It is open NOW and we will close it on October 7!

Hi everyone!

I have finally got all of my ducks in a row and it is now time for our fundraiser!  It is open NOW and we will close it on October 7!  Let’s hit our goal of $500 per player!  Social Media is a great way to get the information out, as well as emails!  Directions below.  Please let me know how I may help.

Thank you!
Kris

Each team member can make his own fundraising page, it only takes a few minutes! Please follow the directions below.

**If you do not want to make your own fundraising page you can still participate! Please see information below marked, “How to participate without making my own fundraising page.”

DIRECTIONS FOR MAKING FUNDRAISING PAGE

1. Go to www.crowdrise.com/weareone2018

2.  Click "Join the Team"

3. If you don't already have a Crowdrise account, it will prompt you to enter your name, email address and a password of your choosing. 

If you already have a Crowdrise account, sign in and follow directions below.

4. A "Join the Team" box will pop up. Click, "Join the Team".

5. From here you can edit the page that has been created to meet your needs.

  • Click on your initials (in upper right hand corner).
  • My Campaign.
  • Scroll/Hover over the text box with mouse & click edit.

6. To customize your personal page and share: in upper right click on the circle with your initials and choose 'Profile'

    • share a bit of your player's story
  • Manage your page from here:

Goal is $500 per player!

At first it seems like there is a lot to do here and a lot of information here. Play around a bit on the site/page and it will make sense fairly quickly.  

VERY IMPORTANT:

Once you have set-up your fundraising page. Please compose a personal email to family and friends and send it to them from your personal email account. Not only will family and friends be more willing to open an email from you (rather than one from Crowdrise) but they will be more apt to donate when you ask nicely in your own words.

In your email, make sure to tell everyone that you have a goal of raising $500, encourage everyone to watch our video, look through the photos, and read our story. Also, ask everyone to share this fundraiser with their friends, and their friends, and their friends. The more our campaign is shared the better chance we have of meeting our goal. If you have Facebook, the link to the Crowdrise page can also be shared there. And, of course, don't forget to thank everyone for their support!

“How to participate without making my own fundraising page.”

Compose an email to your family/friends telling them how much your football program means to you, why they should support your football program, include a link to our CROWDRISE page and send it out to as many family and friends as possible! There is a sample email below for your reference.

**Don’t forget to send a reminder email, or two, a week or so after your initial email reminding people to donate and thanking those that already have.
