Fundraising Tips & FAQs

That's ok! Here are some ideas to get your started. It doesn't have to be long, it just has to be 

Your page should include: 
- A description of the nonprofit you're fundraising for. What is their mission? What service do they provide? 
- An explanation of the work you're going to do. Not everyone knows how much you have to train to go on a tour like this, so tell them! How many miles will you ride a week to prepare? 
- A personal connection and a reason to give - see below. 

Writing about your personal connection to a cause: things to think about (or write down):
- You're doing a lot of work to support a cause. Why do YOU care so much about it?
- Do you have a personal story or experience with the cause you're fundraising for that you're willing to share?
-  Why should other people support this cause? 
To easily send thank-you emails to donors, follow these steps:
- Log in to your fundraiser dashboard by clicking the "My HQ" link in the top right
- Click "My Fundraising Report" in the left sidebar
- Locate the donor/donation you'd like to thank, and click "Send Email" (If the donor didn't submit their email address, this option is unavailable.)
- Type the message in the pop-up window, and click "Send Email"
