Best Practices: From the Community: Fundraising Tips

Recommended Posts

Tell people you're playing #ForTheKids

Connect with family, friends, neighbors and co-workers to let them know what you're doing! Surround yourself with people who believe in you and share your excitement about playing games and fundraising for Extra Life. Show them your serious! Consider telling grandma to donate to your Extra Life campaign instead of a birthday card! Tell your Aunt to skip the present and to help out local sick and injured kids with a donation. 


Have an Extra Life Party!

Invite friends over for a game night. You cover the drinks and snacks and then ask your pals to donate to your Extra Life page to "pitch in" #ForTheKids! Encourage your friends to join Extra Life and host THEIR own Extra Life parties too! 


Use Social Media

Share what you're doing for Extra Life on social media! We even have a Facebook application that can post for you periodically to your friends, letting them know how close you are to your goal and how they can donate!


Stream to Twitch (or Mixer, Facebook, YouTube...)

If you have the basics to live stream your video games via PC or console, then join thousands of other gamers as the stream #ForTheKids! need some help getting started? Check out our Streaming 101 guide!


Go Old School with a Craft Fair, Bake Sale or Auction!

Put your crafty-ness to work and make some cool crafts, bake an awesome pie or auction off your unused collectibles, all for donations! Yard sales are also a great way to give your campaign a bump. 


Engage with Local Businesses to Get Involved

Visit your favorite eateries and bars to engage them with opportunity to not only join Extra Life but to contribute a portion of the nights proceeds to your campaign. Karaoke, trivia nights, painting & cocktails events are all great ways to have fun, raise money and spread the word about Extra Life. 


*BONUS TIP: Go Mobile!
