fundraising tips

Fundraise on special days

You can raise money any time of the year, but special days make your fundraising efforts especially irresistible. These include birthdays, holidays, weddings, anniversaries, graduation, and more.

Set a personal challenge

Bring attention to your fundraiser through a personal challenge. Let your friends and family know what you’ll do once you’ve met a specific fundraising goal. It could be you’ll run a marathon, dye your hair, shave your mustache, whatever you can think of! If you’re fundraising in honor of someone, consider a challenge that’s connected to the person you care about.

Tell your story

Often people want to fundraise for Active Minds because they have a personal connection to mental health awareness or suicide prevention that makes them feel strongly about supporting our mission. Share your story so your readers or listeners are inspired to give and act to change the conversation about mental health.
