Every dollar you raise helps Bridges of Hope provide a safe space, resources, and hope for a brighter future to men and women facing homelessness in Greene County.
We are here to help you achieve your fundraising goals in any way we can. Below are some tips on how to successfully fundraise:
Step One: Personalize Your Page
When you register, you will be given a fundraising page to help you request donations for Bridges of Hope. The page is ready to use with pre-written content, but our participants find even more success when they customize it to say why they’re participating in One Night Without a Home.
Step Two: Spread the Word
You signed up to participate in a really meaningful campaign. You should tell people about it! Make a list of at least 20 people you know. They can be family, friends, or co-workers.
Once you have your list, copy one of our sample messages into an email, social media post, and/or text message. Personalize the message so it’s in your voice and then hit send! Remember, anytime you post or ask for a donation through email, be sure to include the link to your personal page so people know exactly how to donate.
Step Three: Follow Up
Almost everyone needs a reminder to donate, so don’t hesitate to follow-up and remind folks to follow through! Copy our sample donation reminder to follow up with people you’ve already asked. You can also share statistics in an email, social media post, and/or text message along with a link to your fundraising page.
