Share with Friends

Peer-based fundraising can have a huge impact for Thanks Mom & Dad Fund by connecting us to new supporters and donors who believe, as you do, in showing solidarity with older adults who need it most. 

Please use these resources to help you reach out to your networks. Below are some easy steps to get started! 

  1. Set your Goal: We suggest $500. You can set the goal you are most comfortable with. Don't worry, if you exceed your goal, you can increase it and raise more funds! 

  2. Tell your story: Are you raising money in honor of a loved one? Perhaps you have a mentor or someone else who has inspired you. Share why you want to say "Thanks A Million". Perhaps you are concerned about the number of older adults on waiting lists for critical services. Share with your networks why you want to help older adults. 

  3. Share with your networks: Use social media, emails, texting, and of course, phone calls to ask your friends and colleagues to help. 

  4. Thank donors: A quick thank you to all of the donors to your campaign will go a long way. Thanks Mom & Dad Fund will take care of all the tax documentation for donors, but you can thank supporters as well. 

  5. Have fun!
