Annual Giving Campaign Volunteer Resources

Energizing Our Community Together

As we come together for this year’s Annual Giving Campaign, we’re not just raising funds’ we’re building bridges of opportunity and making a lasting impact on the lives of those around us. Reaching our ambitious goals enables the Y to continue providing essential programs and services that make a difference in the lives of countless individuals, allowing them to flourish and thrive.

Together, we make the connections that power our community. Thank you for joining us in this important work.

Tips For Success

Make It Personal: Tell Your Y Story

Think about the reasons why you support the Y, and share your story. You may be surprised what you learn about yourself and how your story and passion can touch others’ lives, too.

Give To Yourself

Make a donation towards your personal campaign and ask others to join you in giving.

Share the YMCA Impact

The stories about the YMCA’s impact in our community are seemingly endless. Visit the Greater Austin YMCA’s Youtube page and social media pages to share stories and videos with your network.

Ask… and Follow Up!

Following up is the key to success! Send a friendly follow-up, and include a pertinent update like your progress toward your personal goal, a new inspirational Y story or a countdown to the campaign’s end.

Host a Get-Together

In addition to sharing your efforts online, host a gathering. It could be a simple face-to-face coffee before work or a small event at home intended to raise funds. Getting together with friends to support causes you care about can be incredibly rewarding.

Share Your Thanks

Always remember to thank your donors. Get creative and make it fun! Recognize your supporters on social media by tagging them on Facebook or Instagram. A hand-written note goes a long way. If you need blank cards, reach out! We have some we can provide just for this purpose.
