5 STEPS TO A SUCCESSFUL FUNDRAISER

Make Your SportCoups Fundraiser Page Look Its Best

  • Use a good picture of yourself playing your current sport for which you’re raising funds
  • OR, use a good picture of yourself in your team uniform
  • Add your school or organization logo
  • Write a personal message to your potential donors explaining why their donations are needed and appreciated
  • Include a call to action like “Donate today!”
