Fundraising

GET STARTED

With our support, you will not only raise an incredible amount of money for cancer research, but also be completely ready to cycle the most meaningful journey of your life. Cyclists are required to raise a minimum of $2,500 in donations, but in fact our Riders on average raise $3,500 or more because of all the support we provide!

The key is getting started if you haven’t already. More funds raised means more support for critical cancer-fighting efforts at Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.

 7 Steps To Fundraising Success

1. MAKE YOUR OWN DONATION

  • Want to make your fundraising easy? Make your own donation – those who
    do so raise 2 to 3 times the amount those who don’t!
  • Most Riders donate $100 to $200 to kick start their fundraising.
  • You’ll find that this donation is the benchmark – most people match what
    you do.

2. GET YOUR DONATION MATCHED

Who is the one person who won’t say no to you? Your partner, mum, brother,
best friend, boss? Give them the honour of being your first donor. After your first
peer donation, you’ll never look back!

3. SEND EMAILS TO 5 PEOPLE

  • Who are the next 5 people who are most likely to donate to you? Write
    them a personal email and ask them for a donation.
  • Take advantage of draft letters and other email tools in the Participant Centre.

4. SET UP YOUR PERSONAL PAGE

Tell your story of who inspired you. Personalise your online page and be
sure to include a photo. Fast facts:

  • 90% of donations come in online.
  • People raise 20% more funds when their page is personalised with a photo
    and story.

5. ACTIVATE YOUR NETWORK

  • Add your email badge to emails with a link to your Personal Page.
  • Download the Facebook app and send updates to your networks via Facebook
    and Twitter.
  • Reach out to your wider network by uploading photos of your training rides to social media with a link to your personal page.

6. LIST YOUR POTENTIAL DONORS

  • Write down names of everyone you know.
  • Think outside the box—your local pizza shop owner, your gym instructor, etc.
  • Face-to-face meetings work best, especially for big asks.

7. FOLLOW UP

  • Don’t be afraid to follow up with your friends – most people are busy
    and it takes 3 times before they make a donation.
  • Thank those who donate and keep them updated.

BONUS: RAISE YOUR GOAL

  • The average Rider in Perth raises $4,000 – so aim high!
  • When you get within $250 of your goal, increase it!
  • You can get special perks by becoming an Ambassador or Polka Dot Jersey winner from going above and beyond!
