Fundraising Top Tips
It’s a great big challenge to decide to do Sober October for a full month, but we think you’re amazing for taking the leap! We’ve put together some tips and tricks to help with your fundraising.
Set a fundraising target
Those who set a fundraising target raise up to 600% more than those who don’t set one!
Complete your profile page
Add a profile picture, and update your bio to let everyone know why you’re fundraising.
Donate to yourself for your first donation
The best way to kick off your fundraising is to show your supporters how it’s done.
How to ask for donations
Think about who to ask and how to ask
You might get a great response from a post on your socials, but you’d likely get some great responses with a few personal messages sent directly to close family and friends.
Suggest a donation amount
Give a guide to your donors by letting them know how their donations help (link to How we help page).
Explain your why
Letting people know your reasons for doing Sober October will help them connect to the cause.
Make it easy
Share the link to your fundraising profile, or for something even easier, if they scan your unique QR code with their phone it’ll take them straight to your donation link!
