What am I Responsible for?
- As a Fundraiser, you're responsible for getting the word out about 401Gives, and encouraging support for your fundraiser and the organization that you are fundraising for!
- The nonprofit leaders for the organization you are supporting will likely have a goal in place that they are hoping to reach during 401Gives and you are responsible for helping them to reach that goal. You should set an individual goal for your fundraiser to let your friends and family know what portion of your organization's goal you are hoping to help achieve.
- Most importantly, you are responsible for having fun with your fundraising efforts and working to share enthusiasm and support for your organization and the causes and objectives you are helping to support. Create a fun video and colorful, passionate thank you message. These small gestures can go a long way for your organization's fundraising efforts!
