Airfare Giveaway

awb5k-2012-photo-gifHelp us to get to our goal!

In many ways this was the most emotional Walk for me this year marked the 20th anniversary since I lost my son John to AIDS. Since then, I have been walking to honor his life and to honor all of those who have died from AIDS. The money I raise allows me to help others like John and the awareness I raise, helps me educate youth. If I reach one person through my participation I will have attained what I set out to do.

The success of the Walk is essential to fund the programs and services to make my hope a reality. The Walk is close to hitting the goal of $1 million, but we still need to raise $60,000 to get there.

-Bette Byrnes

Follow up with your donors

You may have emailed your donors, but we suggest doing a round of follow-up (calls and emails) with anyone who pledged to support you or supported you in the past but hasn't yet made their gift. We are still collecting donations!

Matching Gifts

Matching Gifts are an incredible way to double or even triple your impact. Ask any of your donors if their employers will match the gift they already made, and see if your employer will match your donation or your fundraising.
