We want to help you meet and exceed your goals!
Your commitment to defeat dementia while enjoying a traffic-free fun day on the DVP is an admirable one, but we know that fundraising doesn’t always feel easy.
Getting started early and letting people know why you’re participating will go a long way towards hitting your goal. Plus, we’ve created a few tips and tools to help.
If your friends and family would prefer to donate without using the internet, our offline donation forms are available here.
Start With a Self-Pledge
Did you know that riders who make a self donation when they register earn donations from their supporters up to 80% faster in their first month? Kickstart your fundraising efforts with a self pledge of $50-$250 and set the bar for how much others should donate.
Share photos, tap into wider conversations, and go global with your connection to the cause.
Use Facebook Fundraising
It’s another great way to get your network behind your efforts. Plus, the tool is already built into the Facebook platform and easy to use. Click here to get started.
Note: Facebook can take up to six weeks to let us know the total amount fundraised.
*Funds will be listed as ‘Facebook Fundraiser’ on your participant page honour roll.
Speak To Your Employer
Don’t be shy – ask your colleagues and business contacts to support you in your fundraising efforts.
Don’t forget to find out whether your company offers a corporate matching gift program, which can double your fundraising quickly!
