FUNDRAISING

Fundraising for Mother’s Heart is an incredible way for you to share the great need to support pregnant women and their children in Cambodia.

At Mother’s Heart, we need to raise over US$350,000 every year to continue to keep our doors open and serve young mothers, their children and mediate with their families and communities. 

Ready to support us?

3. Shout out: promote your event 

Word of mouth 

Don't undervalue how powerful word of mouth is. It will be your ultimate marketing tool. Tell your friends, family, colleagues and your congregation about your fundraising and get them to spread the word about Mother's Heart.

 

Unleash your inner artist 

You can download some posters to customize hereIf you feel like getting creative, we can  join our design team on Canva. Just send us an email with your name, email address and the type of design you have in mind .

Use your local media 

Read these articles from KnowHowNonProfit, Causevox, BetterFundraisingIdeas and WinspireMe to help you write a great press release. You can contact us for some advice too.

Contact your local paper explaining what you're up to. You can also contact your local radio stations to push for a plug on air. Why not approach your local TV news teams to see if they'll cover your story?

Raise awareness about our cause and enjoy your moment of fame!

Use social media 

Social networking sites such as Facebook are great tools when it comes to promoting a fundraising event - check out our social media guide for some helpful tips. Use all the contacts in your email address book and encourage online friends to share your event with others. Some great advice from JustGiving.

Get support from a local business 

You can start by asking permission to advertise your event there (with one of your amazing posters).

Ask if their business to sponsor you is a great way to advertise your event and keep your costs down. Try and talk to the manager in person or over the phone as opposed to in an email or letter.

Raise awareness 

This is paramount. If people know the vision behind your fundraising and the difference their donation makes in women's lives, they'll be much more likely to support you. Show them our shopping list in US$ and AU$ (below), and tell them one of our stories!

A picture says a thousand words 

Use photos throughout your publicity to personalise your event and attract more attention. You can download some of our pictures below!

Make sure someone is lined up to take snaps on the day of your fundraiser too - this will be a big help when it comes to collecting donations. Read tips for taking a great photo at your event.

Do things by the book 

Please include the following statements across all publicity materials:
All proceeds/profits will be donated to Mother's Heart. 
Mother's Heart is a Cambodian Non-Governmental Organization registered in the Kingdom of Cambodia.
Mother's Heart is part of the Child-Safe Alliance
