Dust off that stack of old board games in your closet and have a blast while helping raise funds for the cause!
Pick a date and location. Anywhere from your living room, to a park, community center or school will work!
Set a fundraising goal. You can meet your goal by charging a price-per-game, a flat fee to enter or simply by asking for free-will donations.
Create a TeamEdith page. Personalize a TeamEdith fundraising page with your own words, photos and videos. Tell everyone what drives your passion for the fight against breast cancer.
Get the word out. Share your TeamEdith page through social media and email. You’ll be surprised how willing people are to donate and/or attend your event when they see that their friends are passionate about something.
Share your passion for the cause. Find a way tell your guests about the cause and why you’re supporting Edith Sanford.
Collect donations. Collect cash, checks or have a computer or tablet available for people to make online gifts.
Tally donations. Please use our collection form to record and tally your fundraising. Mail the form and funds to us, and we’ll make sure every dollar goes to work finding the cures.
Say thank you! Everyone likes to hear those magic words, so don’t forget to thank your guests, donors and/or volunteers and tell them about the impact they made. Again, social media is a great tool to publicly show gratitude while also generating interest in Edith Sanford’s approach to breast cancer.
Have prizes donated. Add multiple ways to win prizes so that everyone has a chance (i.e., most games won, least games won, best team sport, donated the most money, etc.).
Offer concessions. If your event is large enough, you may choose to sell baked goods or other snacks donated by sponsors or volunteers.
Think beyond board games. Consider video games, lawn games, table tennis or anything else you think people will enjoy.
Remember, there’s no one right way to host an amazing fundraiser for Edith Sanford. Feel free to adapt these ideas to create an event that’s as unique as you are!
