Fundraising Tips and Suggestions

Email is an incredibly effective fundraising tool, reaching people all over the world with the click of a button. It is a great way to spread the word about your Plunge participation, to ask others to join your team, or to pledge to your cause.

Sample Email to Send Out
It’s going to be frigid! On February 2, 2019, I will be taking the plunge. You might be asking yourself, “What is this Plunge?”. Well, I will be raising money so I can jump into the ice filled pool at The Wellness Center. Freezin’ For A Reason is a fundraising event in effort to raise funds to support Good Samaritan Ministries, Inc. The Plunge into the water may be a little frigid, but I don’t mind because I am supporting the amazing efforts of Good Samaritan Ministries in attempt to combat poverty in our region.  

To jump into the frigid waters, I have set a personal fundraising goal of $(amount), and I need your help to reach it. I’m hoping you will make a donation to Good Samaritan Ministries on my behalf.

Don’t you want to see me be freezin’ for a reason?

You can support my plunge several ways. The best and easiest is to visit the donation page at www.goodsamjc.org/donate and enter “FFR” and my name into the Comment section.

If you prefer not to donate online, you can also give your donation directly to me or mail it to Good Samaritan Ministries, Inc. at the address below. Please make sure to include “FFR” and my name in the memo section with your donation so that I receive credit for your pledge.

Good Samaritan Ministries, Inc.
100 N. Roan Street
Johnson City, TN. 37601

If you can’t support my Plunge though a donation, why not consider being bold in the cold and join me in taking the Plunge? To learn more about Freezin’ For A Reason and Good Samaritan Ministries, visit www.goodsamjc.org

Tips & Tricks

·Make is personal: Tell your story. Share with others why you participate, whether it’s because you are Plunging for fun or because you love Good Samaritan’s Ministries, Inc.

·Share your nerves and excitement!

·Have fun with it! Make a contest or game out of it – the first person to donate, or the largest donation gets a gift from you!

·Set a fundraising goal: Donors want to see their friends succeed. In fact, some will donate again if they know their friend is close to their goal. Just think, if your goal is $250, you only need to ask 25 donors for $10!

·Don’t be timid about asking for support: Because you are not asking people in person to donate, it takes the anxiety off of both parties.

·Follow-up. Be sure to say thank you to donors after they make their donation and again after you take the Plunge. Send them a picture of you plunging with the results from the event.

Social Media
Facebook
Share a post from our page

Make your Plunge an event on Facebook. Invite friends to support your fundraising efforts. That way, they will have a reminder before you plunge. You can also create a Donate Page on FB. Just make sure you find Good Samaritan’s Ministries and link that organization when you do.

Share why you are plunging and what your goal is.

Post a picture of your jump after the event.

Set your profile picture and timeline photo to a picture of you or the costume you will be wearing to Plunge.

Shout outs: post a shout out to your donors when they pledge!

Don’t forget to ask your friends to take the Plunge with you.
