Fundraising Tips

We know that normal fundraising techniques will be hard this year. Here are some creative ideas to make fundraising "fun"raising!

  • Set up a Facebook Fundraiser
  • Write a personal letter to send to friends, family, and neighbors. Let them know what you are doing and why you are riding.
  • Make giving easy - When writing your letters, include a self-addressed stamped envelope or a link to your direct fundraising page.
  • Take your letter to local businesses to see if they will sponsor your ride.
  • Send an email to your friends and family letting them know how to donate to your ride online.
  • Remember to write a personal thank you note to all your sponsors.
  • Offer to do chores around the house in exchange for a contribution to your ride
  • Walk your neighbor’s dog for a contribution (while following all public health regulations and guidelines).
  • Have your family put all their loose change into a donation jar

How Your Fundraising Adds Up

Donate Online

Each PMC Kids Ride participant has his or her own online fundraising page. PMC Kids Ride registration is completed as a family and the adult completing registration will have the option to set up a family fundraising page (ideal for families with more than one child participating in a PMC Kids Ride) in addition to each rider's fundraising page.

Each rider has a donation page and a profile page where photos and information about why they're riding and fundraising can be shared.

Families are encouraged to share these links by email and on social media to solicit donations for the PMC Kids Ride.
