Two Important Things to Think About

When it comes to fundraising, the first donation is super important so make sure that you've got your biggest supporters lined up to make a generous donation as soon as the page is live and that'll encourage others to contribute too.

Set the bar high and you'll be amazed how much you can raise!

Secondly, try and make a personal connection when you're reaching out to potential supporters. Tell them the human story behind why you're fundraising for The Bike Project.

Here are a few 'ways in' to telling your fundraising story:

  • What inspired you to raise money and what made you choose The Bike Project?
  • What does seeking asylum or refuge mean to you?
  • What does cycling and the freedom of the humble bicycle mean to you?
  • Are you raising funds in memory of a loved one?
