The funds raised by you and through this event are essential in helping to fulfill Home Base’s mission to heal the invisible wounds for Veterans, Service Members and their Families. Below are tips and resources to help jumpstart your fundraising!
Rally Your Troops!
Ask your friends, family, co-workers, to join you in participating or to support you by making a donation. Share your reason for running, give updates and show the impact of your participation.
Make it Personal
Start a Conversation
Share the mission of Home Base with potential donors. You might be surprised who might thank you for the opportunity to learn more and make an impact.
Kick Off Your Fundraising
Ask, Ask, Ask!
Donations don’t always come from where you expect them, so cast a wide net and make each ask personal! Ask your friends and family to share your page on social media to support Veterans and their families.
Be creative and have fun with your posts! Make sure to tag or mention @HomeBaseProgram on social media and use the hashtag #RTHB20.
Say Thank You
Say thank you early and often, and show donors the impact they are having with updates on your progress. Help encourage others by saying thank you publicly as well – Facebook is great to recognize your donors!
Double Your Impact
Corporate matching gifts are a great way to double – and sometimes even triple – your impact! Check with your employer on your company’s matching gift policy, and encourage your donors to do the same.
