Tips For Successful Fundraising

Social Media

Utilizing social media is a simple and effective way to fundraise. Share your story and fundraising page link via Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter and LinkedIn, and don’t forget to tag @TeamLurieChildrens.

  • Leverage your fundraising page and create a QR code
    • Put it on everything!
      • Posters
      • Stickers
      • Share it in a newsletter
  • Tap into your network and announce your fundraiser with a post on your platform of choice (Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, etc.)!
    • Share why you are fundraising for Lurie Children’s
    • Create a challenge. For example, ask for a donation in the amount for the day, June 1 = $1…June 30 = $30. The challenge is up to you, but challenges get your audience to take action and spread awareness!
    • Include a call to action. What do you need your supporters to do? Don’t be afraid to ask!
