HOW TO BE A FUNDRAISING PRO:

Get Creative

You can do more than sending emails. Think of something you enjoy doing, like baking or hosting dinner parties. Turn your talents into fundraising opportunities.

 

 

Ask Early & Often

It’s never too soon to ask for donations! Plus, many people you ask do intend to give, but it might take a reminder to two to make it happen.

 

 

Know the Cause

Educate yourself about Dempsey Center services and speak confidently about how the money you raise will change lives.
