The earlier you start your fundraising the easier it will be for you to meet your goal. We recommend you create a mini plan before you start. Below you will find a set of tips and tools to help you meet your fundraising targets.

Take the first step

Make the first donation yourself. Research shows people tend to match the amounts already donated, so a $100 donation will encourage donations of similar value. By donating to your own support page you are showing your commitment to your fundraising and setting the benchmark for other donations.

Personalise your fundraising page

If you personalise your page, you are likely to raise more than people who don’t.

Set your fundraising goal (you can always increase it when you get close). This helps to keep your supporters inspired and motivated!

Upload a photo and continue to post regular updates, images and videos throughout your journey. Let your supporters know how determined you are!

Include a short story about why your team has chosen to celebrate the 10th Unity Walk & Run for Parkinson’s. Your supporters are more likely to donate if they know why you’re passionate about the cause.

Thank your supporters as they donate to you directly on your page and by tagging them in a Facebook post. It’s a great way to publicly show your gratitude and make them feel appreciated.

Share on social

Ask and you shall receive!

Share your unique link to your fundraising page and ask for donations through all of your social channels.

  • Facebook

  • Twitter

  • LinkedIn

  • Instagram

Make the most of your ask and be sure to include WHY you've chosen to fundraise, HOW MUCH your friends should give and WHAT their donation will do for the Parkinson’s. We’ve found people who do this receive more donations!

Don’t forget to like our facebook page use the event hashtag #unitywalknsw

Put it in an email

Get in touch with friends, family and work colleagues. Tell them what you’re doing and why you’re doing it, send them a link to your fundraising page and encourage them to make a donation

Send to everyone you know, don't assume that someone won't give - the cause might mean a lot to them

Don't forget to include a link to your fundraising page

Send a follow-up email a few weeks before the event to provide them with an update of your fundraising efforts and to remind those who haven't donated yet – people don’t mind being asked twice

Paint the town

Once you've created your fundraiser page, you can download, customise and print the poster to display around your workplace or local area, to help promote your fundraising efforts. The posters have a tear off section to help your work colleagues remember the weblink on where to donate. Click here to download your poster now!
