Tips for successful fundraising

Tell your story – people are more likely to sponsor you if they know why you’re completing the challenge. What does the work of ACE IT mean to you, and what will their money do?

Spread the word – promote your fundraising page on social media and ask your sponsors to share after donating. Get friends, family and colleagues to donate and tell their networks too! Don’t forget to tag @aceitscotland when posting online.
