Ways to Fundraise
Fundraising is an integral part of your Shatterproof Rise Up Against Addiction 5K Walk/Run event experience. The funds you raise will directly support our work to ensure that every American with a substance use disorder has access to treatment that’s based on proven research. Your donations will help save lives!

Here are some great ways to increase your fundraising potential. Let’s get started! 

#1: Update Your Fundraising Page 
If you want people to donate to your Shatterproof campaign, tell them why this cause is important to you. Are you rising up against addiction to honor a lost loved one or to celebrate a loved one’s recovery? Use this page to really express yourself. Your Shatterproof My HQ Dashboard is an easy way to do this.

1. Log in to your Shatterproof 5K “My HQ” and select “Personalize Your Page.”

  1. 2. In the “Edit My” box on your personal page, click “Welcome Message” to change the general Shatterproof message to your personal “Rise Up Against Addiction with Me” message.
3. Click the green box with the + symbol on your personal page to add video or images. 

5. Change the generic background photo by hovering over the image. A “Select campaign image” box and “Update image” box will come up.

Bonus Tip: Adding photos and videos makes your page even more personal and helps tell your story to your donors.
#2: Set a Goal 
Set a specific goal of how much money you’d like to raise. Make sure you set a realistic deadline for yourself as well. 
1. From your My HQ, click “Update Your Goal” or click the “Goal” icon from your personal page.
2. Enter your goal and hit “Save.”
#3: Make a Donation 
You’ve set a goal. Now what? Show your potential donors that you’re serious about making a difference by contributing to the cause yourself. 

1. Click “Donate to Own Goal” from My HQ.
2. Enter your donation amount in the pop up box and click “Donate.”
#4: Reach Out to Your Friends
Your “My HQ” dashboard makes it easy for your loved ones to become donors. You can easily craft an email to family and friends asking them to help you shatter the stigma of addiction. Or Tweet or post an update any time you want about your Shatterproof campaign to let your social network know you’re involved. 

1. From your My HQ, click “Fundraise via Email” 
2. Create an email to send to potential donors.
Social Media
1. From your My HQ, click “Fundraise via Social Media” 
2. Create a post to share with potential donors.

3. Don't use the "Create Fundraiser" feature on Facebook because your donations won’t be counted right away. Simply use your Shatterproof URL/fundraising page to manage your donations. And be sure to tell your potential donors to contribute funds through your personal page too, instead of Facebook.

Bonus Tip: To automatically share new activity as it happens, connect your social networks and spread the word through auto-posting. Simply click on Social Auto-Post from My HQ. Feel free to change or update your auto-posting settings at anytime.
