Fundraising Tools

As a Team Up participant, you have joined a special group who has made a commitment to raise funds to support Autism Speaks. The funds you raise will enhance lives today while accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow.

In addition to participating in a challenging event that will require dedicated training, your fundraising success is contingent on a great plan.  Ask everyone you know including family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, school and religious organizations and more if they will help support you in raising funds for Autism Speaks!

Below are some tips to help you be successful.

  • Customize your personal fundraising page with a photo and personal story of why you have chosen to raise funds to support the autism community.
  • Ask everyone you know including family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, school and religious organizations and more if they will help support you in raising funds for Autism Speaks!
  • Launch a Facebook fundraiser through your Participant Center as an extension of your personal fundraising efforts.
  • Ask donors if their company has a matching gifts program. This is a wonderful way to double your donations quickly!
  • Thank your donors and show your appreciation of their support!
