Fundraising Tips

How am I going to raise $2800?

The good news is that it’s easier than you think. We’ve participated in many fundraising events and the first step is, well, to take a step. Don’t be afraid to ask! Your friends, family, co-workers, and local businesses will be interested to find out more about what inspired you to join the Climate Ride or Climate Hike! Your passion is your greatest fundraising asset. Whether you are a student, business professional, stay-at-home parent, freelancer, self-employed or retired, the fundraising ideas, tips, and proven methods on the following pages can work for you.

The first and best tip: you have to ask potential donors for their support. In the words of a former Climate Rder:  "I've tried fundraising by asking lots of people, and I've tried without asking. I always did better when I asked."
