Fundraising Tips

Looking for more resources to help get your fundraising jump started? Look no further!

  1. We encourage bowlers to use our online event tools.  It's a quick, easy way to collect donations. 
  2. People who edit their website to talk about why they are raising money for Big Brothers Big Sisters raise a lot more money.  It only takes a few minutes to add a picture and a few words.  Tell the world why Big Brothers Big Sisters is important to you.
  3. Email friends or share your page on Facebook to ask people to support you.  And don't forget about letters, phone calls, and face-to-face asks. 
  4. Get creative! Some bowlers host a bake sale, car wash, or lemonade stand to raise money.  Need more help? Give us a call! We're happy to brainstorm a few ideas with you!
  5. Download the Pledge Sheet if you plan to collect cash or check donations.  You can mail checks to us at 788 N. Jefferson St. #600, Milwaukee, WI 53202 or email [email protected] to arrange curbside drop-off of your donations.  We will have your online totals.
  6. Say THANK YOU! Thank your team members for their time and commitment to participate! Don’t forget to say thank you to the people who donated to you! Call or e-mail them after the event to let them know how much money your team raised and thank them for supporting local children!
