We are working hard to ensure healthy air for all Americans, and a brighter future for all that are affected by lung disease. But we can’t do it without your help. Every step, every dollar is essential to support research, programs and advocacy efforts.
Here are some surefire tips to help kick your fundraising efforts into high gear:
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 with prospective donors.
Download the App: Available for Apple and Android devices, the LUNG FORCE app is an easy way to update your personal page, send pre-crafted donation requests, check your fundraising progress, and track your miles (new!) all from the palm of your hand. Check out our LUNG FORCE Run/Walk App Guide. Track your miles(if hosting your own run/walk) all from the palm of your hand. Check out our LUNG FORCE Run/Walk App Guide. This app has lots of useful tools whether you’re a runner, walker, or ambassador!
Get Social: Create a Facebook Fundraiser to let everyone know about your participation in the LUNG FORCE Turquoise Takeover. Also, check out our How To Create A Facebook Fundraiser Guide to start you on your way!
Ask for Company Support: 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.
LUNG FORCE Incentives
Anyone who raises $100, by May 31st, will receive a commemorative LUNG FORCE t-shirt. Individuals that raise $500+ and teams that raise $1,000+ by May 15th will get their name printed on the back of all event shirts.
If you prefer to forgo your incentive to ensure all of your donations go to support research, education and advocacy efforts, you can decline your gift post-event.
