Fundraising Tips & Incentives

With more than 35 million people affected by lung disease in the US, each and every dollar raised will support lung disease research, educational programs and advocacy efforts. We need your help today to ensure there is a future free of lung disease with healthy air to breathe!

Want to know how to get the most out of your online fundraising efforts? Follow these steps to success:

  • Make a Donation and Ask Friends & Family to Match It: When you make a personal donation, any amount you're comfortable with, you are demonstrating your commitment to the cause and it will encourage others to donate with confidence.
  • Make it Personal: If you have a personal reason for participating, share your story on your personal page and send to prospective donors.
  • Download the App: Available for Apple and Android devices, the Cycle For Air app is an easy way to update your personal page, send pre-crafted donation requests, check your fundraising progress, plus so much more all from the palm of your hand.
  • Use our Fundraising Tools: If you're stuck or need some cycle materials, help is just a click or phone call away. Go to your Participant Center or contact your events staff.
  • Employer Matched Gifts: Many companies offer matching gift programs in which the company will match an employee's contribution to a charitable organization. Contact your human resources department or use our matching gift tool to find out if your workplace qualifies.
