Fundraising Tip: How to Raise $1,000 in 9 Days

By following this simple calendar (or modifying it to fit your personal situation), you can indeed raise $1,000, or close to it, in just nine days. If you’re not comfortable asking for these amounts from people, lower them and ask more people for smaller donations. Or if you’re feeling gutsy, ask fewer people for larger donations.

Whatever your strategy, make sure your fundraising page is in tip-top shape before asking anyone for anything. Set it up with a photo and a blurb about why you’re running, so people will feel inspired to say yes when you ask for their support.

And that’s it! Your $1,000 fundraising goal has been met, simple as 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9!
