4 Tips on How to Give the Perfect Pitch While Fundraising
Speaking to groups or talking to someone over coffee about your Greenheart Travel program is a great way to start building support for your fundraising efforts. Here are 4 guidelines for giving the perfect pitch:
- Know your audience. Are you speaking to a friend, a professor, a family member or a business professional? Remember to focus on what would interest your audience!
- Be enthusiastic. Share why you are excited about traveling abroad. Involve your audience in your pitch by asking questions about your destination country. See what they know already! Then tell them some more fun facts.
- Keep it Short. Don’t overwhelm with too much information at once. Instead share a short overview, some photos, and explain how they can get involved in supporting you in this amazing opportunity.
- Follow up. Email your new contacts in less than week, reminding them how they know you, thanking them for their time and support and providing more information on how they can help support your fundraising efforts.
