Fundraising 101

The #1 reason people give is because they are asked. Don't be shy, the worst someone will do is tell you no, at best, they will give you more than you expected!  Be excited! People will feed off of your enthusiasm.

Know your facts.   Be able to talk about how Easterseals (learn more) and The NASCAR Foundation (learn more) support children with special healthcare needs.  People give because they are asked, because they care and because the person doing the asking is enthusiastic and passionate about their cause.

Fundraising Ideas

  • Building Floor Sponsors and Donations
    Divide the number of floors in the International Motorsports Center building into your minimum amount raised
    • Example: $1000/8 floors, $125 pledge per floor
  • Foot Sponsors
    Same as floors, except use the height of the building in feet
    • Example: $1000/102 feet, ~$10 per foot
  • Corporate Matching/Matching Gifts
    Many companies will match charitable contributions their employees make. See if your company will match your donations or the total funds you raise. If they only match employee giving, get as many of your co-workers to give as possible.
  • Corporate Donations
    Don't forget you can ask area businesses to support you. 
  • Office Campaigns
    You can put together some mini-fundraisers to benefit your cause
    • Bake sale - sell cookies at your desk
    • BBQ fundraiser (charge for lunch or ask for donations)
    • Baskets - keep a donation plate on your desk or in a common area
    • Challenge - have a peer in another department go Over the Edge with you and see who can raise the most money, or whoever raises the most has to go Over the Edge. For execs, challenge other departments or challenge an exec from another company!
