Challenge Accepted! How many of these 3-Day Fundraising Challenges have you tried?

Back in February, we started occasionally posting Fundraising Challenges on the Susan G. Komen 3-Day® Facebook and Twitter pages. These prompts are meant to give a little (or not-so-little) spark to your Komen 3-Day fundraising efforts from week to week, and get your own juices flowing for other creative fundraising strategies.

In case you missed any of the 3-Day® Fundraising Challenges, or want to revisit ones that worked well for you earlier, we’ve listed them all below. Happy fundraising!

  • CHALLENGE! Raise $100 by the end of the day. How will you do it? GO!
  • Let’s kick off the week with a #FundraisingChallenge! Today, your goal is to score donations from three different people. What’s your plan of attack?
  • Time for today’s #3DayFundraising Challenge! Share this post on your newsfeed, and challenge someone to be the first to make a donation in the amount of the time. For example: we’re posting this at 8:30 a.m. PST – we’d need someone to make an $8.30 donation. Report back with how you did!
  • Do you need a little help getting started with fundraising? We know that sometimes the first step is the hardest. We challenge you to share your fundraising link on Facebook today and ask for a donation, because we believe you can do this. #3DayFundraising
  • Today’s #3DayFundraising Challenge is in honor of Administrative Professional’s Day. Your challenge? Asking someone you work with for a donation. Let us know how you did!
  • Happy Birthday! To who, you ask? There has to be someone in your group of friends that will donate in honor of a special person’s May birthday. For today’s #Fundraising Challenge, ask for a donation in honor of a May birthday. Cake not included.
  • Today is 5/31. Can you score five $31 donations in honor of a memorable May? #The3Day
  • Take this allegedly unlucky day (Friday the 13th!) and turn it into a lucky one. Ask someone to make it your lucky day today with a 3-Day donation!
  • Today’s Fundraising Challenge? All about the weather! Ask for donations today to help you raise whatever the temperature is in your area. You might even have someone donate the whole amount!
  • Are you ready for today’s Fundraising Challenge? It’s $50 Friday, so ask your friends to support you with $50 donations. It’s a great time to remind them that they can split that $50 into payments (up to 4) if they’d like. Go post it now, then come back later to tell us how you did!
  • It’s Thirty Thursday! No, we didn’t make a typo, we meant to say Thirty! Today, your fundraising challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to ask for three $30 donations. Do it, and report back!

Got a suggestion for a Fundraising Challenge that we could throw out to the 3-Day community? Tell us in comments!
