This month’s tip comes from Randy Hohf, who participated on last year’s Wind River climb and raised over $4,500 to support Big City Mountaineers youth.
“I think persistence is vital. Some say they will give but they forget. So I reminded them by sending out updates (newsletters), Facebook, and just asking them again. People have good intentions but often fail to follow through, so you have to not be afraid to bug them.”
It’s important to remember that your friends and family want to support your passion, especially if that passion is helping others, so don’t shy away from making an ask or a follow up. Keep your contacts in the loop with your fundraising progress, it will give you an opportunity to thank your donors and remind those that haven’t given yet to make their gift.
