Make sure to include facts about why you are supporting the Bike for Cancer and the Rosemary D. Gruner Memorial Cancer Fund. Let donors know that the money you raise stays in our community.
Let your donors know your reason for riding. Everyone has a story – don’t be shy about sharing your own.
Write a list of personal contacts, including businesses you frequent, for example your hairdresser or barber, veterinarian, dry cleaner, mechanic, bakery, etc. and ask if they will support your ride.
Send Emails! to friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, fellow church members, old classmates-you never know who has been touched by cancer. Include the Bike for Cancer web site address in your signature line – www.bikeforcancer.org
Double your money by applying for a matching gift. Be sure to check with your company to see if matching gifts are offered. You can also ask any of your donors if their donations are eligible to be matched by their companies too.
Form a Team and fundraise even more with a group of like-minded individuals! Inform your HR department or community coordinator about the ride.
Encourage friends and family members to volunteer the day of the event so they can experience first hand the generosity of our community and meet the people that we help together!
