An easy way to fundraise is to reach out to close friends and family. We know that it can sometimes be uncomfortable to ask people for money so to make this as easy as possible we have written a sample template that you can fill out and send to people. Also, make sure to Bcc Choi when you send it out to friends and family!
Sample Outreach Template
Hi everyone! As you all know, camp is a very significant part of my life. My (number of summers) summers at camp have allowed me to break out of my shell and find comfort in who I am. From camp, I have gained a support system that has helped me grow and push myself to be the person I am today.
This experience has provided me with memories that will last a lifetime. I will always remember learning how to ______ for the first time, the feeling of ______, and my trip to ______. I want every child to go to camp to make unforgettable memories and benefit from these opportunities that I was fortunate enough to be provided with.
I am volunteering with an organization called SCOPE that sends children from underserved communities to camp. No pressure to donate but any contribution will be extremely appreciated. I have attached the link to donate below; thank you all so much for your support!
