You’ve decided on a fundraising idea and registered for the A-Team, but now you need to start fundraising!
So, where to next?
First and foremost, reach out to friends and family and share with them about your fundraising initiative.
From there, another helpful tool is to ask your workplace if they would match your fundraising dollar for dollar. A lot of workplaces already have matched giving programs in place, so this is a great way to double your fundraising.
If you’re unsure who to approach at your organisation, HR is a good starting point. Find out if your HR team have someone leading their corporate social responsibility. Once you have a point of contact, let them know what you’re doing, who you’re doing it for, and how they can support you.
While it’s great to make the approach face-to-face, we know that these days so many people are working remotely or from home. So, if you can’t meet face-to-face, pick up the phone and introduce yourself. Share your personal reasons for fundraising and follow up with an email with a link to your personal fundraising page and details about the cause.
At PCFA, we’re always happy to support you with approaching your workplace. We can assist you by providing information and resources to showcase the incredible impact of your fundraiser for men and families living with prostate cancer. Some workplaces prefer to have their contribution invoiced which we can arrange as well.
Even if they can’t commit to matching dollar for dollar, they may choose to make a tax-deductible donation as an organisation and want to know more about how they can promote life-saving prostate cancer awareness in the workplace. It’s a win-win!
If you’d like support with approaching your workplace, reach out to our team on email@example.com or give us a call on 1800 22 00 99. We’re here to help.
