Are you a new fundraiser to AIDS Walk Colorado?
Get started by taking on the Red Ribbon Challenge and set an easy fundraising goal of $100!
Beginning a fundraising campaign can sometimes seem like an overwhelming experience. But, if you set an easily-attainable goal and break that goal down in to even simpler steps, you’ll find that fundraising is not only easy, but is also a fun way of connecting with people you know and getting them involved in a cause that you support.
Here’s an easy way to raise $100 in one day:
Look at it this way: Raising $100 would mean more meals served in the Food Bank; more free HIV tests administered so that people know their statuses; more transportation available to get to medical appointments; more counseling services offered to individuals dealing with new diagnoses or recent losses due to AIDS complications; and more education services to at-risk populations to decrease the number of new infections.
This is all possible, and easily done by taking on the Red Ribbon Challenge. It’s a challenge to get everyone you know to support what you believe in. It’s making a commitment to fighting AIDS in our community. It’s easy to do. It’s fun!
Remember; when you raise $100 or more, you receive the official commemorative AIDS Walk Colorado T-Shirt to wear with pride at the event and after, letting everyone you see know that you made a difference in the lives of people living with AIDS in our community.
Matching gifts are an easy and significant way to double your impact. Many companies offer a matching gift program for funds raised by their employees for events such as Walk For Life.
To start the process of doubling your impact, make a personal donation toward your fundraising efforts, and then contact your human resources department to see if your company matches gifts. If they match gifts, your HR representative can get you the appropriate paperwork that you'll need. If your company doesn't have a matching gifts program, ask them to start one! Colorado AIDS Project is a 501(c)(3) organization, and most donations qualify as charitable contributions and are tax deductible.
