Tips on How to Maximize Your Fundraising Efforts

VOLLEYBALLOOZA is an opportunity to have some fun, connect with the community and FUNdraise $25,000 for the amazing Ten Oaks Project! Like volleyball, fundraising is a team sport—everyone has a part to play, and every little bit helps. Ane, there will be prizes for a variety of fundraising levels!
If you haven’t already created your Ten Oaks Project CanadaHelps fundraising page, you can do so here on the 10 Oaks CanadaHelps fundraising page.

Here are some tips to up your fundraising game: 

Get personal

While your networks may be interested in, and support, Ten Oaks Project, donors’ primary motivation is often to support the people they know/love. Setting up your own unique fundraising page (as part of a team or as an individual) on Canada Helps AND adding your name to the title (Eg. Help Jack raise $500 to get more kids from 2SLGBTQ+ communities to camp!) can make a HUGE difference to your fundraising. 

Every post matters

You may be surprised who donates to your fundraising page, so spread your net wide! Consider posting to any social media platforms you have (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, etc.) and even sharing with family, friends and colleagues via email or a messaging app. Make your message personal and tell your networks what your fundraising goal is  (E.g. “Help me get to my $500 fundraising goal!”) to get them engaged. 

One VOLLEYBALLOOZA fundraiser just made $1,000 after posting a link to her fundraising page to Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. 


Put things in perspective

Showing people how far their donation can go also makes a huge difference. Feel free to share these fundraising quick facts with your network: 

  • $25 could cover the cost of t-shirts for 11 kids at Camp Ten Oaks!
  • $250 could purchase all the program supplies needed for crafts and activities at camp! 
  • A $100 donation could cover the cost of meals for 2 campers for an entire week!Back to top
