AHS Track Friends & Family Campaign
Hello AHS Track & Field Supporters,
We would love your help in fundraising for the new track at Ashland High! Besides your own donation, YOUR friends and family can be a key component to help us get to our goal and build the modern track our kids deserve. Therefore, we are providing you with info to launch your own “Friends & Family Outreach” campaign!
- Time is short - we need funds raised by June 30!
- Involve your kids – it will be a great learning experience and they’ll have a sense of ownership when they see the track they helped build.
HOW TO RAISE $1,000:
1. Make a list of all friends and family that you can ask for a donation. (Fundraising works best when you ask people you know! They’ll give because they care about you.)
2. Figure out the best way to connect with the people on your list. A personal email or postal letter from you or your student, followed up with a phone call may be the easiest. But you may know some people who just need the phone call or a knock on the door.
3. Assemble the materials you need to reach out. You can download most of the resources you should need. Edit the attached athlete and/or parent letter with your personal information; feel free to make them more personal if you’d like.
4. Ask for a generous donation. Friends and family won't mind you asking for money because they love and adore your kid and want the best for them. Love inspires!
5. Please start your personal Friends & Family Outreach ASAP. Encourage your donors to make their gift by the end of school, mid-June.
