How to write a good fundraising story

Everyone has different reasons for fundraising and different ways of doing it. Writing and sharing your story to let people know what you are doing and why will make people feel more connected with the cause and donate more. Here are a few suggestions to help you write a great story...

Why the DEC?
Let people know why the DEC is raising money, who their donation will help and why raising funds is so urgent. Explain why the cause is important to you. Include links to the DEC website and social media pages so people can see the important work they can help to fund.

What are you doing?
Include an explanation of exactly what your challenge or event will involve and what you will need to do to succeed. Explain why you have chosen to fundraise in this way and try to include your motivations and inspirations if you can.

What does their support mean?
Let everyone know what their support will mean to you personally. Tell them how much their encouragement will mean and how important it is to you that they are involved. Take the opportunity to thank your supporters in advance and make them feel appreciated.
