Fundraising Tips and Tools


Here are some easy fundraising tips to help get you started: 

In Person and Online:

  • Ask Everyone!  The #1 reason people don’t give is because they are not asked. Request donations from family, friends, coworkers, neighbours, businesses you frequent, etc. Maybe set a goal for a daily ask or a total number of people to ask!

  • Social Media! – social media can be helpful tool to get your message out there and allow many people to know about your fundraising.

At the Office/School:

  • Have a “Casual Friday” – those participating would donate directly to you or your team in order to wear jeans or our Signature Striped Socks on Fridays!

  • Have a Spirit Day – for $2, $5, or any amount individuals can participate in a fun Spirit Day – Team Jerseys, Theme Day, etc.

  • Hold a Bake sale or Silent Auction

  • Put a donation can up in your office/classroom – RMHC can provide cans.

  • Hold a Lottery – ex: 50/50 draw, themed basket draw – RMHC can help with lottery licenses

  • Ask your employer/school if they will match your fundraising total. It’s a quick and easy way to double your donation!

  • Organize a Team!
