On May 2 & 3, 2019, Bridger Ski Foundation will join other local nonprofits in a 24-hour campaign to raise $1.5 million for local nonprofits. This is a chance to donate to BSF and your other favorite organizations.
This year, we're making it personal. BSF board members, athletes, parents, and friends are signing on to fundraise on behalf of BSF. Every donation matters, and we have a big goal: to raise $36,000 in 24 hours. (Last year, we raised $21,895.)
It’s easy. Sign up below. On May 2 or 3, send a quick email or post on social media and tell people why BSF is important. Give them a link to your Give Big fundraising page. Raise money! Get a hat. (Maybe win a season's pass.)
Get 10 people to donate at least $10 to BSF through your fundraising page and receive a limited edition trucker hat with art by Rachel Pohl. (And we'll have a cool alternative for those of you who've already earned one!)
Raise $500: For every $500 dollars you raise, you’ll get one entry into a raffle to win a SEASON’S PASS to Bridger Bowl. (Thank you, Bridger Bowl!) The only people in this raffle will be peer-to-peer fundraisers for BSF--so the odds are good!
1. SIGN UP. Anyone can sign up to fundraise for BSF at https://www.givebiggv.org/organizations/bridger-ski-foundation (then click on the green FUNDRAISE button).
Having trouble? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. YOUR FUNDRAISING PAGE. Personalize your fundraising page, if you want. Set a goal for yourself.
3. May 2 & 3 - MAKE AN ASK. Ask friends and family to donate to BSF. Email them the link to your fundraising page so you get credit for their donations. Share the link on social media.
Donations made to your page will automatically be applied to BSF's Give Big total and will also be eligible for Give Big prizes and matching funds.
It's not. Give Big is all about giving back to the nonprofits that support our community. Giving is fun. Really. And people feel GOOD after they give. All you need to do is tell someone why BSF matters and why BSF deserves support. The rest is up to them.
Our athletes who participated last year did a fantastic job just sending a simple email to their family and friends. And it worked!
And don't worry, BSF will lend you some support. We'll even send you a sample email you can send out.
Whether you raise $10, $500, and/or roll your own piggy bank savings into a donation, you're making a difference and you're part of something bigger. We can't wait to see what this community does on May 2 & 3!
