How to Fundraise

The most effective way to get sponsorships is to ask people directly. The next-best way is a letter-writing campaign. All donations are appreciated and they add up!


Get Started with the Sample Letter
Our sample letter makes it
easy to launch a letter
writing campaign.

Letter Writing Campaign

Make a list of everyone you know. Friends, family, co-workers, businesses you frequent and groups you belong to. For regular mail, please enclose a pre-addressed envelope for them to use.

We can also prepare a personal TeamWalk web page for you, allowing your family and friends to link right to it and make safe, online credit card donations.

Email Campaign

You can have your own TeamWalk Webpage with your photo and letterwhere people can make online credit card donations through PayPal, a secure site for online business. Email your friends and give them a link to your website. Visit for more information on how we can set up a web page for you.


Recruit Other Walkers

Ask your family and friends to register for the TeamWalk and walk alongside you! Set a fundraising goal as a group, and assign individual goals from there. Sponsorships are the most important part of our TeamWalk, so don’t stop until you hit your target!


Other Suggestions

You can organize a small Family and Friends Fundraiser! Hold a bake sale, car wash or a spaghetti supper! If you have competitive family and friends, have a fundraising contest. Check with your employer, local PTA, civic or religious group to see if they can help! Or, ask your beauty salon or other service shop to hold a special day.
