Because of YOU and your fundraising efforts, we’ll be able to keep our doors open and continue giving a second chance to homeless animals.

So let’s start fundraising!  Check out Coach Julie’s Weekly Fundraising Tips Below! 

Spring is almost here, and that mean’s it’s Paws Walk season! We can’t wait to walk with you on June 5, but there is so much we can do before then.

These next 3 months are crucial for the event’s success and will help us save many, many lives… all because of you! As a fundraiser for Paws Walk, you make the difference for homeless and helpless animals.

So if you haven’t already done so, spring into action and get your fundraiser started! The first step is setting up your Classy fundraiser page. It’s quick, easy, and completely customizable.

Once you’ve added pictures and your story, get to work contacting your family, friends and coworkers. Their donations will help you reach your goal. Below are some examples you can use in email and social media:

Help me help homeless animals! On June 5, I’ll be walking at Paws Walk to save lives with every step. Your donation can help the New Hampshire SPCA ensure every animal has a safe and loving home. <Insert Classy personal fundraising link>

Yes, we’re all super excited for Paws Walk on June 5, but did you know that the months leading up to event day even more important? Now’s the time when you can truly make a difference and fundraise to give homeless animals their happy ending.

The same goes for your donors. As you’re out there asking friends, family and others to support your walk, be sure to tell them how much good their gift can do.

Get personal with it! Why is the NHSPCA important to you? Have you adopted from us or been inspired by a story from our newsletter or social media?

We make families complete every day – one recent lucky pup was Boss. Fundraising from Paws Walk helped us transport Boss from an overcrowded shelter where his prospects for adoption seemed slim, up to the NHSPCA and his new forever family!

With just two months to Paws Walk, one great way to amp up your fundraising and start strong is by setting a stellar goal.

Goal setting is extremely important in fundraising, and while a high goal might seem intimidating, with a little strategy and perseverance, you can achieve anything. Just think of all the animals you will help!

 

Think of the big picture when picking your goal. Instead of getting too literal with exact dollars and donors, imagine how much help a larger amount of money can give. Don’t be afraid of a challenge and be sure to update your goal in Classy.

Once you’re set on a number, the fun begins. Email can be a great start to fundraising. Then think of other creative ways to bring you closer to your goal, like selling handmade goods, asking businesses you frequent for their support, or hosting a dinner with friends to benefit your walk.

With a little creativity and effort, any goal is achievable!

We are so excited to walk with you on June 5, and hope you will be sporting this year’s exclusive Paws Walk t-shirt. There’s only one way to get it… raise $29 by May 12 and help us rescue all the dogs!

Thanks so much for all of your hard work for Paws Walk so far!

While you’re out there putting your best fundraising foot forward, remember that sharing creates caring. Get personal, telling your own story and inspiring your donors to feel the same love for the animals as you.

Bring a personal story into your outreach, or talk a little bit about the lifesaving work of the NHSPCA. Here are some examples you can cut and paste into your own communication:

·       I’m committed to raising $________ for Paws Walk to help the NHSPCA give a second chance to thousands of homeless and helpless animals this coming year. Your donation can literally save lives.

·       At the NHSPCA, they believe that every animal deserves a safe and loving home. That’s why I’m walking in Paws Walk. You can make a difference too by donating to my campaign.

·       Will you help me save a life today? By donating to my Paws Walk fundraiser, you are directly helping animals who’ve experienced homelessness, neglect, and abuse as they find safety at the NHSPCA.

I hope you’ve had a great week fundraising for the animals. Thank you for everything you have been doing! With Paws Walk 6 weeks away, there is still so much we can achieve to reach our fundraising goal.

As you’re fundraising, remember that a direct ask is always more successful than a generic post.
