Watch this short video from 2017 NY Ride honoree Ruth Messinger for some fundraising encouragement!
Although fundraising may seem intimidating at first, you probably know more people than you realize. To start your fundraising, you need to first make a list of who you will ask. And remember, people don’t give to support causes as much as they give to support people: your friends, family, and colleagues will donate to your ride because YOU are riding.
Start by sending some emails and posting on social media and follow up in a couple of weeks.
