Five Steps to a Successful Campaign Believe in the Cause Make your gift first Educate others ASK for contributions Give THANKS to ALL! Make it FUN
Believe in your Cause The more you know about SHARE, the more effective you will be when you invite people to participate.
M A K E YOUR G I F T Make your own gift first. This shows you believe in the cause, and it will be easier to invite others to participate in SHARE.
Educate Others Many state employees aren’t familiar with SHARE or may know very little about the campaign. It is your job to make sure all employees have the informed opportunity to give.
ASK Others to Contribute Personalize your comments Advertise payroll deduction Ask for a contribution Remember – “No” is okay
Ways to Accept ‘No’ Gracefully Thank them for listening Thank them for what they are able to give, whether it is through SHARE or not (ex. they may volunteer at a soup kitchen on the weekends, or sit on the Board at a local animal shelter) Remember, they are not saying no to YOU so it is important to not take it personally
Food For Thought The last 3 campaigns raised slightly more than $400,000 If we increase participation to 10% of the workforce and multiply by the average gift of $416 – that’s $659,693!
