FUNDRAISING TIPS

 

CUSTOMIZE YOUR PERSONAL FUNDRAISING PAGE

Setting up your fundraising page will help you successfully raise funds to support Pet Partners. You can efficiently use online fundraising to spread the word to friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors about your efforts and encourage them to make donations online. Walkers who raise funds online will typically raise more than double the donations of participants who choose not to fundraise online. There are a few steps to get your fundraising page set up:

  • Personalize your page with your profile photo and your own message. Let everyone know why you’re walking and raising funds for Pet Partners – your supporters are more likely to donate if they understand your story and why supporting therapy animal work is important to you.
  • Send personalized emails to potential supporters to improve your fundraising success! Make a goal to send at least 15 personalized emails inviting your friends and family to support your walking efforts. Click here for sample email templates.
  • Set a fundraising goal on your page. Setting goals will keep you focused and motivated to cross your own fundraising finish line! Most teams set a goal of securing 10 friends to raise $1,000—that’s just $100 per person.

LACE UP & TEAM UP

Walking is more fun with friends, so ask EVERYONE to join your team!  

WALK & SPREAD THE WORD

Share, Share, Share! Snap pics of you and your pets to inspire others to get involved. Utilize your social media to raise money and awareness for #WorldsLargestPetWalk and #PetPartnersAZ.

INVOLVE YOUR ANIMALS

All friendly leashed animals are welcome to join in the Walk Day fun. Whatever special animals are in your life, you can involve them by walking together, and by sharing how you are supporting Pet Partners of Arizona.  As always, we encourage YAYABA (You Are Your Animal’s Best Advocate) for registered therapy animals and non-registered family pets.  Be sure to familiarize yourself with your animal's signs of stress and always clean up after your animal (big or small).
