Fundraising Tips

  1. Set your fundraising goal!

  2. If you have a personal story, share it.

  3. Upload any photos related to your fundraising.
    EXAMPLE: if it's for your wedding, use an image of you and your partner or use an image related to your connection with Children's Hospital Colorado. We have also provided you with a few patient photos you may use.

  4. Upload a related video or use one of the ones we have provided for you on your personal or team fundraising page.

  5. If you do not have a personal connection to Children's Colorado, think about fundraising in honor of any of these patients. Update your donation page with their image and a short version of their story.

  6. After you personalize your page(s), use your Email Center to ask friends and family to donate

  7. Use social media to promote your fundraising and always remember to link to your personal fundraising page.
