Helpful Tips:

  • Keep Asking! Remember, you are asking for a hungry neighbor and NOT yourself. The moment you limit who you ask, you limit the amount you can raise.
  • Ask someone who can’t participate to help you fundraise.
  • Make sure you are utilizing the only fundraising tools in your participant center. SHARE through social media often!
  • Ask your employer if they have a matching gift program or visit our website to search for your company on our matching gift database.
  • Download our offline donation form to mail in with any cash or checks you collect.
