Fundraising

This year we’ve made fundraising easier than ever before!

Every host will get their own fundraising page which your friends and family can easily donate to. All you need to do is share the link or display your page on a laptop or tablet during your event.

 

Your fundraising page

When you register for Girls’ Night In, a fundraising page will be created for you. You can edit your page to include the name of your event and all the important information about the night for your guests.

Your fundraising page is the easiest way to collect donations for your event. Your guests can donate directly to your page and any funds collected on the night can be added as an offline donation in your fundraising dashboard.

 

Set a fundraising goal

Remember that no amount is too small when you’re contributing to a cancer free future! Knowing how much you’re hoping to raise will give your friends a sense of how much they should donate to help you.

 

Spread the word

Sharing your fundraising page through social media and email is a great way to inspire donations. What a great way to fundraise before and after your event, so you can kick back and have fun with the girls on the night!

Ask your guests if they’d share your page too. Unfortunately, cancer touches everyone at some point, so you’d be amazed at how many friends and family members will want to support you.

 

Approach your employer

Ask your employer to match the amount you raise at your event and double your fundraising total.

You’ll never know if you don’t ask! Many employers are happy to match-give, so why not give it a try?

 

Involve local businesses

Find some local businesses that could supply raffle prizes or items for auction. Approach businesses well in advance of your event as they might take a while to get back to you.

 

Highlight the cause

Don’t be afraid to share your personal story and tell your guests about your passion for a cancer free future. Unfortunately, most people have been touched by cancer in some way, so you’d be surprised at how many people will want to support you.

Read the stats about women’s cancers to include in your message – show them why their support is so important!

Jennifer's story

Jennifer with a friend at her first Girls' Night In

"You have to think of it as a collective. The past events I’ve had didn’t raise a huge amount of money – a few hundred dollars in the end. It all helps, and sure, our little piece of it might not feel like it does much, but it all contributes to the bigger pot.”
