3 Checklist for a Fundraiser This is a short checklist for your fundraising activity. It includes things for you to think about or do, before and after the activity. Tick off each point as you work your way through the list. Good luck! Why are you fundraising? Make sure you can explain the reason you are trying to raise money. Look on the Breast Cancer Now website to find out more information on their research: www. How will your sponsorship money be used? Make sure you have a good understanding of how the money will be spent. On the Breast Cancer Now website, there is lots of information about how your fundraising efforts will be used to fund further research. What is your fundraising activity / event? Choose an activity from the list of fundraising ideas, or visit, or come up with your own. How much money do you want to raise? Do you have a fundraising target in mind? Where and when will your fundraising take place? Make sure you are clear about the date, time and place of your activity. Let the right people know. Make sure everyone in school is aware of your fundraising. Hold a meeting with your school council / form tutor / head of house / head teacher if necessary, or create a poster to put up in school.

4 Checklist for a Fundraiser Do you need support / volunteers? Ask friends, parents and teachers to get involved if you need them. Make sure you have your parent s /guardian s /school s permission. Will you need an organising committee? If your activity involves a lot of people and a lot of organising, it s a good idea to bring together a group of people who can help you with decisions and organisation throughout the build up to the activity. What resources do you need? Do you need any equipment for your activity? Printing, sports equipment etc. Visit to order/download fundraising support materials, for example, collection box, balloons and posters.

Share information by using the school newsletter, website or put posters up around the school / local area. You could even use social media, such as Facebook and Twitter remember to use #wearitpink

5 Checklist for a Fundraiser Once you have completed your fundraising: I have cleared up. Make sure you have cleaned up after yourself and ensure there is no mess left in the school or wherever you carried out your activity! Thank your sponsors. Use the letter template in the student toolkit to thank everyone who sponsored you. Thank them for their donation and tell them how well you did. You could even write a short paragraph to go in your school newsletter. Send your sponsorship money to Breast Cancer Now.
