Tell YOUR Story. Why are you raising funds for NECC?

Are you a parent? Friend? Employee? Let others know how NECC has impacted you. Educating your fundraising audience on the cause you feel most passionate about allows them to feel like they are a part of something. Tell your story and invite others to contribute. Many people simply do not donate because they are not asked. Let people know what NECC means to you and how they can help!


Social media is a fast and easy fundraising tool. Briefly share why you are participating and include a link to your participant center.

Send Emails to Friends, Family, and Colleagues

You can send short emails through your online participant center which will provide a link to your fundaising page making it easy to donate. Plan to send solicitations on a regular basis - often people don't take action on the first communication.  Keep your network updated on your progress and provide some suggested donation amounts (donations of $5, $10, or $20 add up fast!). Most importantly, be sure to thank your donors immediately.

Add a line to your email signature with a link to your personal fundraising page. 

Plan an Activity or Event

Host a bake sale, garage sale, book sale, wine and cheese party. Ask your gym if they would host a fundraising class to benefit your fundrasing efforts and NECC.  Contact us for more ideas and guidance. 

Corporate Involvement

Many companies have a matching gift program and/or support employee's charitable initiatives. You just need to ask!
