ShatterproofPowerFundraising-250x175

When you signed up to fundraise, you became a part of a community that’s dedicated to reducing the devastation that the disease of addiction causes to families.

To reach and inspire your own community, use your fundraising page tools to quickly recruit teammates, connect with potential donors, share your story, view your progress, and so much more. Here's how:

Step #1. Set Up Your Personal Web Page (and share your story)

It only takes a few minutes to transform your fundraising page into the homebase for all of your fundraising and event outreach.

After you login to your event page:

1. Select “Personalize Your Page”

Power Fundraising - Bring it Together on Your Fundraising Page - 01

2. Upload a profile photo

Power Fundraising - Bring it Together on Your Fundraising Page - V202

3a/b. Upload banner image and adjust placement (we recommend a photo of the person you’re honoring)

Power Fundraising - Bring it Together on Your Fundraising Page - 3a3b

4. Edit Message: This is the place to include a short story about the person you’re honoring or celebrating through your fundraiser. 

Power Fundraising - Bring it Together on Your Fundraising Page - 04

Example: “I'm walking in the Shatterproof [event name] in memory of Lisa’s amazing smile.”

5. Customize your URL (if it’s available, use your name or the name of the person you’re honoring)

After you save your page, preview it to see how it looks and make any further updates.

Step #2. Invite Friends to Join Your Team

Recruiting others to join your team takes just a few simple steps. Remember: The bigger your team (or support system), the bigger your impact. 

From your fundraising page:

Power Fundraising - Bring it Together on Your Fundraising Page - Invite Team Members
  1. Select “Create or Join a Team”
     
  2. Add a personal message
     
  3. Email away! 

Power Tip: Though our system offers pre-populated content, make your invitation more meaningful by including a short, personal intro. 

Example: “Hi Everyone! I know you all knew Lisa in high school. Well, I'm honoring her beautiful smile during this wonderful fundraising event. Will you join me?”
 

Step #3. Amplify Your Story with a Photo

If you’re honoring the memory of a loved one or celebrating someone in recovery, adding a photo brings their story to life. 

From your fundraising page:

Power Fundraising - Bring it Together on Your Fundraising Page - Amplify Photo
  1. Mouseover the banner (where #WEARESHATTERPROOF is in the background) then select “Upload Image”
     
  2. Choose an image from your computer/mobile device
     
  3. Position the photo and click the check mark to finish
     

Step #4. Ask Your Friends to Donate

Reach prospective donors quickly through pre-written email and social media posts. For email, send emails one at a time or import contacts from your favorite email client for even faster and greater reach.

From your fundraising page:

Power Fundraising - Bring it Together on Your Fundraising Page - Ask Friends
  1. Select “Promote via Email” or “Promote via Social Media”
     
  2. Follow the steps for your chosen outreach method


Pro tip: Those who customize their messages raise 4x more than those who don’t, so include a couple of sentences about your personal connection to the cause. Example: “As one of my closest friends, you’re familiar with Lisa’s story. She may have left the world behind, but I will never forget—just as I know you never will—the many wonderful moments we all shared. Join me in remembering her by making a donation today.”
