Recruitment and Fundraising Tips

Check out our tips for recruiting members for your team and soliciting donations towards your fundraising goal.

  • Fundraise through Facebook! You can easily share your fundraiser and collect donations. Learn how to set it up here.

  • Download our customizable "Join My Team" flyer here. Print the flyer and post anywhere and everywhere!

  • Start early and set objectives and deadlines for your team's size and fundraising goals. Use your personal page through the Donate Life Fun Run RunSignup to do this. Make sure you personalize your page with your story and photographs. (For more info on how to do this, check out "Making the Most of the RunSignup Website" tips)

  • Use your unique referral code (included in your registration confirmation email) to refer friends and family to sign up. If you refer 15 participants through your code, you will receive your race registration FREE!

  • It's important to be specific and ASK, ASK, ASK! Ask anyone and everyone to join your team. Feel free to invite team members by sending them the URL to your team page (it's easiest if you copy and paste!). Make sure they know about the Virtual Participant option that allows them to participate from home!

  • Spread the message through social media! Use our Facebook cover photo on your profile page or invite friends to the Facebook event. (For more social media tips, check out our Social Media Tips.)

  • Send emails asking for financial donations with links to your personal fundraising page. Remember to share your personal connection to donation and why this cause means so much to you.

  • Send out "Thank You" emails or notes, especially when you reach big milestones! Make everyone feel appreciated and let them know their generosity is getting you closer and closer to your fundraising goal.

  • Build a pyramid. Ask each member of your team to recruit three more people to join. You'll find your team growing very quickly!
