Individual Fundraising Kit

Fundraising is the essential component of AIDS Walk Atlanta & 5K Run.  It helps us to continue to our work with the HIV/AIDS community!

Download the Fundraising Kit today to make a difference in your fundraising!

Use the following ideas to help you meet your fundraising goals:

Set a goal

Set a fundraising goal for yourself/your team and work to achieve it.  By setting a personal/team fundraising goal you have something for which to strive.  Let donors know what your fundraising goal is.

Demonstrate your personal commitment

Make an initial donation to your own fundraising campaign.  Let others know that you are committed to the cause and to your fundraising goal.

Tell your story

Once you have registered, set up your walk personal & team pages.  Share why AIDS Walk Atlanta & 5K Run is important to you.  Are you living with HIV/AIDS? Perhaps you walk to remember or honor a family member or a friend.  Tell the story of how you became involved and why you participate.  Post pictures of yourself, your walk team from the previous year or the picture of the person that you walk to honor.

Just ask

Ask early and ask often.  Ask your family, friends, teachers, co-workers, doctors, lawyers, restaurants you frequent.  It takes multiple asks to get donors to respond with a donation.  Keep asking!  Need help thinking of whom else to ask? Check out this link

Show enthusiasm

Show enthusiasm about your participation and fundraising. Donors feel good about supporting something that you are interested in.

Say thank you!

Be sure to say thank you to those who donated to your fundraising efforts.  It is important to be timely with your thanks.

Other ideas

Ask for donations from all of those people whose causes you have supported throughout the year.

Timing is everything!  Ask for donations on payday. Folks are far more likely to donate when they have more in their pockets.
