Tips for making a successful fundraiser


Reshare the fundraiser 2-3 times per week

Each time you share, include a personal reason why a universal health care system is important to you or give people an update on how much money you need to raise to meet your goal. This update is a reminder to your friends that your fundraiser is ongoing. These re-shares will go on your friend’s news feed and provide them with updates.


Send a fundraiser invitation to your friends.

It is a personal touch that pays off.


Write about your own compelling personal health care story.

If you are a diabetic, you can talk about the continually rising price of insulin. If you are a medical professional or student, you likely have amazing personal stories to tell about your patients.


Set a meaningful end date


Thank each person who donates to your fundraiser

It’s critical to let people know you appreciate their contributions AND it lets other people see that you care.


Like all the comments that are made on your fundraiser

And respond to them.


When the fundraiser is over, send out a note to your friends

Show that you appreciate their help and update them on your success!
