Fundraising Tips

We want to help you meet and exceed your goals!

We're here to help you raise your fundraising minimum of $100 for Bike for Brain Health. It’s surprising how quickly the donations add up once you put your mind into it, creativity and commitment into securing donations.

Always remember, you are not asking for yourself. You are asking people to support the fight for dementia!

The key is getting started now!

Below are the four first steps you should be taking to race towards your fundraising goal!

Biker Inspiration

Secure Your First Donation Today

Ask for your first donation today. Think of the people you can ask who won’t say no, like your family, friends, co-workers. Get that first donation to start momentum. You can even donate to yourself! The sooner you get started, the easier it will be to reach beyond your fundraising goal.

Email marketing

Email Everyone

Through your Participant Centre, you can easily forward emails to all of your contacts. You will find emails already written for you to send as follow-ups and thank-yous.

Even better, personalize an email with the story about why you are participating in Bike for Brain Health. Inspire your donors to support you!

Follow up with a phone call to everyone you emailed after a week to secure a donation if they haven’t already donated online.

Phones

Spread the Word

Use your social media channels such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to tell people about your incredible fundraising efforts with a link to your donation page.

Corporate Business

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!
