Personal Fundraising: How to Get Involved and Raise Awareness for Breast Cancer

fundraiser ideasBreast cancer research can always use more funding to continue the battle, and every dollar helps. Increasingly, people are turning to personal fundraising, and often partner with well known, established foundations to raise money.

The following tips and ideas might help you get your fundraising off to a good start:

Start a webpage or blog. Share your support, thoughts, and ideas about breast cancer with others through a personal webpage or blog. They’re easy to set up and provide a place for you to post articles, share your thoughts, and illustrate your fundraising efforts.

Donate instead of gifting. Rather than buy gifts for family and friends, donate that money through your page, and let your family know you’d rather have donations to your webpage than gifts this year.

Let everyone know. Don’t be shy—send an email, post your fundraising page on your Facebook and Twitter accounts, and spread the word about upcoming events. People are willing to give when asked, so don’t be afraid to ask!

Solicit contributions from companies you do business with. Again, just ask for what you want. All they can do is say no. Prepare a short talk about what you’re doing, and give them the URL for your page. The more businesses you approach, the more money you’ll raise.

Hold a garage sale. Most of us have items sitting around that others could use, so why not declutter your home and donate to a good cause at the same time? This is the perfect time of year for yard sales, and perhaps you can encourage neighbors or friends to donate items.

Do it online. If you have items that you’d rather sell online, use eBay, Etsy, or Craigslist to sell them.

Hold your own event. Why not hold your own event? It could be a 5K, a bake sale, a car wash, a barbecue . . . the possibilities are endless. Be sure to check and see which types of promotional materials you can use and what is permissible in your area.
