Top 5 Fundraising Tips



Take off with a bang. Start your fundraising right away and you’ll be more likely to meet or even exceed your goal—and make a bigger impact for our patients.

First-timer? Don’t be afraid to set your sights high—we challenge you to raise $250 and earn your first fundraising prize.

Experienced go-getter? We challenge you not just to reach your goal, but exceed it! If you reach your goal before the race, consider raising it to make an even bigger impact. You’ll qualify for special prizes when you hit fundraising milestones! In addition, prizes are available to our top three individual and team fundraisers.


#2: Share your story with everyone you know

Ask friends, family, and colleagues for their support, and share your personal motivation in fundraising for our hospital.

We’ve made the process easy. Check out the list of people you should contact (PDF). Send emails from your personal Scamper page using our templates (below) or customize your own.

Don’t forget to follow, like, and share us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, or your blog to spread the word.


#3: Double your gift!

Many employers are generous in matching gifts to 501(c)3 non-profit organizations. Ask your friends and family if their companies do the same.

If you would like your fundraising page to be updated with your matching gift, please email us at

#4: Update your supporters

Log in to your personal Scamper page often to see your progress, send reminder emails, and thank the people who have supported you.

#5: Create or join a fundraising team

Gather friends and family members to support our hospital. There are two ways to be part of a team:
1. Form your own team and become team captain. Recruit friends, family, and colleagues to join you.
2. Find an existing team and become their newest member. 

If you have already registered as an individual, but now wish to join a team, log into your personal Scamper page. Below the fundraising thermometer on your Scamper page, there will be a yellow box that says, “You are currently fundraising individually. Do you want to create or join a team?” Click the yellow button to “Create or Join Team” and follow the steps.  

Your personal Scamper page has everything you need to reach and EXCEED your fundraising goal. Contact family and friends using these templates.
