Birthday Fundraising

Doing a birthday fundraiser for myTEAM TRIUMPH is a powerful way to support our mission.  Your family and friends will love support your efforts.  

We've found that the most impactful tool for this type of fundraising is to do a Facebook Birthday fundraiser.  The average fundraiser on Facebook raises $250!  Check out the steps below on how to set up your page in just a few easy steps.  If you prefer not to use Facebook, you can set up a fundraising page through our Kindful platform HERE.

Creating a Facebook Birthday Fundraiser
  1. Two weeks before your birthday, Facebook will send you a notification inviting you to set up a fundraising page.  You can click that notification, search for "myTEAM TRIUMPH Wisconsin" and follow the steps to create a page.  OR, if you prefer to you can simply click THIS LINK to set up your fundraising page on Facebook 

  2. Once you've set up your page, customize your story.  Add text of why you are fundraising for mTT

  3. Add a powerful cover image.  If you've raced with us, use a personal one.  Or download our Facebook birthday fundraiser cover image.

That's in!  It's that easy. Now you're off and running!

Facebook Birthday Fundraiser Tips and Tricks
  1. Set a big but achievable goal.  Remember you can always raise it.  We recommend around $250

  2. Invite!  Use the invite feature within your page to ask your family and friends to support you

  3. Share the link to your Facebook fundraiser via email and text

  4. Host an in person event to supplement your online efforts

  5. Update.  Updates are powerful.  It's another way to give an inspiring nudge to anyone who you've invited to give who hasn't yet and to celebrate with those who have.  Here's some ways you can update in your fundraising page...

    1. Post updates within your fundraiser regularly.  

    2. Post about your progress, share stories from our mission.  

    3. Do a live video inside your fundraiser.  You can do this during mTT training runs, races or even when you feel like you have a great story to tell.

    4. Feel free to use any of our inspirational photos we've collected

  6. Thank.  When someone donates to your page, thank them!  PRO TIP - Thank with a post.  Share your fundraising page and mention the individual who donated.  This will not only thank them for their gift but also keep spreading the word about your campaign
