ASK, ask, ask!
If you don’t ask, they won’t donate. Number 1 reason people donate is because they are asked. Don’t be shy, ask for a donation in support of Wounded Warriors Canada, NOW.
Don’t hesitate to contact BBR17 Operations Manager, Todd McGowan, if you need more information or a speaker for a group of people.
Use the fundraising program on your homepage, it works.
Write a short letter/email, sharing something about yourself or the person you are riding in support of.
Tell them donations are tax deductible.
Send “THANK YOU” notes.
Add a tagline to your email signature that includes an ‘ASK’ such as; ‘Join me in supporting The Highway of Heroes Bike Ride’.
Ask your employer if they have a Matching Gift Program and double your fundraising efforts! Programs vary from business to business, but the most common programs match the employees donation dollar for dollar.
Other programs double or even triple the donation, ask your Human Resource Department for details.
