HOW TO FUNDRAISE
Net Ministries Scotland How to Fundraise Tips
To raise £5,000 or more for the fundraising campaign may seem like an impossible challenge right now. As soon as someone registers, the Net Ministries Scotland fundraising team will send them a detailed fundraising pack that is full of ideas and advice.
Our Fundraising Team will also provide them with an array of fundraising materials and on-going support to ensure that they meet and even exceed their target! We ask the fundraiser to follow these simple steps to meet the fundraising challenge:
Check: What is the minimum sponsorship target for your challenge? Get started and do not delay – the sooner you get going the better.
Planning & Dedication: Make a list of all the people you could approach, the events you would like to hold and the sponsored activities you could do. Plan well ahead and start as soon as possible, this could take several months!
Delegate: Never underestimate the value of volunteers and helpers. They could have hidden talents, hobbies, event organizing skills and the ability to access untapped donors. Let your friends, family and colleagues decide how they would like to help and get them involved.
Budget: Do not spend lots of time and money on an event or activity with only small returns.
Record: Keep details of everyone who has supported you, this is good practice but also helps you keep track of whom you need to thank.
Whom to Ask for Support: Friends and family, colleagues, neighbours, local trades people, your employer, business contacts, large commercial firms, clubs and associations. Do not forget to write, phone, email and speak to everyone you know to get their support, whether it is for a donation or a raffle prize. If you do not ask you do not receive! So ask everyone you know to support your fundraising efforts.
Fundraise Online: The Net Ministries Scotland Fundraising Team will offer our fundraisers the chance to set up an online sponsorship fundraising page that allows them to collect donations from sponsors anywhere in the world, instantly and securely.
