Make sure to let your friends, family, colleagues and network know that 100% of the money you raise will go directly to Recipe for Success Foundation.

Cast a wide net! Email people you haven’t connected with in a while, make phone calls and ask relatives to share your fundraising page with their networks. You’d be surprised at how many people are interested in helping out, even if you haven’t connected with them in a while.

Make a big ask. Don’t be afraid to ask for large amounts from different individuals. If you don’t ask, you’ll never know if the answer could have been “yes!” When it comes to fundraising, the more you’re willing to ask for, the more money you’re likely to raise.

Utilize social media. Get on every outlet you’re a part of and share, share, share, Repetition is key.

Share a heartfelt story. Do you have a personal reason for wanting to help us fight childhood obesity and support Veterans as they enter our training program to become farmers? Share it with your network. A personal story gives people who know you an even bigger reason to contribute.

Give to yourself. If people know that you support your own mission, they’ll be more likely to support it, too.

Make special occasions a time to give a gift to your cause. Do you have a birthday or anniversary coming up? Ask friends on social media to consider making a contribution to your VegOut! campaign in lieu of a gift.
