performance!
