Now that you've registered (if you haven't yet you can click the register button above) it's time to start collecting pledges! We know that fundraising can be intimidating, so we want to help you out! Here are some tips and ideas to help get you on your way to meeting your goals!

  • Start by pledging to yourself
  • Set a reasonable goal
    Start simple, set a goal to raise $200 - $500. When you reach that goal you can always up it!
  • Tell a story
    Not all of us are comfortable asking for money, try starting a conversation about the ACO and how adoption and/or our work has affected you!
  • Send personalized emails
    Social media is a fun way to keep in touch – but the personalized ask will have the biggest impact.
  • Share your progress
    Regular updates will actively involve your supporters and encourage donations!

You can do all this and more by logging into your personal fundraising page. To login, click here.

Who should I ask for donations?

Ask anyone! Start with friends and family, move to co-workers and neighbors. Spread the word with members of your clubs, groups, religious and community centers. Don’t leave out the kids, ask your kids’ sports teams to pool all their pocket change for a donation!
