Fundraising Tips & Tools

  1. Start now

    There's no time like the present. And results show the sooner you start, the more you'll raise. "Ask early and ask often" - Chris Lennert

  2. Know your networks

    Make a list of every person you know -- friends, family, neighbors, acquaintances, and business associates. You have just created your donor list. Need extra help? Use the Know Your Networks Worksheet (.pdf)

  3. Aim high

    Set a goal that seems just out of reach. It will inspire you and the people you're asking for support. A World Free of MS is going to take everything we can collectively raise.

  4. Be ready to educate

    People may have questions. Luckily, we have lots of answers. Check out these 10 facts about MS. See also: What is MS? Progress in MS research, and Impact

  5. Give to yourself

    You'll set the example and the kick-start your fundraising! "Donate a dollar to yourself now and then so that your total doesn't end in a "0" or "5". People will tend to add 4 dollars to their donation to round out the number. Works every time!" - Mike Figliulo

  6. Set up your fundraising page to tell your story

    Within the participant center, you have your very own web page. Be sure to customize it with your story and your pictures. Another great way to tell your ongoing story is to blog within your Participant Center - "When you sign up one of the tools available on your personal page is a blog. I post something every week. People can like or comment just like any other blog except this is integrated into your personal page. Use the blog tool regularly. I have found that about half of my email list goes to the blog regularly to read. If they are getting that far, they are only a click away from donating." - Kevin Fischer

  7. Ask far and wide!

    Many think the initial ask can be difficult, but it's easier if you tell everyone WHY you are doing what you are doing. The excitement is contagious and your story will inspire others. Your commitment and passion will be the reason they choose to give you a donation. Remember, you aren't asking them to give YOU a donation, you're giving them an opportunity to make a difference.

  8. Share your progress

    Keep your donors and your network updated on your training and fundraising progress - they are a part of this journey too. Who knows, maybe they'll make another donation!
