Your personal fundraising page
Maximize your fundraising efforts with your own personal web fundraising page!
It's never been easier to raise money online. Once you register for the Canadian Cancer Society's Taking Steps Against Breast Cancer online fundraising website, you'll have access to fundraising tools to help you get the word out about your efforts. Your site registration e-mail will include a link to your Participant centre and instructions on how to customize your personal fundraising page.
Include a personal photo
Be sure to include your photograph and personal message on your page. You can then send custom e-mails to your friends and family and invite them to support you in the event and donate to the cause. When they visit the site, they can use our secure online system to pledge you with their credit card. They will then receive an official electronic tax receipt by e-mail.
Tell your story
The most compelling fundraising pages offer personal stories. You may want to include some information on why you have chosen to get involved with the Taking Steps Against Breast Cancer in support of the Canadian Cancer Society, or you might provide a history of how much money you have raised to date. The choice is yours! The best advice is to personalize your page with a photo and give your friends and family compelling reasons to support your efforts. You'll be glad you did. In fact, on average, online event participants who use their personal fundraising page and e-mail tools raise twice as much as offline participants, and take less time to do it.
Collect offline pledges too
If you would like to gather pledges in person, your event coordinator can provide you with the tools to do so. Receipts will be mailed to donors who make a donation in person.
