How to Raise Funds and Fun!

Everyone has their favorite way to fundraise. For some people, directly contacting friends and family is a tried and true method. Others prefer to hold fundraisers through their social media outlets and some enjoy the "give a little, get a little" style of fundraising that comes with bake sales. There is no wrong way to fundraise. Just do what works best for you and your network.

Some techniques that have worked for past Walk-N-Roll teams include:

  • emailing friends, family, and co-workers - use your page link!
  • holding a Facebook fundraiser--it's easy!
  • asking local businesses to support your team (see info below)
  • having a event -- one of our teams has an annual Cruisin' for a Cause car show and another team has a Spa Day!
  • other ideas include -- bake sale, jewelry sale, pizza party, barbecue, or wine night with painting or pottery
  • working with a restaurant to donate a portion of sales during set hours such as Perkins (see flyer), Panera, Pizza Ranch, & Chipotle

  • talking to people in your community about why supporting the Spina Bifida Association SBA is important to you,
  • sharing a skill you have with others (ex. hosting a spin class, teaching an informal paint night, or playing music)
  • collaborating with a local professional willing to donate time and talent (ex. Zumba instructor or local musician)
