Finding Success with Your Fundraising Toolkit

Team VeloSano

Fundraising
Since our inception in 2014, VeloSano has raised more than $17 million for lifesaving cancer research at Cleveland Clinic. This is all thanks to the hard work you, our VeloSano family, have done. While “Bike to cure” weekend is our flagship event, fundraising for cancer research is a year-long endeavor. We’ve developed a fundraising toolkit to help you meet your goals.
 
Here is some of the info you can find in the toolkit:
 
Your VeloSano Personal Fundraising Page
Online fundraising is the main tool to help you meet and exceed your VeloSano fundraising commitment. Once you’ve registered, your online personal fundraising page is automatically created to help you get started. The page allows you to share why you’re involved, request donations, send thank you notes, monitor your fundraising progress and more.
 
Personal Fundraising Tips
Here, you’ll find 5 surefire ways to set yourself up for success. This is where you’ll learn how to personalize your page, increase your goal, share your story and requests for donations via social media/text/email and more.
 
Tips on How to Raise Money for Cancer Research
Cancer research might sound like a cause that speaks for itself, but it definitely needs a voice: yours. Tell your story, why this means so much to you, send emails to everyone you know. The broader you cast your net, the more donations you can potentially get.
 
Fundraising Ideas
This might be the most fun part of the process. Everyone likes a party, right? There are so many ways to get others involved in your fundraising efforts, from hosting a bake sale to putting on a golf outing. The toolkit provides tons of fun ways to help you reach your goal, as well as how to spread the word in your community.
 
In addition, we have loads of resources to help you on your road to success. Tips, downloads, FAQs, flyers and more are available to you at velosano.org/resources.
 
Raising money takes time. Don’t get discouraged if you haven’t met your goal with your first outreach. Continue to follow-up on your asks and always include  that 1OO% of every dollar you raise goes directly to lifesaving cancer research at Cleveland Clinic. Every dollar makes a difference in the fight against cancer.

Together, we are VeloSano: 1OO% for the cure!
