Fundraising “The 3-Day Way”
Fundraising “The 3-Day Way” is a method, and a mindset, that has worked for thousands of walkers. We teach you how to “ask big” in a way that makes fundraising easier than you ever thought it could be.
Write an Email or Letter Campaign
We provide sample fundraising appeals that will help you craft that perfect message in 10 minutes or less. Emails you send through our website automatically contain a link back to your personal fundraising webpage. Many walkers reach their fundraising goals just by sending emails to everyone in their address book.
Plan a Fundraising Party
A simple night in with drinks and snacks can turn into a fundraising success, with the help of our inspirational video that you can show to your guests. There won’t be a dry eye in the house.
Yard sales, car washes, bake sales - we’ve seen it all! Team “Tutus for Tatas” brought in $20,000 with a golf tournament and $25,000 with a fashion show and luncheon.
There is strength in numbers, especially when it comes to fundraising. Form or a join a team and you’ll have plenty of support to organize fundraising events or ask for corporate donations.
Your Personal Fundraising Webpage Will Help You Tell Your Story
Customize it with a photo and your story to increase the impact. With a few clicks, your donors can give online directly to your fundraising account.
The 3-Day community opens its arms to new walkers. Our online message boards and fundraising ideas library provide a venue to share successes and get new ideas.
