Hello New Team Member,
Thank you so much for your interest in organizing a personal fundraising campaign to benefit The Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation.
Every 65 seconds someone is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. With more than 5.8 million cases in the United States alone, it has become the 6th leading cause of death in our nation. Our mission is to beat Alzheimer’s disease by funding innovative world-class research, which has already led to improved treatments and helped many families cope with an Alzheimer’s disease diagnosis.
By holding your own event, no matter how big or small, you really are making a difference. Whether you’ve held lots of events before, or it’s your very first time, you’ll find the information provided below helpful. If you have any further questions you can reach us at 212-915-1322 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Online Fundraising – Getting Started
Upload an image of your choosing and create a message. Your message should include why you are helping to raise funds for Alzheimer’s research. If it’s in honor or memory of a loved one, be sure to include a bit about the person and why you are honoring them.
Ask for donations
Many people are used to donating to charities. Once they find out why you are joining in this campaign, they will want to help. Create an email with a link to your Challenge Profile and send it to your family, friends, and colleagues asking them to donate. It’s that easy!
Tell a friend
Do you know someone else who’s been devastated by Alzheimer’s disease? Ask them to start their own page!
Facebook Causes is a great way to help bring awareness and funds to Alzheimer’s research. If you already have a profile on Facebook, click here to let your Facebook friends know that you need their help.
It is a busy time of year. Sometimes your family, friends, and colleagues may be too swamped with work or summer plans to open each and every email they receive. It’s okay to keep asking. No one wants to be a bother – but a friendly reminder can help you reach your fundraising goal!
