Fundraising for Unite to Fight?

Unite to Fight is our biggest peer-to-peer fundraising event of the year. Once you register for the event, you’ll find easy-to-follow instructions for creating your very own fundraising page. Before you step up the starting line, use the following best practices to put your best foot forward when it comes to fundraising. 

1. Personalize and share your fundraising page 

Personalize your page with details about why you support Filling in the Blanks and think others should too! It’s helpful to add images and anecdotes that speak to your experience with the issue of food insecurity and/or our organization. Let people know your unique motivation for fundraising.

2. Set a goal and let people know what it is It’s hard to be motivated without a clear goal. Set a fundraising target that feels realistic, yet challenging, and communicate this goal in your messaging to friends and family. You can also let your supporters know that every dollar counts and is tax-deductible.

3. Highlight important milestones and express gratitude

Keep your supporters updated on your progress in getting ready for the event and your fundraising. And most importantly, acknowledge your supporters with a personal thank you, social media shout-out, or even an old-fashioned phone call. Let everyone know how much you (and we) appreciate their support.
