Fundraising ALL Teams should plan to have a fundraiser the night of Relay (Make Bracelets, sell ribbons, sell baked goods) Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a table and a time. All proceeds go towards your team’s total. Give them ideas! Consider a fundraiser in the residence halls. Talk to your RA! Do a fundraiser in the Student Center! We have tables reserved, just email us!
How to Fundraise? Send out emails!!! – The worst that can happen is they don’t reply or they say no Make a Personal or Team Donation – Kickoff your own fundraising efforts by making a donation to yourself or to your team. Sometimes it just takes one person to start the ball rolling. Encourage your team members to follow your lead.
Double Your Money Through Matching Gifts Many employers offer matching gift programs. Your $50 donation could turn into $100 just by asking your human resources department if they have a matching gift form and reminding friends and family who support you to do the same!
Fundraising Incentive Program This year, Relay For Life of Quinnipiac University is introducing something brand new...The Fundraising Incentive Program. A sheet that you can access from the RFL page shows the gifts that you will receive for the money you raise. You may redeem your gift at any time, you just have to email us (email@example.com) to get the code. Once you redeem your gift code, you may not get another even if you achieve another firstname.lastname@example.org
