Fundraising Tips

Fundraising Tips


Make a face-to-face ask 

This is is the simplest and most direct way. Talk about your involvement in the Run to Feed the Hungry and then ask for a donation. A direct request like this often results in the largest donation. 

Send a fundraising e-mail 

It’s quick and easy and extremely effective. You can do it straight from your fundraising page.

Mail a fundraising letter 

You can create a fundraising letter by discussing Run to Feed the Hungry, Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services and your own details about why you are walking/running. 

Pick up the phone

This approach is almost as good as a face-to-face request. Let your donor know that for each $1 they donate, Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services provides $10 of goods and services directly to the Sacramento community.

Be sure to provide your donors with your Fund Raising ID # 

This ensures their donations will be credited to your page and make your thermometer rise.
