Walker Walking

Fundraising

It’s important. It’s essential. It can also be a little intimidating. We have 100% faith that YOU can reach your fundraising goal! Your Walker Coach will work with you personally to develop a step-by-step fundraising plan that perfectly fits your busy life! Log in to your Participant Centre for more fundraising tools and resources.

Set Your Personal Page

We all have a story and this is your chance to tell yours. Once you’ve registered, log in to the Participant Centre and get started by updating your profile photo and Personal Page story.

Secure Your First Donation

Ask for your first donation today! Think of the people you can ask like your family, friends, and co-workers who won’t say no. Get that initial donation to start momentum. You can do it! The sooner you get started, the easier it will be to reach beyond your fundraising goal.

Create a List of Potential Donors

Write down the names of all the people in your life — family, friends, neighbours, co-workers, family doctor, auto mechanic — don’t leave anyone out. You know a lot of people!

Email Everyone

After registering, send a simple email to all of your contacts and don’t forget to include your Personal Page link. Include a note about why you are committed to OneWalk and inspire your donors to support you!

After a week, follow up with a phone call to everyone you emailed to secure a donation if they haven’t already donated online. You can also log in to your Participant Centre where you will find emails already written for you to send as follow-ups and thank-yous.

EXPANDING YOUR GIVING CIRCLE

Reach people you’ve never met!

Have everyone you email forward your donation request to their friends and family. Use social media like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to share your journey and encourage others to support you. Have family and friends distribute donation forms for you and talk to their contacts about supporting your OneWalk.

Fundraising Resources and Toolkit

Corporate Support

There are several ways you can ask your company to support you! Talk to management about a donation from the company or about donation matching. Corporate teams are also a great way to increase your fundraising all while encouraging camaraderie and adding to your company’s social responsibility.
