Did you know?
It takes an average of three emails to inspire an online donation.
Busy lives often interrupt great intentions. Don't be shy about repeating your request to potential donors. With each additional email you send, provide a fundraising and training update.
Don’t forget to tell people why you ride for Children’s Hospital Colorado!
Customize your email signature
Remind your friends and family about your fundraising with every email you send. Include a link to your Personal Page with a message about supporting your ride in your email signature:
I'm riding in the Courage Classic bicycle tour supporting Children's Hospital Colorado patients. Please donate in honor of my ride: [INSERT LINK TO YOUR FUNDRAISING PAGE].
Thank donors and thank them again
Use your Donation Report to see who has donated to your ride, and then thank them. Remember, you may customize any of the emails in the Email Center or use the Thank You email we created for you.
Our top Courage Classic fundraisers suggest sending out a letter or email after the ride to tell all your donors about the weekend and how much money you raised for Children's Colorado. This also plants a seed for next year.
